If Diablo 3 does well do you see WOW in the future for console?

There's just no way WoW would work on consoles. I've played it a LOT on PC and to do it properly you need some pretty good reflexes and have to have a fairly large amount of hotkeys available at any given time. As a Mage just in my "normal" rotation I had about 5 spells, 2-3 evasive moves, and another 3 or so things I would have to keep applying to myself. That's all in pretty rapid fire...

I can see a game set in Warcraft's world on XB1/PS4, but it would really have to be completely redone.

WoW seems kind of..last year. I feel like most people who would enjoy playing it already have. There is the possibility that there are some people who would play it on XBOX but not PC, though I doubt that demographic is large enough to warrant porting the game.

I do, however, think that if The Elder Scrolls Online and D3 do well that we could likely see other, new MMOs appear on consoles. They could even sell a controller add-on which connected where the key board does and features hotkeys for MMO skills.

Just thinking Blizzard has dedicated console design teams now. We will see more from them besides D3. Just remains to be seen what?

I don't see why not, Bethesda seems to be putting out Elder Scrolls Online on consoles. Heck I think star Wars the Old Republic would have been more successful if it was put on next gen consoles as well.

I hate games with bad game design

We NEED a game set in the Warcraft world. One maybe that plays similar to Fable or something and is somehow done so that while it's not an MMO it's a somewhat persistent world.

This. And even if they figured out a way to make PvE work, there is no way they would figure out a way for people to be able to use all the skills needed in PvP. Especially as a Hunter, I remember having probably 12 keybinds I used frequently, and another couple that you would use situationally.

It's been "dead" to me for a long time... IMO the hand holding in that game got WAAAAAAY out of control and seeped into every aspect of the game. I played it the year it released (pre-battlegrounds) steadily for about two years and then on and off from that point through WotLK. BC was pretty awesome but WotLK started a downhill spiral.

It's been time for WoW 2 for a looooong time now...
