World of Warcraft isn't going anywhere. Blizzard may be working on another massively multiplayer online game, but it's not intended to replace its bread-and-butter. The studio has confirmed it's working on another online endeavor while keeping specifics about it under wraps. Activision CEO Bobby Kotick shined a little more light on it during a Deutsche Bank Securities Technology Conference talk that GameSpot was listening on.
Kotick described Blizzard's other MMO as a game that will have "a little more broad appeal," suggesting it won't be set in the orcs 'n elves fantasy world that dominates MMO games.
At PAX, former-1UP-editor-turned-Ignition Entertainment business developer Shane Bettenhausen teased that Blizzard's MMO was set in the present. Maybe he's right.
