I once thought "How does World of Warcraft have all these different versions? Isn't it an MMO? How do you make like...sequels to an MMO? Shouldn't those just be updates?" but then came Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind and now I KINDA get it.
It's like a major addition to the game but at the same time it's separated from the base game and it's like it's own game...but it's also exactly like the original game but with this big addition to it...but it's not DLC or an update...???...

So yeah...I still don't really get it.

...So is it like...
Ok, so Maplestory for example. That's a free to play MMO and after maybe a few years, they have this MAJOR update where like the whole game changes and this new story or class was added and it's all like "WAOH! EVERYTHING'S CHANGED! LOOK AT ALL THIS NEW STUFF!" but all the original stuff is still mostly there aside from a few changes to promote the new stuff.
So...is it like that but you have to pay for it?
But then also, a while later after the big update, everything goes back to normal but all that new stuff is still just a part of the game now.
So like...do I just have to wait a long while after for it to just become a part of the original game?
Because like in World of Warcraft there's this Panda race you can choose but he was part of this whole new Pandora or whatever thing that you had to pay for but now he's just there as part of the normal game.

Money. Money is the key to your answer you seek!
Na but think like this, they don't just update the game/ put more into it, the reshape the world, bring new lore and other awesome stories into it, while removing old content from the game, making it a game you want to progress and keep up with to not ...

Well if they want to add new stuff so players don't get bored why don't they just update the main game with more content?
Like in Elder Scrolls Online's case. There's still a LOT more of Tamriel that they need to add so why not work on doing that instead of this extra game stuff?
Do what Maplestory do...

And as I said reason for why they do it this way. Money.

But what about my other question?
Will it eventually become part of the base game?
Because like I said, that panda is a race you can choose in World of Warcraft but from what I remember, that was originally part of this Pandora thing that you had to buy. But now it's just in the main game.
So will ESO:...

World of WarCraft never really had sequels. Literally, every new iteration of World of WarCraft has been an expansion of the existing game, for better or worse.

In a certain sense, the game is itself a sequel to the WarCraft RTS series. Well, I guess technically it's a spinoff, but it unambiguously t...
