'World of Warcraft' team wants yearly expansions

By
World of Warcraft designer Greg Street has revealed that Blizzard Entertainment is hoping to release yearly expansions.

The popular MMO has seen four major updates since its release in late 2004, but the studio is aiming to churn out new content on a more regular basis.

"We find that expansions are what bring players back to World of Warcraft," explained Street in an interview with Digital Spy.

"Really good patches will keep them, but they aren't as good at bringing players back to the game.

"We really want to get to a cadence where we can release expansions more quickly. Once a year I think would be a good rate. I think the best thing we can do for new players is to keep coming out with regular content updates."

Blizzard announced the game's fifth expansion pack during its BlizzCon 2013 event earlier this month.
