I am more that sure that the next-gen MMO is gonna be WoW2. Furthermore, i am more than sure that they gonna use the starcraft 2/diablo 3 engine which has everything that WoW lacks now: shadows, dynamic lights, havoc physics, etc...A reworked Azeroth, Outland and anything else that is gonna come out before WoW2 is gonna sell like crazy. Add more polygons to characters, better facial animations, make damage that u take viewable on armor, like scratches etc... Make the water look like water, add realistic grass and make stranglethorn vale look more or less like crysis.Im not saying they should make it just like that, we can all use our imagination and come up with something and anyway Blizzard will do a million times better.What im saying that they will need to keep up with all the next-gen stuff thats coming or already came out, like age of connan. And one day it will just sneak up on us like Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 did.

Look at all the other games made by Blizzard, so far they do not care about pretty graphics, they wanna make their games fun.

Well Warcraft 3 was released in 2002 and WoW 2 years after that and i think that the graphics were more that ok for an RTS and a MMO back then.Starcraft 2 looks great same goes for Diablo 3. Yes, Blizzard doesnt push the graphical boundaries, but the graphics are up to date i would say.

"Furthermore, i am more than sure that they gonna use the starcraft 2/diablo 3 engine which has everything that WoW lacks now: shadows, dynamic lights, havoc physics, etc..."Look through the "Wrath" posts from the last few days. You'll find that the graphics engine has been dramatically improved, allowing for things like dynamic lighting and improved shadow textures.http://www.wowinsider.com/2008/07/21/my-shadow-is-following-me/
