Thinking about the acquisition by MS, made me wonder. VR gaming is finally on the rise with headsets that don’t cost the earth or give most people motion sickness and many see this as a big part of the future of gaming.
Makes me wonder if MS went looking for some big IP’s that would have instant appeal if they were available as VR environments. Certainly Azeroth is one of, if not the largest online world in terms of development and depth. If they are thinking of going after that market in the long term, WoW as a VR game would certainly be a very large carrot to dangle.
Obviously this would mean a complete rework of the game, but in a sense that is long overdue and it won’t happen for a couple of years anyway since the next expac must be pretty well fleshed out by now. We will see.
