Blizzard Looks Toward The Future
7:30 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Yesterday Eurogamer posted an interview with several high ranking figures at Blizzard, including the company's president Mike Morhaime. The future of the company was discussed, touching on the possibility of new game worlds and what might be in store for their existing game universes. Morhaime even expressed interest in creating movie adaptions of Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo.

And looking to the far future? Blizzard has existed for fifteen years already. What would the next - say - ten bring them? "One of the things I'd like to see is to expand and broaden the player base further, so gaming becomes more mainstream, so that more people outside of the core audience are familiar with our gaming world," Mike states, before turning onto something. "I would love for us to release feature-length films in each of the worlds. I think that the universes are rich and strong enough to support that kind of thing, and it'd enhance the connection that players have with the game. I think World of Warcraft has opened a lot of doors for us, being so popular and having such a large community. And I hope that we'll able to see something happen in the next five years."
For the full interview head on over to Eurogamer at the link below.
