Additionally, Chilton noted that Blizzard was warming to the idea of reconfiguring World of Warcraft as a free-to-play title.
I’ve always wondered how long until WoW went free-to-play. With their recent additions to their online store, and the dwindling population, I expect it’s now only a matter of time before we see a completely free version.

Jennifer Helper was working on sequel Dragon Age: Inquisition but is quitting BioWare this week to go freelance, in large part thanks to threats she and others of the team received in the wake of Dragon Age II’s release.
