Hmm, interested to find out what it could be. Too bad I won't be playing it. I will avoid it like I do WoW because there is just not enough free time to get in and enjoy it.

Didn't we already know this?  I'm pretty sure that they said this before at some point, yet people continued to speculate at a possible World of Warcraft sequel or a Starcraft-themed MMO.

I'm hoping they take it to a science fiction setting. I highly doubt they will do fantasy again, or maybe a different type that is considerably different than WoW. Hopeful though that they take it to space!

I agree completely.  An original IP set in space with Blizzard backing it would definitely get my attention.

WoW is too powerful for even the likes of Blizzard now!

I would certainly be interested to see a space-opera style game from Blizzard. My main hope is that whatever it is, that it would be different enough from WoW to not feel like that game with a new skin. Which kinda seems to be the directions MMO have run themselves into.

That said, if anyone who reinvent the wheel (again), Blizzard is the one to do it.

Damn I was hoping they'd pick up Warhammer 40,000

Now I'm kinda excited to see what this is all about, I hope they at least put a twist on the lore, like a viking sci-fi one or something :P
