No World of Warcraft 2 yet
Mike Morhaime has said that Blizzard's next-gen MMO will not be a WoW sequel. Speaking to Wired, the Blizzard CEO stated: "Let’s just say it’s going to be different and it’s not going to be a sequel to World of Warcraft."
Morhaime continued: "We’re not trying to replace World of Warcraft with this new MMO. We’re trying to create a different massively multiplayer experience, and hopefully World of Warcraft will still be going strong when that one is released."
He also hinted that avenues were being explored to take MMO gaming more into the realms of mobile technology:
"Whether you’re in-game, whether you're out of game, whether you're at home, whether you're on the road. I think that, for us -- that’s probably the first area that we would take advantage of mobile devices like the iPhone."
It remains to be seen whether the next Blizzard MMO will allow users to connect to the community with mobile devices.
Despite the secrecy of the new title, WoW lead designer Jeffrey Kaplan has already confirmed to MTV that he is “definitely involved” in the project.
