I find it exceedingly hard to believe that Blizzard would be doing any sort of brand spanking new MMO in the near future. WoW's subscription base right now is what, 8 million? They have around 50% of the MMORPG market. Introducing a new a MMO anytime in the next couple of years is going to do one thing--erode the subcription base of WoW. Especially if its World of Starcraft, or Diablo for that matter. Blizzard won't see many *new* subscriptions, they'll just see people drop WoW for the new game they release. From an economic standpoint, they'd be spending millions to develop a new game when they could spend less and keep rolling out expansions for WoW.Of course, this being Blizzard, they're probably hiring now with a target release date of 2010 or something, so by then WoW will have faded (maybe).
