With a tease yesterday
confirming that Blizzard are already planning ahead with future expansions for popular MMO World of Warcraft, today marks the full reveal of our interview with Ion Hazzikostas.
Not only is there confirmation of future expansions to come for the goliath MMO, but Hazzikostas also talks a bit about the development process of Warlords of Draenor, World of Warcraft's fifth expansion that is due out in November.
While having 10 years of content is a great strength in many ways, the game has a lot of depth; there is a lot to see and it also increasingly becomes a barrier for someone who just wants to play with their friends who are already established. Or for the person who wants to check out the new thing they saw a commercial for. But at the same time doing that also had a detrimental effect onto the pacing of the experience. It was originally designed for a very different speed of levelling. There are issues that we still need to go back and correct when we get the chance.
