Blizzard Working On New Game: 'World of Warcraft' Follow-Up?

Job Board Listings Reveal New Blizzard MMO
Postings on the job boards for Blizzard, the company behind 'Warcraft' and 'Diablo,' have given away a little secret. The boys at Blizzard are working on a next-generation Massively Multiplayer Online game (MMO). Blizzard did confirm that it was working on an unannounced MMO, but would not divulge any further details. Of course, this leaves all of us to speculate what the game will be.

Message board posts all assume the game will be based on preexisting universes. Will it be 'Diablo', 'Starcraft'?, or lesser-known titles like 'Blackthorne' and 'Lost Vikings'?

Our take -- it'll either be 'Diablo' or, even more likely an update of 'World of Warcraft' which has been a gargantuan money-maker for the developer. 'Starcraft' isn't likely since 'Starcraft 2' is already under development. We figure 'WoW' is about due for an update as it is beginning to show its age at 3 years (an eternity in the gaming world).

But Blizzard surely doesn't want to see the incredibly successful 'Diablo' franchise fade into the history books. What do you expect to see? A 'Diablo' online game? A new 'WoW'? Or perhaps something completely different.
