Blizzard's next MMO to be Original IP

[singlepic id=887 w=580 h=348 float=center]

Ever since World of Warcraft hit the markets, the gaming community has been speculating upon the subject matter behind Blizzard’s next big MMO. Whatever it is, it will certainly make a big splash – that’s just the nature of the beast. With Activision head Bobby Kotick’s latest interview on the subject, we can now be sure that we will not be seeing World of Warcraft 2.0:

“And remember, we have two enormous investments: one in Bungie and the other in another project at Blizzard that we haven’t given a lot of visibility to. Those are going to be entirely new intellectual properties.”

Like the Blizzard we’ve come to know and love, Kotick stresses that the team assembled for the project will take ample amounts of time, talent, and capital to assure the game’s realization. Activision Blizzard surely has all of those components, and it is only a matter of time before we start to see the pieces come together. Though it has not been announced yet, we assume the game is in a very early development stage, if not a preliminary one.

  1. Hrm… I wonder why there’s a quest in Cataclysm Beta named “Call of Duty”, surely it can’t be that they just made quests for every IP Activision owns… maybe there’s something more?
