MMO-Champion - Blizzard Registers Project Blackstone Domain
Blizzard Registers Project Blackstone Domain
Fusible noticed that ProjectBlackstone.com was recently purchased by Blizzard Entertainment. It doesn't mean much yet but the choice of domain name could point to a side project for Diablo 3 or even pet battles (They also appear to have purchased WarcraftBattles.com last month).

We're mostly reporting this to have a nice point of discussion for it, but nothing really points to it being a major project (= probably not anything Titan related).

    I'm from the future, and I can tell you this is part of Blizzard's plan to create a franchise of games and media around Sir William Blackstone, who was an English jurist, judge and Tory politician of the eighteenth century. It's going to take video gaming by storm.

    Not sure what it could be, but I am already excited.

    Just to add to the speculation, warcraft battles, what on earth could that be (warcraft 3)

    If it is an expansion then it seems strange to call it project. Blackstone makes me think D3. Wasn't Titan referred to as project titan? Why rename it project blackstone. Also it's a domain name. I doubt any of the blackthorne sequel speculation is true either. I don't really know what to say about this one.

    It's blizzard's new pr0nz site.
    All the WoW/SC/Diablo pr0nz will be on one site, and this is it.

    The linked article stated that warcraftbattles was owned by an individual from Mass. from 2007-2009, and speculate Blizzard just bought it as a defense tactic of their IP name.

    Project Blackstone could literally be anything at this point.

    Its always fun to watch the speculation when ever they register a new domain or something like that

    But its a weird domain to begin with like, project blackstone will not be the name of d3 expansion, it just wouldnt make sense, maybe it would be something related to Diablo or at least the story, but as for an expansion name its pretty terrible..

    Diablo 3 expansion, almost certainly.

    Since we're free to say anything about it...
    It's Blizzards own Kickstarter project after they saw how well Project Eternity succeeded.
