    MMO's are all about profitability over the long haul. THey cost alot to make, but profits rise years later when adding to the game is a fraction of the cost that would go into remaking it from scratch. There may never be a WoW 2.

    The idea would not be to remake WoW with better graphics. In that case yes, you would need to spend a lot of time and effort and it probably wouldn't be worth it.

    The goal would be to create an all new game experience set within the WoW universe, ideally one that people would play in addition to continuing to play the original WoW.

    They would have to go into the future, maybe 200 or so years and begin a new story. If "WoW 2" as you put it was announced it would have to be really different from the current timeline otherwise what would be the point of making it, just do a engine revamp of the current game if you want new stuff.

    To put it simply - a brand new focus and story

    WoW 2 would also take place many years after the current WoW.

    That time would be when azeroth has finally become a peaceful place for the races to live in. Plaguelands have been cleansed and only thing that rages is the conflict between horde and alliance.
    But the real thing in WoW 2 would be the fact that Burning Legion has returned, and their leader Sargeras has acquired a physical form and soughts to enter the world and to destroy it.... simple but works, because the burning legion is endless. This time however the legion is far more powerful since sargeras himself comes around....
    Azeroth wouldnt be alone because the rest of the titans have returned, or some of them...and delightful of how azeroth has survived, they let it live and have to deal with sargeras.
    Also the next wow would once again bring the old gods back, atleast those who still live. But this time the aspects are not there to protect mortals. (because in dragon soul they said age of mortals has begun and their aspect essence has been diminished or something)

    The titans would play bigger role in this game.
    As in current wow we havent even seen one yet.

    You cant just add a brand new story and focus into wow...when there are so many things left in the universe unchallenged.
    Creating a new story would be stupid considering that there are things in the world that cannot die.
    Like old gods, else why would they have been imprisoned instead of slain?

    I wouldn't say never it is perfectly plausible that Blizzard may return in the future to Warcraft after they have finished with World of Warcraft in a another 5-10 years

    Wow 2 would be out after 1 -3 new strategy games with wow and as said eventually be with the titans. Would imagine its alike to wow thought - besides change in scenery. Not a whole lot that can be changed in this world and be 100% new.

    The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
    You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
