World of Warcraft: Don’t expect the game on consoles any time soon

Though MMOs like DC Universe Online, Neverwinter, Final Fantasy XIV and Star Trek: Online have — or are soon making — the jump over to consoles, don’t expect World of Warcraft to follow suit.

World of Warcraft is designed, first and foremost, for PC,” Blizzard’s Chadd Nervig told Stevivor last week. “That’s what we think of when we play WoW, when we think of WoW and where WoW‘s going.

“We don’t have any plans right now to bring it to console but we’re always considering options,” Nervig, Technical Game Designer, continued. “So no promises for the future one way or another; we’ve nothing to announce for that.”

World of Warcraft‘s latest expansion — “Legion” — unlocks tomorrow afternoon on PC here in Australia.
