The latest "huge patch", 5.2, is proof of their commitment and it's what fans can expect "year after year." The studio admits they need to battle the idea that official support will be drying up.
Almost a decade of WoW has built one tremendous community, but with that comes the expectation it'll be winding down. Not so, says Blizzard's Greg Street.
"I really want players to get the message that this is a commitment of Blizzard and the World Of Warcraft team," he told , "and this is the type of content players can expect year after year." Patch 5.2: The Thunder King has and it adds a new raid, new world bosses, a new zone, a new faction and tons more.
"Sometimes, there’s the risk that players say ‘gosh, this games been going on for nine years, certainly it's winding down or it's something Blizzard is putting out to pasture and isn’t really going to support much anymore."
"But this huge patch is our example of no, World Of Warcraft is alive and well and as long as we keep having so many players, we will keep making the best content we can possibly make."
