No Subscription Fee....at Some Point

No Subscription Fee....at Some Point - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

World of Warcraft's lead designer, Tom Chilton, spent some time with PC Gamer talking about the thought that World of Warcraft might go free to play. Chilton, raising eyebrows and blood pressures, indicated that "at some point, it may not make sense for us to have a subscription fee."

Here are a couple of Chilton's thoughts on the WoW free to play future:

"I can definitely imagine that being the case with World of Warcraft. If another game comes along and blows us away it may not make sense for us to have a subscription fee. Or even further down the line, when we have another MMO out.”

“We’re not spending a lot of time thinking about it. It’s not something that’s a reality for us in the near future.”
