Asmongold says WoW on console could save the game long-term

The 31-year-old streamer was live on October 13 when he explained why World of Warcraft ported to consoles would be game-changing.

“I would absolutely say adding WoW to console would be good for the game. It would 100% make the game better.”

He continued, “If they (Blizzard) were able to add WoW to console I think it would give Microsoft a bigger incentive to continue building WoW and making it better.”

Asmon pointed to other games which have found massive success on console, like Final Fantasy XIV, wondering why WoW couldn’t follow in its footsteps.

He also said that it’s likely that if Blizzard does add official controller support to WoW soon, it could be for accessibility reasons.

Overall, if WoW can to consoles, the move would introduce the game to millions of new players, and Asmongold believes that’s vital to keeping the game alive.
