Patches Beyond 6.2 Confirmed; Flying Not Coming in Warlords or Beyond

This is a repost from: News  2015-05-22.

 

In an interview with Philip Kollar of Polygon, World of Warcraft lead designer Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas has confirmed that Blizzard is working on the next patch for Warlords of Draenor beyond Patch 6.2. The interview also confirms that flying is not on the table to return in Warlords or future expansions, among other details.

 

You can read the full interview on Polygon. Highlights are included below.

 

- Flying is not coming in Warlords, nor is it likely to return in the future:

 

"Having looked at how flying has played out in the old world in the last couple of expansions, we realized that while we were doing it out of this ingrained habit after we introduced flying in The Burning Crusade, it actually detracted from gameplay in a whole lot of ways," Hazzikostas explains. "While there was certainly convenience in being able to completely explore the world in three dimensions, that also came at the expense of gameplay like targeted exploration, like trying to figure out what's in that cave on top of a hill and how do I get up there."

 

- The Adventure Guide, Timewalking, and other features will be the major focus of 6.2 alongside the new Hellfire Citadel raid and Tanaan Jungle zone.

 

- Patch 6.2 isn't the final update for Warlords of Draenor (emphasis added):

 

"We've got plenty of more story to be told after this," Hazzikostas says when asked whether patch 6.2 would be the last big content update for Warlords of Draenor.

That Burning Crusade feel, only now with even more Fel badness.

 

Do you have any thoughts on the permanent removal of flying, or predictions for the upcoming patch after 6.2? Let us know!

 

We now know authoritatively that there will be additional patches in Warlords of Draenor beyond 6.2, and the dev team has suggested flying is not only not returning in WoD, but may not return in any future WoW content.
