    Lightbulb Blizzard Registers "Project Blackstone" Domaine

    As the title says, and here is the article - http://www.gamespot.com/news/blizzar...domain-6400836

    Thoughts?

    Most likely setting up for the Diablo 3 expansion or possibly the name for the D3 PvP patch.

    They wouldn't register a separate website for the D3 expansion, or a single patch. Anything to do with D3 would go on their already established D3 website, similarly to anything SC2 or WoW related.

    How curious. Definitely something to be keeping an eye on, at any rate. Thanks for passing on the info.

    PROJECT doesn't look as expansion. It's either the PvP patch, or the steampunk new MMO, known as Project Titan.

    More likely Titan than anything.

    Going by the name I would guess it is something Diablo related, on the other hand it's unusual for Blizzard to register any "project" for an expansion or patch. I guess time will tell. Thanks for sharing this!

    ...not when you attach the word "project" to it... that's decidedly very NON-Diablo 3.

    I'm actually thinking it might be a reinvention of their Blackthorn franchise.

    FYI - Blackthorn was a Steampunk/Cyberpunk style world. Just saying. :P

    Isn't it immature that you call him Donald "Dump"?
    I agree, it's childish and stupid - and that's my point. it's meant as a deliberate mockery of his blatant disrespect via using "Crooked Hillary", and thus I can call him "Dump" since he dumps his campaign promises, dumps campaign managers, dumps his wives, wants to dump the first amendment, dumps common-sense war ethics and dumps the use of proper English in favor of a mongrel white-trash dialect.

    It's just a rumor... people combined the FPS rumor and merged it with the recent Steampunk revival going on.

    Is the rumor based on the pictures of one of the artists who has a personal steampunk project?

    I get the feeling they will announce what it is next Blizzcon as there won't be any other new releases at that time for them that we've heard of.

    World of Warcraft is already steampunk (submarines, zeppelins, steam tanks, shredders, etc.), so the genre being "modern" is unlikely to have much effect on future Blizzard releases.
    Diplomacy is just war by other means.

    It's still just a rumor... and, as you say, that was his PERSONAL project. :P

    Except D3 expansion. There is no reason not to make one. And possibly revealing next WoW Expansion aswell.

    Yea.. I wouldn't count Titan being a personal project of a guy who joined Blizzard as late as 2009... :P

    If this ends up being Titan... then my theory that if MoP didn't do very well, they would push Titan up front to establish a new cash-cow to help suplement and announce it at this Blizzcon is coming true.
