StarCraft spin off?

Gaming, Entertainment and Science
Hello

I accidentally found this article
http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/02/blizzard-execs-want-to-reinvent-real-time-strategy-on-mobile-phones/

Does this means we could get a SC spin off game not only on mobile phones but pc too (just like HS is on pc)?
I myself would like some spin off games because this is my favorite franchise and I hope Blizzard will never abandon it.
I could even imagine Blizzard creating a Homeworld version of SC that would be also nice.
Do you think this is a possibility or they would create a new IP for it?
What are your thoughts?
Could be Warcraft, could be Starcraft, could be Diablo, could even be Overwatch promotional stuff or some Heroes of the Storm multiverse for the giggles game.
They already have three or four multiverses over there completely separate from their main franchies.

Judging the links name thought its trying to reinvent real time strategy (not neccesarely RTS basebuilding like we got here) on MOBILE which will be severely limited due to hardware but im willing to give it a look if they decide to try.
I don't like the sound of "reinvent". If it's not broken, why fix it? That said, they could do something more like this:

Mobile phones and tablets today are pretty strong machines though. We are talking about devices with 1 or 2 GB internal memory and processors which rival desktop computer processors, the major downsides being overheating and battery life.

I had the opportunity to try out Hearthstone on an ASUS Zenpad, and boy did that thing overheat. Kudos to Blizzard for pulling it off in the first place, but they really need to come up with better optimization.
As far as I'm concerned, I'd love any type of mobile game, related to the StarCraft universe. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.
