While console MMORPGs and MOBAs are more than ever closer to the norm than an exception, Blizzard isn't in a hurry to join the fray.
Y u do dis
Same rumours have been flying around since the 360 launched
isn't world of warcraft in a decline for the past few years?
Its been in slow decline for about 5
yes, but when you are that huge there is nowhere to go but down. Dont kid yourself, the game is still huge.
It wouldn't sell much because the keyboard is pretty much mandatory for this game. Otherwise the experience would really be dumbed down I guess
It wouldn't be too far off. All the face buttons and triggers could be used just like you use on a keyboard, then pressing L1 to give you a new set of commands with those same buttons. In terms if controls it wouldn't hinder the experience at a level where you say it would make the game unenjoyable. But the biggest thing is blizzard milking pay to play, console users aren't dumb enough to support that long term.
I haven't played WoW in a long while (since WotLK), but I feel like it still would not enter consoles without a major dumbing down. Simply because it was not built with consoles in mind when designing its UI or gameplay. It would have to fundamentally be changed so that it can accomodate the controller. For example in the picture link below, this is just a random high-level raid scenario where abilities and stats are all over the place. It would be a nightmare to try and shift through all your abilities like this. I am not turning down that offer though, if they could make a WoW on console, that would be pretty amazing. Just the sheer effort of porting this beast is commendable in itself. https://shamusyoung.com/twe...
Are you trolling? Console gamers will buy any stupid crap and pay just to use any online services at all.
Keyboard in a social sense. Without communication WOW is a shell of a game its supposed to be. And voice chat instead? Maybe, but still wouldnt be a complete experience
it would sell well if it was done well, but I dont know if it would actually make them have many more subscribers since even console gamers just play it on pc.
We have warframe so who cares.
Nooooo? /s im more concerned about their games that would make sense on consoles like hearthstone, world of warcraft is a sub based game ask ESO how asking players to pay for two subscriptions works out and besides that its winding down in popularity and has been for years i doubt there is enough demand for the game on consoles to justify the work it would take to port 13 years worth of content and systems to console and as for hots as much as i would love it to be on console i dont think the audience is there for mobas but i really think they could get it to work i mean they did a great job with diablo 3.
people would buy it, but I think console gamers are fine just playing on pc since it doesn't need a "gaming" machine to run. Final Fantasy 14 is doing fine, and that game has much less subscribers than wow does even today.
WoW has been irrelevant for half a decade now.
