Yes, WoW isn't going to be "killed" this year. Frankly, WoW probably will never BE killed, when EverQuest 2 still has something of a following. There are a few on the horizon, however, that may very well make Blizz sweat a little. Most notable is Champions Online. Not only does it have a sizable fan base from the pen and paper game (much like WoW's following from the RTS games), but it's also in the hands of a capable developer in Cryptic that has experience from City of Heroes/Villains. On top of that, being on the Xbox 360 would give them a much larger install base immediately- like how WoW gives Mac users (like myself) a viable game choice. If Microsoft cuts a deal so Xbox Live subscribers don't have to pay an extra fee to play, then the buzz would probably lead most (if not all) 360 owners to at least give it a try. If it turns out to be good- which I think it will be- then WoW may very well have a problem.
