The Mists of Pandaria expansion for World of Warcraft is still several months away. but Blizzard has revealed that there will be at least two more expansions beyond the panda-tastic adventure. I guess 100 would be a nice round number for the max character level.
Blizzard COO Paul Sams told CVG that "the lore creators" already have a framework for expansion five and that Chris Metzen, the company's head of creative development, has even pitched a plan for number six.
"I think Mists of Pandaria is going to breathe huge life into what I believe is the best MMO out there," Sams said. "I think the number of people we have playing and the level of enthusiasm they have for the game suggests that to be the case. This is the next of many ways in which we're going to grow and improve and evolve this game."
It will be interesting to see how Blizzard's subscriber numbers react to Pandaria. The number has dwindled from more than 12 million down to about 10.3 million in November and 10.2 million in their February financial report.
