Blizz fans rejoice: the good news doesn’t stop at Diablo 3. At Blizzard’s Worldwide Invitational event in Paris, VP Rob Pardo confirmed that "there is still one unknown project". He has also confirmed that the several job listings referencing an "unannounced next-gen MMO" did not refer to Diablo 3. So, what exactly is it?
Current speculation points to an oft-rumored Starcraft MMO, though it’s equally possible that Blizzard is, for the first time since the original Starcraft hit shelves in 1998, creating a brand-new franchise. Paul Sams, Blizz’s Chief Operating Officer, said in an interview with Gamasutra that "The idea of a new franchise is very intriguing to employees of the company. Are we ever going to release a new one? I would absolutely say we will at some point. I just don’t know when that day will be quite yet." Wether or not he is hinting at a new franchise from Blizzard isn’t known just yet, but that might just be what he’s doing.
As for a release date for Wrath of the Lich King, Starcraft 2, or Diablo 3… Well, come on. This is Blizzard we’re talking about.
