bigwig Mike Morhaime
gave an interview to GamesIndustry.biz today to coincide with the launch of World of Warcraft's
latest expansion. "One of the things people will notice with Mists of Pandaria
in comparison to our other expansions is the variety of things there are to do; it will feel like a bigger, meatier expansion compared to Cataclysm
," Morhaime said.
He also talks about the ongoing post-launch plans for Diablo III
as well as the e-sport community surrounding Blizzard's StarCraft
franchise. Morhaime also offers a frank assessment of the reasons for Star Wars: The Old Republic's
quick move to a free-to-play model. "Probably if they [BioWare
] had to do it over again they might have held the game over and worked on the endgame content a bit more," he said.
