Blizzard is fond of pointing out that World of Warcraft has a subscriber population larger than that of several major nations. With word leaking that Blizzard is now assembling yet another development team, pretty soon the Blizzard campus may soon be rivaling Azeroth in terms of population.

A job listing on Blizzard's website has been revealed to be a brand new fifth project for the developer/publisher. Blizz already has teams working on Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 (all three versions of it), the next WoW expansion, and a still mysterious new MMO. This is a new project, although nothing is known about it. But it's a Blizzard product, so you can bet on three things: it will probably be very good, it will sell a ton, and we probably won't see it for a very, very long time.

Well probably not but it would be cool to me.

Cool to me as well.

The best thing to come from WoW, for me as someone who doesn't like it, is that it's provided Blizzard with tons of money to use for new projects. I hope whatever these new games are are up to their usual standard.

Fixed that (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warcraft_Adventures) for you (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starcraft_Ghost). ;)

New IP as awesome as all their current stuff.

I'd love to see some of the suggestions above such as two teams on SCII or Ghost, but I'd like Blizz to kick out a new IP soon. They can only rotate old IPs so long.

Well...it's worked for fourteen years (since Warcraft 2).

Or 80 years.... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Mouse)

I could have went for the obvious Mario IP reference, but let's go back to the originals.

Micky is a mascot more than a franchise being used up. I mean wasn't Fantasia the last thing Disney used him in. Oh, and the Kingdom Hearts games.

They should just do World of Blizzard. Just turn all their properties into one giant metagame.

Looking for port to Terran Mill... no, not in Hillsbrad. The one with the Siege Tanks.

Whatever it is, I hope it's colourful and maybe even cel-shaded.

Why would Blizzard create another MMO to compete with their current "next-gen" MMO :p

I'm thinking console. 360/PS3

I would sell my soul to see Blizzard develop a Planetside-esque game (maybe World of Starcraft could be that game).
If that ever happens, I will be incredibly happy.
Not quite "Diablo 3 confirmed" happy, but still pretty damn happy.
