CEO of Blizzard Entertainment, Mike Morhaime, has announced that there is a 6th expansion to World of Warcraft in the works. And just a few days ago it was announced that the 5th expansion for World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor, was in the works. This will be the first time ever that Blizzard has been working on more than one expansion for World of Warcraft at a time, as stated by the man himself, Mike Morhaime.
“We’ve already started working on the expansion after [Warlords of Draenor]. We’ve never done that in the past. We’ve been doing one expansion at a time, sort of a very linear content creation model, and we’ve looked at ways that we can parallelize that. So that while we’re working on this expansion we’re looking at the new one.”
“It’s going to be on us and our development team to continually look at ways to evolve the game and keep it relevant, and look for new ways of maintaining engagement within the game. We view expansions as a huge opportunity to do that.”
