Will Blizzard ever release a version of WoW with better graphics?

I'm getting tired of these N64 graphics. And yes im playing ultra/high.
Graphics can stay the same for those with casual PCs, but have another higher end graphically improved client for top notch PCs.

Win win for all players.

Also, when is Titan coming out and is it gonna be another mmorpg? As if we need another one these days.

You have some VERY rose tinted goggles of the N64 if you think it had graphics anywhere near as "good" as WoW.

And to answer your question, no. There will just be one WoW, with it's graphics improving over time.

All other platforms improve every few months. Its taking years for wow to evolve from super Nintendo to N64. Next evolution will be playstation 1 graphics in 2 years or so.

Alright, going to have to call out that you have no idea what you're talking about, and go about on a slight gaming elitism tangent, because misinformation irritates me.

From a technical standpoint, Gamecube was more than the PS2 and could produce better graphics. Power-wise, it was XBox>GC>PS2. So that just invalidates your whole "evolving to maybe PS1 graphics." The N64 also was more powerful than the PSOne, but limited by the design of cartridges at the time. Pretty much shows you have no idea what you're talking about.

WoW is not a platform. The PC is a platform. WoW's ENGINE, however, is being upgraded, and on Ultra settings, is easily one of the prettier games in terms of art design. May not be the most graphically stunning game, but compared to the abundance of **** on PC and console alike, it's still pretty damn good. Particularly it's animated shadow work.

Thirdly, this is a PC game. Get your old ass console comparisons out of here. And if this is in fact legitimate, and not a troll attempt... For the love of everything, please share whatever it is you're drinking.

Also, art style > graphics, IMO.

All these questions have been answered. Blizzard is updating the graphics with the next expansion: "Burning Crusade 2: Demonic Resurgance!".

As for Titan, it was announced at this past year's Blizzcon it will be released in June of 2014, under the name "Rising Tyde" (Titan was revealed to be a codename in a tweet by Metzen last week). It is going to be an MMO yes, but with a single-player offline version (somewhat like Resident Evil 6). You will be able to participate in larger campaigns online, as well as online-only content packs that are pay-2-play.
