Blizzard Is Sure That World Of Warcraft Will Last Another 10 Years

Game Lead Designer Ion Hazzikostas believes the game will keep going and there will be the 20th anniversary. "Yes, without a question. I can't tell you exactly what our 20th anniversary celebration event is going to be–maybe new content which hasn't been created–but I can tell you there's going to be one," Hazzikostas told PC Gamer in an interview.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's a Blizzard game so yeah it's certainly possible. The only ones that could kill the game really are Blizzard themselves but even then there are unofficial servers to play on

If Im right, then they gonna celebrate 10 year anniversary very soon.

World of Warcraft 2 won't happen until the technology to make it MUCH better is available to a majority of people.

So maybe like 6-10 years from now, they might release a new one that would unseat this game and finally get players to move on.

* If they did it now, it would look better but not like " OMG THIS IS AMAZING" type of better.

It needs to have the same impact that the original WoW had, so the longer they wait, the bigger and greater the game can be for everyone.

I wonder what the top hours in this game look like? Probably something unimaginable. Like actually years.

Yeah, I was pretty amazed when I checked out my time played on my main character to see that I had a total play time of over 4 months... That's 4 months of my life on there, with that single character... Considering I have like 8 more that are fairly high level... Pretty crazy.

I am at 243 days 6 hours 7 minutes and 4 seconds, I just logged in to do /played to find out lol. Thats just on one character though, I have another 4 lvl 90s I didnt wanna check them its depressing.

My total playtime was around 860 days or more, you can count that if you like. :P

I started around April 17th to sometime in February 2011. Cataclysm wasn't exactly exciting.

If Everquest can still be running and releasing xpacs (last released in Oct 2013 and another rumored soon to be released), I'm pretty sure that WoW will last for however long as Blizzard wants it to.

Sure will last ten years seeing how Blizzard isn't really doing anything else well at least anything new.

Spinal1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

Dafuq you talking about? Not a fanboy but I'm at least informed when it comes to games.

Blizzard just released Hearthstone which has been a huge success an stole a lot of card game players from Magic. And is set to become an esport.

They also got a moba in the works which I'm not into mobas. And Diablo is a beast no other action rpg comes close.

I'm sorry mate you should think before you type. There's a reason Blizzard entertainment has the best mmo out after 10 years still the king.

Roccetarius1507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

Blizzard isn't moving out from their safe zone, is what he meant i think. They're still focusing on the same franchises. They haven't actually created anything new from scratch, other than Titan which sounded like a complete failure if the comparisons were true.

you may need to play Path of Exile no hype just killer
