World of Warcraft would require 'significant' changes for free-to-play

Blizzard has no plans to make its massively multiplayer online game World of Warcraft into a free-to-play title, production director J. Allen Brack told Eurogamer.

Brack spoke with the publication during BlizzCon 2013, which is currently underway in Anaheim, Calif., at the Anaheim Convention Center. According to Brack, such a change would require "significant" reworking of the game's structure.

"We didn't make the game to be free-to-play," Brack said. "It's not something we're currently considering."

The game's first 20 levels are currently available for free with the Starter Edition — a set that allows players to experience the game while limiting some features. The fifth and latest expansion for the game, Warlords of Draenor, was announced yesterday.
