Blizzard’s said World of Warcraft’s just-released update 4.3 will be the last before the launch of the MMO’s next expansion, Mists of Pandaria.
Lead quest designer Dave Kosak told Videogamer the recent update is “the climax” of the game’s content run for Cataclysm.
“4.3 is definitely the climax of Cataclysm, so there’s no more Cataclysm content,” said Kosak.
“Traditionally we’ve had a grace period where we patch the game before the expansion comes out and you get sort of mechanical changes before you get the new expansion content. So we’ll have a world event prior to Mists of Pandaria, but that’s mostly a part of Mists of Pandaria’s launch and it’s not really more Cataclysm content.”
Blizzard has yet to actually put a date on the next expansion since its unveil at Blizzcon last October, with the big ticket for this year almost set to be Diablo III and maybe StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
Update 4.3 Hour of Twilight launched last month.
