For many of us, the passing of Robin Williams is still fresh on our minds, and while many of us never knew him personally, his acting career affected all our lives in one way or another. So when people began to ask Blizzard if they could include a NPC (Non-Playable Character) in the latest expansion of World of Warcraft, Blizzard may have taken that request very seriously. It looks very possible that Robin Williams will live on in World of Warcraft, with the above character model being found among the files of the Warlords of Draenor expansion.
The model is labelled “Robin” and looks like a very familiar genie, presumably celebrating one Williams’ most popular roles as the Genie in the animated film, Aladdin. While we don’t know what the “Robin” NPC will say, it seems like it would be a waste not to give it an endless supply of Williams’ most iconic lines. There also appear to be two other “Robin” NPCs which are allegedly going to be added in patch 6.01. While it’s still not 100% confirmed by Blizzard, if true, this may be the perfect immortalization of the great comedy actor for gamers.
What do you think about Robin Williams being added to World of Warcraft as a NPC?
