“Multiple expansions” on for WoW

Will there be life to World of Warcraft beyond Mists of Pandaria? “Absolutely, because I know what the next one is. So, that being said, I think there’s a lot of opportunity,” is the answer given to that question by Blizzard COO Paul Sams.

So there, in an flash, Sams confirmed the wildly popular MMO is getting a sixth expansion down the line, but not without being vague about it, as expected. “I got the pitch from Chris Metzen of what they plan for 6.0 and I’m pretty geeked up about it. They already know what they’re going to be doing for multiple expansions ahead.”

As for the forthcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion, Sams thinks “the future of World of Warcraft continues to be bright and I think Mists of Pandaria is going to breathe huge life into what I believe is the best MMO out there. I think the number of people we have playing and the level of enthusiasm they have for the game suggests that to be the case.”

Added Sams, “this is the next of many ways in which we’re going to grow and improve and evolve this game.”

Don’t forget that sign-ups for the upcoming beta for Mists of Pandaria are now open.
