Is Blizzard Developing a Free-To-Play MMO?

Is Blizzard Developing a Free-To-Play MMO?

With so many MMO’s going or coming out as Free-to-Play, it is no surprise that Blizzard may be developing one. At least that is what a source said to Develop.

While Blizzard Entertainment has benefited greatly from the massive subscriber base of World of Warcraft, they sort have already instituted a free-to-play model in their game. Players can play up to level 20 without having to enter into a subscription. This is probably because their subscriber numbers have gone down over the last year. Perhaps this new MMO can help stem Blizzard hemorrhaging too many more subscribers, while roping in some more money.
