Former World of Warcraft lead says AI is fine for the MMO “grunt work,” but not the creative tasks that “thousands of talented people” are dying to do

An industry veteran with time on World of Warcraft, a League of Legends spin-off, and an upcoming MMO currently codenamed Ghost reckons AI does have a place in game development, but only when it comes to the “grunt work.”

Fantastic Pixel Castle studio head and game director Greg Street – who served as WoW’s lead systems designer and a producer on a League of Legends MMO before founding his current studio – has taken to Twitter to share his thoughts on AI. For Street, AI can be useful to the game development process when it takes the inconsequential tedium out of it, but not when it’s allowed to take the lead.
