Garrisons Probably Won’t Be in Future World of Warcraft Expansions

The latest expansion for World of Warcraft introduced Garrisons, an addition a large portion of Blizzard's MMO community has fallen in love with. Unfortunately, however, it looks like they won't be supported outside the Warlords of Draenor expansion. 

"I think there’s no question that we’re going to keep pushing the Garrison feature forward throughout Warlords of Draenor," lead game designer Ion Hazzikostas told IGN​. "But I think as we look into future patches beyond that it’s likely we’re going to grow the Garrison concept further."

"As we think into expansions beyond WoD, I think in many ways the Garrison as an entity is very much a product of Draenor," he added. "But I think the gameplay, offline progression, having a sense of ownership and a place to call home… I think those are potential more universal things that even if there aren’t 1:1 of those terms or systems, the concepts and the type of gameplay has been embraced and so we think it’s clearly a great part of World of Warcraft."
