VG247 Interview with Terran Gregory & Gary Platner



We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!

Check out the full interview over at VG247.

Interview Highlights

  • Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion.
  • Terran is really sad that gnomes didn’t make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created.
  • Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before.
  • It’s Blizzard’s mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can.
  • Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal.
  • With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There’sĀ even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden.
  • Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions.
  • They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations.
  • Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas.
  • WoW is a living, breathing game. The team’s always looking for ways to improve it.
  • They’ll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support.
  • From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It’s an evergreen franchise that they’ve maintained like a “carefully-tended bonsai tree.”
