In an interview with Play at Games convention, production director Jay Allen Brack said that the team is “not motivated to try to move WoW to a console” although the Blizzard feel that console MMOs could work.

“Currently, we’re not really motivated to try to move WoW to a console,” he said.

“The biggest thing is that WoW wasn’t designed for a console, so retrofitting it would be a pretty serious challenge.

“That said I have seen people hooking controllers up to their consoles, it’s a little difficult though. An MMO on the console would be an MMO designed specifically for the console.”

Lead game designer Tom Chilton chimed in: “Well, I definitely think MMOs can work on consoles. No question that it’s a possibility.”
