Wow is still making money and if they start on it now they have no clue where the genre is going, for instance could all new RPGs be mainly VR 5 years from now or none of them depending on how popular and good the hardware get. 2025 would be a safer bet and probablt get more people nostalgic into it as well.Alverant said:Just make WoW 2 and be done with it.
I'd say it's more likely to be the style of MMO... i.e. at
the moment the biggest MMOs (in the west) tend to theme-parks (WoW,
FFXIV, GW2), however the sandbox and sand-park styles offer more promise (and
less demand on the Devs to constantly produce content), it's just that no one
has really cracked it for the mainstream, at least not yet...
With a number of differently styled MMOs (hopefully) launching in next few years it will be interesting to see which ones prove popular (if any), what they do right, and what mistakes they make. At that point Blizzard can look at the market, (hopefully) learn from the mistakes, and (hopefully) launch something that truly moves the MMO market forward (as opposed to just another theme-park with shinier graphics). Well, that's the dream at least.
