If you actually read the article and where it links to you would have realised it was a Wall Street (that big US stockmarket thingy) presentation so yeah it's in the works

Blizzard wrote:Vivendi Universal Games gave a presentation to Wall Street today. Too much to report on everything said, but the big one was:

"All Blizzard franchises will become MMOGs."

I think so, even before WoW release, fans asked what happened to Startcraft and Diablo and what of the other blizzard devs that developed them.

Blizzard said they are working on a secret project, this might be it! but ... managin 3 MMO, LOL @ Blizz. They cant even handle WoW right yet, this worries me ...



Battle Crusier operational.

My guess would be that both games are either still in concept or early development (maybe up to a year in I guess). I'm also going to assume they'll stagger the release so that they dont hit the market at the same time. You'll know when they're serious about them as they'll probably be a big hiring spree or new office openings.

Other cool things to think about:
Starcraft might be a MMORTS
Alternate subscription methods e.g. item sales for Diablo
Uber subscriber package, get all three games for the price of 2 or something.
Lost Vikings Online? (oh how I wish :P)

Subject: Re: Blizz, is this true?
I believe this was a misquote. We haven't announced any specific development plans beyond the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, and we don't have any intentions to focus on only one genre or platform with our future games.

This makes me sad in the pants.

I still believe we will see a Diablo MMORPG in 07/08 though.
