World of Warcraft Game Director Dismisses Rumors of Eventual Console Port - IGN
Over the years, there's been a series of rumors that, one day, World of Warcraft would get a console port. But at least for now, WoW game director Ion Hazzikostas is dismissing these hopes.
In an interview about the game's newly announced expansion, Dragonflight, I asked Hazzikostas if a console port was on the horizon specifically because of the planned UI overhaul announced as a part of the expansion.
With the MMO getting improved controller support recently and now a fully customizable HUD that players can move around however they like, the time seems ripe to make the jump to consoles.
But Hazzikostas doesn't seem keen.
"Nah, I think World of Warcraft is a game designed from the ground up for the PC," he says. "I think we've just been looking at the ways in which add-ons have at times felt increasingly required, or like the first thing you do when someone comes to the game for the first time is tell them, 'Hey, go download this add-on pack and move this stuff around' and we want to do better for our players."
