World of Warcraft game director Tom Chilton has told Videogamer that the MMO giant could someday be micro-transaction based.
However, while that remains a possibility, it doesn't mean it will happen.
"I certainly think it's possible that we could do some kind of micro-transaction stuff," said Chilton. "Whether or not World of Warcraft ever goes the direction of, I guess like Anarchy Online has gone the direction of going free-to-play with micro-transactions. Whether we ever shift to a free-to-play model is really too hard to say at this point.
"Anything I say now could easily five years from now end up seeming like, oh my gosh, that was an incredibly dumb thing to say."
