Dataminer has already discovered evidence that Blizzard may be planning controller support for the MMORPG World of Warcraft. Now the developers have confirmed that support for gamepads is actually being worked on.
Can we World of Warcraft about to play with a controller soon? According to Blizzard, that's the plan. But that doesn't mean that a console version is also coming.
Will soon play WoW with controller
In the alpha of the new add-on Shadowlands, Dataminer discovered indications that controller support for the MMORPG World of Warcraft is being worked on. Blizzard has now even confirmed this.
"For a long time, some players have used third-party addons such as Console Port 17 to address certain accessibility issues," said community manager Randy "Kaivax" Jordan. "We want to make WoW more widely available where possible. So we're trying to support shadowlands, keyboard layout, camera, and turning on a character on controllers like the Xbox Adaptive Controller."
That said, you will actually be able to play WoW with an Xbox controller as soon as the Shadowlands addon appears and everything works. You shouldn't expect a console version of the MMORPG anyway.
