Firstly, WoW still has a massive playerbase. That isn't going to disappear soon - and some players will persist for as long as the servers are active, just like they do on Ultima and Everquest. So in many ways, they don't have to worry about burnout that much.Secondly, I think Blizzard will need to change the way the game works to keep the majority interested - more casual content, more single player content, less repetitive content would all appeal to the wide audience. Just adding new raids every few months isn't enough, because at the end of the day, Raiders are a minority in the game. Something like LOTRO's books system where new zones and content are added every few months would be perfect for WoW. And probably the best solution for burnout - continual new content will bring players back the same as the expansions do.
