Which titles from Blizzard Entertainment will find their way onto the consoles in the future? As the company confirmed on demand, we can rule out “World of Warcraft” on the one hand and “Heroes of the Storm” on the other.
In recent years, the US studio Blizzard Entertainment increasingly put on the two home consoles Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
Despite the commercial success that titles such as “Diablo 3” or “Overwatch” had on the consoles, we should not expect that this development will lead, sooner or later, to all the big names in the company’s path Find consoles. For example, titles like “World of Warcraft” or “Heroes of the Storm,” according to Blizzard Entertainment, would simply not be suitable for a console release.
World of Warcraft & Heroes of the Storm: Will not appear for the consoles
Daniel Stahl, the producer behind “World of Warcraft”, adds, “You know, World of Warcraft was, in my opinion, designed for the PC right from the start. It would take so many different changes to make it a console game. We want to continue World of Warcraft as it is now. If we were to develop it for the consoles, we would have to make it something completely different. ”
Similarly, the case is “Heroes of the Storm”. Here leads the responsible Lead Hero Designer Matt Villers: “Our focus is on the PC. That was right from the start. It would probably take a lot of changes to make the gameplay on the console work. To this end, there are currently no plans. “
