Character model rework 25% complete
Speaking to Tom Chilton and Cory Stockton this morning, the question came up of the character model rework. Unusually, these guys actually seemed happy to give us quite a lot of information about where they were going with the character models. Most notably, when pushed, they let us know that the percentage completion of the new character models was as follows:
TC: “Um, 20% maybe?”
CS: “Yeah 25%, maybe 25. That could be a safe number.”
TC: “But yeah, there’s a long way to go. And I also don’t know that, when we launch the new character models, I don’t know that they’ll all be done at the same time. We’ll probably have a good number of them done, and we’ll launch those, and we’ll continue to update more throughout the patch cycle. We figure players would rather have some earlier than wait forever until they’re all done. Not forever but, a longer time. Might feel forever. Blizzard soon.”

Tom and Cory also went into quite some detail about the reasons why the process took so long, and brought up the importance of maintaining a character’s identity while also updating the models. They recognized how important that was to players, and how many players identified heavily with the look of their characters’ models.
