"World of Warcraft" to accompany the players has gone through six years, recently, Blizzard's executives himself said that "World of Warcraft" has gradually entered a recession, this long-term resident in the ranks of the world's first online games the king of the make, when it recession, there Which game can replace their king as well?
New travel times of the online games industry, and those classic old games are gradually facing the "fatigued" and "lack of innovation," the pressure, more players began to sense a wide range of new online games.
"World of Warcraft" is gradually entering a recession
"World of Warcraft" has now entered the third piece of information, from the initial to the present, it has been a popular favorite players and support the game, but the growth over time, it gradually entered a " aging period ", both in the number of players or game update terms of quality, this phenomenon are gradually revealed.
Recently, the game's main system designer Greg Street has learned this, he said the production team of Warcraft is at the exploratory stage: "We do not have a lot of sustained and popular for so long to tell other examples of how we should do I think that new mechanisms and systems have been very simple, the problem lies in how they are together with the existing problem is "World of Warcraft" has been born six or seven years, continuous content makes the situation has become integrated very complex. "
New games continue to rise
For the international gaming market, one is faced with an aging veteran online games, online games are constantly emerging on the other hand the innovation. Like the "sword of the Spirit", "TERA", "FIREFALL", "ancient Century", etc., a variety of excellent new online games are beginning to gradually carving up the original part of the market share of those old games.
Looking at the recent launch of new online games work, we find that South Korean online game market in the world has entered a peak period, several large variety of new Korean online game companies to make a substantial push into the international market, which makes us understand that Today's competitive online market situation and began to tend to Korean tour companies.
In addition, the Russian gaming industry began to flourish, as the "Wizard of anger," the launch, indeed, so many players to experience the real charm of a Russian online games, although many players questioned the game there is in many ways This "World of Warcraft," the shadow, but it is undeniable that, as a gaming industry is not developed countries, "a shaman's anger" or let everyone know the strength of Russia is now online.
Turning now to the current status of China's online games, online games domestic enthusiasm for the 2D and different from the United States and Europe, the domestic online game players still on the 2D or high support rate, which also makes many domestic online game developers still do not stop development and improve the quality of 2D online games.
The domestic new class of 3D online games, old games are still a few companies or independent research and development, such as: a perfect world, the game snail, unicorn games, although they are still the main place in 3D online games, but the game content and innovation in Europe and America and Japan and South Korea but not a large developer of a breakthrough.
If the "World of Warcraft" really "retired" it?
From the previous high-level aspects of the statements made by Blizzard, as the "World of Warcraft," the developers, who themselves more clearly than the players of a game lifespans, so we can expect to one day "World of Warcraft" version will remain flat, and the new game will gradually replace its original position.
However, the look is now available again, those new games really have a work to re-create such a brilliant time?
Song in Beijing, said, "Elder Century" will go beyond the "World of Warcraft", we can not confirm this is not really achieved; Blizzard trying to update "Diablo 3", because this may be their new chips ; RED5's "FIREFALL" outstanding achievement indeed, but it is after all a FPS game; "TERA" slogan's great publicity and high profile, but ultimately success of the "hanbok failure, served on the successful" farce.
When after the fall of Warcraft, its status can be replaced if not, it still it is to run the body resurrection?
Then when the "World of Warcraft" really "retired" in the day, this king of the place online, Who can replace? Or will be "help wanted, and no one can" embarrassment it?
