Hey - they remembered to paint in Kezan next to the Maelstrom! A hint for the NEXT expansion AFTER WotLK?...No, OK, probably not.

BUT, if that were to be the Azeroth in the Warcraft universe,wouldn't Draenor(or Outland, whatever) be nearby?

This is all from memory, so trust it as much as you like, but originally Warcraft was based on the Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy game. If you do deep enough research into the Warhammer Fantasy line, you find that both Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 are in the same universe.Add in the fact that Warhammer 40,000's various races have a lot of analogues in Starcraft, and I think you've got a pretty good chance that Blizzard would at least jokingly make references to crossovers between War- and Starcraft.Plus, didn't one of the main worldbuilders for Games Workshop defect to Blizzard a while back?

Whether a game designer for 40K went to Blizzard:Andy Chambers left Games Workshop about when they decided to ruin the game. He was doing his own stuff for a while then got a game designer job at Blizzard.
