Blizzard: Bringing World of Warcraft to PS4 Would Be An Exciting Challenge
Would require a different approach without keyboard and mouse.
Blizzard’s lead systems designer Greg Street is psyched about the next generation, especially when it comes to World of Warcraft on next generation consoles like Sony’s PlayStation 4.
Speaking to NowGamer, he said, “I would personally be very excited to see that. It would be a huge challenge to take something like World Of Warcraft with its massive hard drive footprint and its reliance on mouse and keyboard, I think if we were going to make a MMO for consoles then we might take it in a different direction.”
Regarding next generation consoles in general, Street said, “Gosh, the next few years are going to be so interesting in this industry. We get to see where do the next generation of consoles go and where do tablets and portable devices go, and what are players most interested in?
“I don’t have a crystal ball and I don’t know where it’s going, but I know it’s going to be a fun ride.”
