Classic is blizzard’s practice/test subject to analyze player behavior pre-launch for a large MMO so they can use that data to maximize player engagement for their true project: WoW 2 - The Invasion of Sanctuary. The biggest gaming crossover ever conceived. The Gnomish and Goblin engineers are at it again and this time their curiosity and love of explosions has ripped a dimensional portal open into HELL!
It is heavily predicted that at the end of BFA the Alliance and Horde will no longer be at odds, and this timing couldn’t be more perfect as WoW 2 introduces the world of Azeroth to the world of Sanctuary. The pieces of the soul stones have been recovered and Diablo threatens to destroy Azeroth! All WoW races are now joined together to fight this new evil. The twist is that you now have the option to play as a minion of Diablo in his new conquest against both Azeroth and the Nephalim, OR you can play as the Nephalim in staving off Diablo (again) and the new threat of the warring hordes of this strange new world “Azeroth.” Thats right…there’s three factions now!
I’m calling it now. Classic is a lab test. WoW retail is dying. WoW 2 - The Invasion of Santuary is inevitable. Diablo Immortal is all part of this plan as well, Immortal is going to introduce the crossover to the world at Blizzcon this year. This way BFA can unite the PC players for the new game and Immortal can get the mobile gamers wet. Yeah I said it, this game will be multiplatform PC/Console/Mobile.
If you are not juiced yet…Just wait for WoW 2 patch 1.69 when amidst the intense infinite conflict the gnomish engineers receive a strange transmission from SPACE! It is FROM THE FUTURE and a strange small planet called Earth, an elite team calling themselves Overwatch has been observing the struggle and want to join the fight. The Overwatch toons will be implemented similar like a hero class and you can choose any of the three factions. OMG I’m so pumped.
