With Microsoft’s acquisition of Blizzard, the potential for World of Warcraft on consoles, especially the Xbox Series X, gained traction. However, as of now, no concrete discussions or decisions have been made regarding this development. While Blizzard is open to the idea, there are no definite plans or timelines for World of Warcraft on consoles. The shift from PC to console requires careful consideration, and players will need to remain patient for any official announcements.
When Gamesradar asked if Blizzard Entertainment finds the concept interesting: “Of course! Yeah, we talk about it all the time.”
Questioned about whether technical hurdles or complications would prevent World of Warcraft from coming to consoles, the vice president expressed uncertainty about this being a limiting factor.”Well, it depends on who you ask. I don’t think it is, frankly. I think we’re pretty well positioned, which is kind of why we talk about it.”
