WoW - Wrath of the Lich King - Interview @ Eurogamer

by Woges, 2008-05-16 16:09:26

Oli Welsh has a long interview with Jeff Kaplan and Tom Chilton (Designers), and J. Allen Brack (Producer) about WotLK, upcoming MMORPGs, new classes, raiding etc etc etc. 

Eurogamer: You've got a couple of fairly heavyweight competitors launching this year - Age of Conan and Warhammer Online. Those games both have a heavy focus on PVP in the endgame. Do you think you might lose quite a few PVP players to these games?

J. Allen Brack: We don't really think about it like that. We don't make games in a vacuum, we don't just play World of Warcraft, I love online games, I play a lot of online games, and I'm really excited about those games coming out because I want to play them. I think that's fairly common across the board.

I think there's room for all three of those games to be successful. I mean, the worst thing for our industry is for online games to come out and fail. They cost so much money to develop, and it's so difficult, and it's such a huge labour of love to launch an online game, for it to fail is sad for everybody.
