World of Warcraft expansions 5 & 6?
Blizzard's COO Paul Sams has confirmed that the newest expansion for Blizzard's World of Warcraft is already being built. Mists of Pandaria is hardly out the door and Blizzard has said there will be more expansions to come. Sams also said that there was a pitch for a 6th expansion which he was “Pretty geeked up about.” These two new expansions are shrouded in mystery but it was hinted they might be extensions of the Pandaria story.
Although World of Warcraft’s subscriptions have dropped over 1.7million from February last year, Blizzard is still confident enough in WoW’s player base to already have two more expansions planned. Although WoW is the most played MMO out there, it is a little presumptuous to plan two expansions before you can accurately gauge the success of the one you just finished. Sams was quoted saying, “This is the next of many ways in which we’re going to grow and improve and evolve this game.”
We have yet to see what and when these expansions will surface but keep an eye out for Blizzard to announce another expansion to their golden egg, World of Warcraft.
