After the successful release of the World of Warcraft expansion, everybody would be tempted to believe that other developers of high profile MMO games will throw in their own expansion, hoping for the best. However, this is not correct, at least not when it comes to Mythic and Warhammer Online: game developer Mark Jacobs announced that there are no plans to release an expansion.
On the Warhammer Online discussion boards, the developer said: “Just so you know, we haven’t begun work on an XPack yet and aren’t going to until we get a lot more done in WAR. The expansion can wait a little longer but the main game can’t. We are not pushing an XPack out the door at the expense of WAR.”
He also admitted that there are already a few interesting ideas regarding the expansion, but at the moment the team is focusing on polishing the game and making it even better than it already is. And this is something that really deserves a thumbs up: to see game developers care about their customers and product and to refuse the idea of presumably easy cash is something we rarely see these days. But probably not all the developers have games with such a huge potential like Mythic’s Warhammer Online.
