The game WOW will have at least two expansion packs in the future
Last week, at the Analysis of Network Broadcasting Conference of Activision Blizzard, Chief Executive Officer, Mike Morhaime said that the first beta test of Diablo 3 would be carried out on September 11. If everything goes smoothly, it is the formal test day of this new game.
At the same time, Thomas Tippi, COO ＆CFO of Activision Blizzard, has confirmed that in the next three years, Blizzard Entertainment will sequentially release the first expansion pack of Diablo 3, the fourth and the fifth expansion pack of World of Warcraft, two expansion packs of Starcraft and the new online game temporarily named Titans which is still under researching and development.
The game World of Warcraft is still the most successful online game so far.
In addition, last week Greg Street, the chief system designer of World of Warcraft in an interview has admitted that the game World of Warcraft has entered the market for about 7 years and now it is now in a recession. What’s more, the research and development team feel that they lose their direction in the new field. But according to the next three years’ product tables mentioned above announced by Blizzard, we can reach a conclusion that no matter the project team of WOW loses their direction or not, Blizzard still need them to insist on to the time that the another two expansion packs of WOW release. Maybe Blizzard wants to depend on Titans to control the future game situation.
