World of Starcraft?takes place after the current end of the Starcraft saga (after the conclusion of Legacy of the Void). Most likely MANY years after it, but who knows...Some remote location where the experiments on Zerg / Protoss specimens by Terran scientists have been going on undisturbed for ages, and now all hell is ready to break loose...Most likely, the above is just my overactive imagination laced with an unhealthy dose of Wishful Thinking .
a mmo-fps, I can see it happen.
But it's a cool SC2 expac marketing.
Orc Shaman <3 - Pandaren Monk - Orc Warlock - Pandaren Warrior - Orc Hunter - Blood Elf Demon HunterFrostwolf clan is best clan!
I want to roll a druid... still thinking about it since feral is 4 fite
There's no way, in my opinion, they would release a Starcraft MMO while SC2 is active. This is just to hype up HotS.
Seems entirely plausible that this is just a launch site for HotS, considering that the Zerg have probably been pushed back to the brink since there will be factions of them with new queens. Kerrigan apparently is going to try and retake control over the whole Zerg even as a human.Esteemed Colleagues:
Your digital correspondence is now locked down. Please run further communication through the approved private channels, and limit your messages to topics of pertinent research and findings. Upon further consideration, I have decided to cancel this evening's soiree so that we can get right to work.
We have been able to acquire several specimens of larval zerg for our first procedure. I had hoped to present them with some surprise and fanfare at the barbecue by delivering them in a serving bowl at the center table; that is the sort of humor and friendly levity that I had wished to engender in our team. But now that opportunity has been soured by this unfortunate display of ill spirits by Dr. Ayers. I ask you all to consider how quickly one negative comment can ruin things for everybody.
Well, what's done is done. Our xenospecialists will find the larvae sterilized and prepared for dissection in Biolab 2. Previous studies have uncovered some surprising similarities between the zerg larva's pluripotent cellular structures and our own embryonic stem cells. We are interested in finding a means to both arrest the obligatory asymmetric replication (the astounding healing factor) of the zerg, and adapt it (in some measure) for our Dominion soldiers. I would invite other members of the research staff to observe the dissection and participate in any post-mortem discussions regarding analysis and possible weaponization of what we uncover.
Also, apparently the site is linked to several twitter accounts that give some more info.

Here's the linked Twitter accounts (taken from Reddit source):

It's just a viral marketing campaign. I mean a very, very cool marketing campaign, but if you think it's an announcement for a new IP or MMO you're just getting your hopes up for nothing. Just follow the twitter accounts if you want to see the story unfold.
Same thing for Promethius the movie.
It is a "typical" marketing campaign, there are some companies specializing in that, blizz likes this kind of compagins, so, enjoy it, it is about SC2 expansion.
The login screen flahes for a second, and then the screen turns black for me =(
It's probably the best marketing I've ever seen. Killing real people with aliens.
I'm totally kidding, sucks you can't access it. Keep trying!
I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard is actually shitting themselves over TES.
