World of Warcraft Graphical Overhaul Hinted At


In an interview with EuroGamer, producer J. Allen Brack said that there’s a possibility of a visual upgrade for the insanely popular MMO World of Warcraft down the line. The next expansion, Wrath of the Lich King will receive a small boost, though it’s hardly a high end upgrade.

However, Brack also noted that when competitors upgraded their engines, many players would stick to the original version for various reasons:

“A lot of people continued to play with the original client, because it was faster, or they preferred it, or were just used to it or whatever and so for me as a game developer, the idea that we would spend so much time and energy on something and have people go, ‘meh, that’s not really for me,’ that’s not very exciting.”
