So last week Blizzard announced the latest World of Warcraft expansion-Legion. We admit that it feels like it was only recently that the previous expansion was announced, and in case that pace wasn’t fast enough for you, you might be interested to learn that Blizzard apparently has the next expansion already planned.
This was revealed by World of Warcraft’s lead designer Tom Chilton in an interview with the folks at GameSpot last week. According to Chilton, he was quoted as saying, “It is crazy that we’re this far along.” He went on to reveal that, “We do have more expansion packs planned already.”
However apart from admitting that they had more expansions planned, Chilton unsurprisingly did not give much details away. That being said we have to wonder if this sudden rush at creating expansions has anything to do with the World of Warcraft subscriber numbers which has been declining rather rapidly.
Just recently the official numbers were revealed at the subscriber base was sitting at around 5.6 million, representing an all time low in the past few years. In fact the game lost a whopping 1.5 million players in the course of 3 months, so it would almost seem like the expansions would be a desperate grab at the attention of players, so it remains to be seen if the new expansions will help rejuvenate the game or if it is simply a band-aid.
