Analysts, like gamers, are always interested in what's next. When Blizzard Entertainment president and co-founder Mike Morhaime outlined the plan for Blizzard in 2010 during Activision's quarterly financial results call today, he didn't mention the company's next MMO. Blizzard has publicly said it's working on an MMO not related to World of Warcraft, but has detailed little else.
Even when pressed by an analyst, Morhaime remained tight lipped on the next MMO.
"With respect to the product that we have in development," said Morahime, "which is an new massively multiplayer online game, we have not announced any details with respect to that game or the intellectual property associated with it other than to confirm that there is an unannounced MMO currently in development at Blizzard and that it is not a direct sequel to World of Warcraft."
Blizzard has reiterated several times this is not a replacement for World of Warcraft. Thoughts?
