Blizzard Community Rep Confirms an “Unannounced Next-Gen MMO”

It probably shouldn’t surprise you too much to find out that Blizzard is working on another MMO. But if you think it’s another World of Warcraft game of any sort, you’re wrong. In response to a thread on the official World of Warcraft forums regarding a fairly old job posting on Blizzard’s website, “Drysc” stated that the posting is separate from the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, and that it doesn’t have anything to do with WoW.

Of course, this isn’t the most official ways to confirm that something is in the works, but it’s not particularly far-fetched to guess that a Starcraft or Diablo MMO might be in the works. Either way, it’s a megaton waiting to happen.
And if it does turn out to be Diablo, I expect to turn into Cartman, leaving my desk only to find Ben-gay.

It probably isn’t tied to any particular franchise at this point. Telling from the job postings it appears they are just in the researching stages on developing a new engine.

I’d like to see a Lost Vikings MMO, just for variety’s sake.

I think Kareem is on the money here. Odds are that if Blizzard, a company notorious for their ‘release it when we’re done’ stance, is working on the concept for a new MMO, it could be 3 or 4 years off at this point.

Why would they make a Diablo MMO? It already has online multiplayer.
