News: And it's not a World of Warcraft expansion.
Yesterday, Blizzard posted two new job openings on their website (Lead 3D Environment Artist and a Lead 3D Character Artist) that will work on a "Next-Gen MMO."
Speculation ran wild (More help for Wrath of the Lich King? A third WoW expansion? World of Starcraft? Something else entirely?) until a Blizzard employee who goes by the handle "Drysc" posted a response on the official WoW forums after users assumed it was just more help for Wrath of the Lich King:
WoW Forum User: Could just be additional manpower for Wrath.
Drysc:No, it is an unannounced Next-Gen MMO.
And that doesn't mean an expansion for World of Warcraft either.
So there you have it. Blizzard has begun work on a completely new MMO. But now the new speculation begins over what it actually is. Could Blizzard be working on World of Warcraft 2? We'll let you know as we learn more.
