    Hmm could've sworn I heard that they weren't making another one and that they were moving on to a new MMO. I can find the source about them making a new MMO but I can't find the no more expansions one.

    Yeah, they are making a new MMO in a new franchise, but it was said last BlizzCon that WoW still has some expansions to come in its lifespan.

    I got really, really hard to believe that they are going to stop milk money with repeating-expansions.

    Well, that they are making a new MMO has been known for a long time. But they wont stop with WoW becaus of that.

    Only Jeffrey Kaplann (Former Lead Designer) moved over to the other MMO team. So it doesn't really have any consequences for WoW.


    I really can't wait to see more info on Diablo 3.
    I want to see some more gameplay. In HD.

    If they're making a new MMO, it'll probably be StarCraft.

    It's a new universe, and should be a mature rated game since little kids flock to WoW.

    I'm continually stumped on why people seem to think WoW is dominated by little kids. I'm 19, and I'm one the the youngest people in my guild that isn't the kid of an older guild member. You rarely see people over 30 in games like TF2.

    Warcraft 4 announcement? I think so.

    One of the Blizzard guys mentioned Warcraft 4 in a recent interview, saying it would use the same release system as Starcraft 2.

    Meaning 200 bucks for all of the game. Lovely.

    We'll get a StarCraft II release date for sure. Don't think a Diablo III one.

    a release date is just an arbitrary time to get disappointed at when they push it back.

    Yeah, but if I get release dates for both, then I can have widgets on each of my monitors that give me a countdown to release.

    I'm pathetic.

    Why are they including WoW in BlizzCon now? They have nothing left to release.

    Even worse than millions of Korean people orgasming, now its BILLIONS OF CHINESE PEOPLE ORGASMING SHOUTING "DOTA!"

    Also if I at least get release dates, I can at least preorder.

    Anyone have any speculation on when SC2 (The first part of the trilogy,) will be released?

    I'm guessing they'll have to release by the end of 2010.
