What do you think it'll be? A true RTS sequel to the original? A queen of MMO's to stand aside WoW, the current king? A different genre altogether?

Let the speculation begin!

They're going through the games one by one until they reach the question mark.

I sure hope it's Starcraft II.

But from their job listings it's most likely another MMO, they've been hiring quite a lot of leads who specialise in MMOs.

I hope it's Starcraft II as well. I'm really excited to see what it is! Please let it not be an MMO, they already have WoW...

I do feel like it's not gonna be a Warcraft 4 or a expansion.
But Diablo and Starcraft might have good chances, hack and slay's like Diablo are quite big now. And Starcraft 2 would sure have a big community after a few days tongue.gif (or hours?). I just DONT hope its something for WoW..

I thought it was going to be Starcraft II (I definitely don't think it would be an MMO) but lately I've been giving a new Diablo some thought, and it seems like it would be just as good a move. Really I'm just anxious to see what it is since nothing can be considered a definite.

I love it when they continue the franchise of their games.

I'm putting my money on a Starcraft sequel. They're making the announcement in Korea, which is the mecca of all things Starcraft, at an RTS tournament no less.

It was never released. Ghost was Blizzard's 2nd vaporware project, after Warcraft: Lord of the Clans; which was supposed to be an adventure game chronicling Thrall's escape from Human captivity and his ascent as Warchief of the new Horde.

yesterday it was a line quoted from Diablo , by Kane.

i sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much hope its DIABLO 3

Dont think Blizzard shud launch a sequel to a title...just coz it DOESNT have a sequel, they should rather take out a 2nd sequel for the title that has more popularity.

Popularity wise.... Diablo series still owns Starcraft.....hands down.

and if my calculations are correct....the new title would be unveiled in 4 days !!!

Diablo owns Starcraft popularity wise? That statement is obviously based on personal preference rather than facts. Starcraft's following around the world is gigantic widely regarded as one of the best multiplayer games ever made it's serious business to alot of people.

Both Starcraft, and Diablo have a huge fan base, and even more so they both tend to have the majority of their fans engrossed in another Blzzard game at this time. No matter what move Blizzard makes right now will be the right move, they've got all the cards stacked in their favor and are just now waiting to make their move.

______________________


No calculation needed the game SHOULD be announced May 19th, since that was the date given out by most gaming sources before the timeline was even put up. The time line just supports that claim even.

Diablo and Diablo 2, both were primarilly launched as a single player RPG.

Starcraft had enuff customization capability to make it one of the most popular multiplayer game. Diablo series lacked that. <yeah that reminds me of the COW mode> a Diablo 3 which exploits the Mutliplayer features Blizzard so strongly dominates now, will definately be a mega boon.
And if its a Diablo 3 ..... like Oblivion's comeback, all hell loose !!

Regardless of what it is we can definitely expect alot from this. Blizzard used to be more of a cult company which was well respected among those "in the know" when it came to games. Since then Blizzard has become a widely known company and definitely worked it's way into the spotlight where as whenever a Blizzard game has it's release announced  in the past the coverage from game sources was usually limited to small segments that weren't "cover story" so to say. I think we can expect this next game to have the press riding on Blizzard's ass to get info on it.

Things look good for the future of fans of Blizz games regardless of Blizz losing the developers that helped it in the past.

SC2 or something of an SC version of WoW... Galaxies of Starcraft?

That would be the only two things that would make me happy. I hate diablo and WoW has already had all the attention it deserves.

Now let's just hope they don't f'up SC2, if it is indeed SC2.

Here's the real question will Jim Raynor make Kerrigan pay for her betrayal?

He said he would, and Raynor doesn't fuck around.

Like hell he doesn't.

I swear, if we get a long cutscene of Raynor trying to redeem Kerrigan instead going all Yamato Cannon on her behind the first chance he gets, I'm going to write a strongly worded letter to Blizzard. VERY STRONGLY WORDED.

By the way, i've gotten onto the Korean Blizzard site (i'm Korean) and they have the same timeline as that one in flash player, and i've seen this really weird one in the 2007 spot, any ideas what it could be?

wwi.blizzard.co.kr/

(yes, it's "wwi" not "www")

Ignore the korean text and you'll be fine np.
