World Of Warcraft Dev Shatters Hopes With Comment About Potential Xbox Version

We've been hoping to see an Xbox version of World of Warcraft for a long time now (in fact, it looked like it was going to happen at one point in 2020), but it seems Blizzard has no plans to introduce a console version anytime soon.

Speaking to IGN recently, Game Director Ion Hazzikostas was specifically asked whether a console version was in the works due to the planned UI overhaul coming soon, but shot down any suggestion of that very quickly:

"Nah, I think World of Warcraft is a game designed from the ground up for the PC."

"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."

You have to wonder at this point whether there's any hope of World of Warcraft ever reaching consoles, even despite Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard — come on Phil Spencer, make it happen for us!

The game is back in the news at the moment due to the recent reveal of the Dragonlight expansion, which doesn't yet have a release date. Wrath of the Lich King Classic will also be dropping later this year. Exciting times... if you're on PC.

Do you think World of Warcraft will ever make it to Xbox? Let us know down in the comments below.
