We've known for a long, long time with absolute certainty that it was a new IP. They've been saying it for a while.Quote fromGamespot has just posted an article about Blizzard's next MMO and how Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick says it will have a broader appeal than their previous titles. Here's what was said in the article:
So for those of you who were hoping for a World of Diablo / World of Starcraft type game, I wouldn't really count on it. I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't mind seeing Blizzard coming out with a new IP. Either that or World of Lost Vikings.
The news here is the 'broader appeal.' A lot of us were hoping that since they don't want to cannibalize WoW subscribers, that perhaps it would be a more intricate, serious, progressive game. Not so, apparently. It will be even worse than WoW. Awesome, huh?
