    Assuming we get to another two expansions, I'm throwing my naming in the hat: Using the shorter model (Cataclysm), next is "Emerald Nightmare" then "Sargeras Reborn". Using the prolific title, we'll have "Curse of the Emerald Nightmare" and "Sargeras and the Burning Legion". Either way after those two we're getting "The Fallen Hero, The Final March" and returning to Northrend to deal with the now corrupt Fordragon. Then we see Warcraft IV.

    It wouldn't surprise me if it is a true Blizzard document. However, that also does not mean that it's cut in stone and a guarantee. That may well be what Blizzard has roughly estimated as their plan for the future, and any company such as Blizzard will try and roughly chart their future and try to not have too many conflicts as to when their products are coming out. However, as with anything, all of this is subject too change.

    I like to use the "WoW plan" map thing that has been thrown around for years. Yeah it's been around and some like to try and quote it as gospel, some say it's fake. I usually fall into the catagory that I'm sure Blizzard made a plan a long time ago as to how they'd like their expansions to come out. And with all the hype that Warcraft has, all the history, Blizzard would need to have a rough plan for the future. But that does not mean that they cannot change the plan to satisfy a their player bases.

    It could very well mean that the next expansion is planned for 1.5years from now and gets released 2 years from now. Add that considering we had ICC about 6 months too long, maybe they are pushing up their expansion dates up faster so people won't get as bored as they have been with this one.

    I won't play a FPS mmo. Don't really care for first person shooters. Played them some in early 2000s. If it's a scifi mmo won't play that either. Scifi mmo's tend to not do as well as fantasy mmo's anyway.

    Since wow is fantasy based drawing in 12mil. They'll probably stick with fantasy since that's what works.

    what worries me though is that someone allready made a post that bungie + blizzard would work on titan.. which would mean it to be a console title?
    Considering the two just signed a 10 year deal with bungie making the game and activisionblizz publishing. Bungie will still own the IP though, and seeing as microsoft still has a stake in Bungie it could get really interesting. Let's say they do make this game, and activisionblizz put it out their as their next big mmo. At the end of that contract Bungie then has the game. So I don't know how that would work out for them.

    Either way there are going to be some bigger issues at hand, like crossing that console pc market. Holy crap microsoft is going to get rich off those two companies (if they weren't enough already).

    I personally don't see the bungie/activisionblizz title going console. That creates so many problems, and it creates lots of licensing issues also. There have been games that have done it, but there is a reason you don't see that many that pull it off.

    Halo, quite obviously, isn't new IP.
    Plus you know Microsoft owns the Halo IP. They have their own game publishing studios etc. Bungies last official Halo was reach, but they have even said if Microsoft wants to make more there is nothing they can do about it. They just won't be the ones making it. Having played every single Halo game I will certainly try out any new ones. I think Microsoft has done a damn fine job on the publishing part, and the technology part.

    The same Bungie that signed a 10 year publishing deal with Activision earlier this year for all future Halo games? The same Activision that merged with Blizzard? And the fact that the Halo MMO that was being developed by Ensemble Studios, then cancelled due to "company politics," until THE SAME DAMN MONTH (April 2010) THAT BUNGIE SIGNED WITH ACTIVISION was called, get this, Titan?
    No they did not sign a deal with Activision for all future halo games. That would be impossible for them to do anyway. The reason Halo poped up so much in that article is they wanted to say "HEY WE GOT THE GUYS WHO MADE HALO!!!!", not because they are doing anything with Halo. Ask yourself why did Microsoft let them go so freely? Anyway the Halo MMO wasn't ever officially announced by microsoft, at least to my recollection.

    Sargeras will be fightable in "normal"- "heroic"- and "God"-mode, I'm 99% sure about this.

    I wonder if they'll buff warriors or something ... Protection needs a new skill.

    The product slate is very, very interesting. But I am wondering if it is real or not? It can be. It can not be. They list WoW Brazil which I'd say would be a major target. But, things released earlier this year are listed as well. Why isn't Latin America listed? I would've thought that would've been a major internal release.

    The hotfixes are interesting. I'm glad that Uther's Blessing got fixed! A lot of high levels whispered my little shaman when I was running about the Western Plaguelands the high levels wanted to know why the quest worked for me and not for them.

    Oh, and hello there! I decided to finally join these forums.

    A MMOFPS makes a lot of sense actually seeing as how there isn't actually any big ones out there that are new and current. Also rather than take away from the WoW audience, they can tap in to the COD/Halo/Borderlands audience and keep two big scale MMO's running at the same time. It makes a lot of sense, although probably isn't what WoW fans hoping to move to the new MMO were wanting.

    Also re: Gamon. They should buff him in every patch just for fun

    I just wanna know where does wow go from here. The shattering is happening, and old foes are being brought back. But whats the next step? Sargeras?

    I lolled, I don't believe anything about that graph, we see when we see it

    Also 1-60 instances are epic, hope it stays like that

    Geri0n, good question sometimes I wonder about the same . Mostly those 4 tree gates wich probably lead to the emerald dream make me think when will they do something with that I mean its there since the release day or what.
    Long ago I read somewhere when ppl were asking things about wow and key ppl answered . Questions like what if you run out of ideas with this world , theny they just said we are aware of that but then we just open a new dark portal forexample to the natrezim homeworld or to argus if it still exists . But still if they wana end it ever good it must end with Sargeras , but to defeat a dark titan hmmm not sure we need to be goodly in a way or require some special weaponry to be able to , we shall see ^^

    Have you ever tried other companies' customer service? Blizzard's CS is actually very very good compared to others. Especially considering they have a whole lot more customers than most of the competition in the gaming industry.

    I actually am betting Phoenix is a current code name for the Protoss expansion. A pheonix is a protoss unit.

    Is this release schedule really news? Most of us who have watched Blizzard have already estimated those time frames.

    My bet is that this is just somebody taking long term guesses and tabulating it to show it online and troll the Community.

    If it is real, it doesn't change anything.

    I want Diablo 3 to be released as soon as it's done. My first characters will be Barbarian and Sorceress. My secondary character will be that Demon Hunter. I don't like the Witch Doctor, looks gay. The monk was the replacement for the noble Paladin? I didn't like that. -sigh-

    One thing is missing on the chart. Warcraft 4... Or did WoW kill that?

See, even in that scenario, it's impossible for that hypothetical person to even imagine not liking the, basically, one time extra boost that instance quests give.

    But no. Thanks Blizz. I understand wanting to force people to view as much as your crappy new water effects by leveling as slowly as possible and having no survivability whatsoever, but can you give us a break? Maybe a 12% break?
    And that is where you are wrong. I actually started a low level toon because I wanted to see the new quests. I thought I would do some dungeons to see the changes. I would run three dungeons and already be WAY overlevelled for where I currently was in the quest zones.

    Not everyone plays to level up as quickly as possible. The leveling in dungeons was absurdly fast.

    Starcraft 2 killed that. You can look for WC4 a few years after the second expansion for SC2, so... 5 years from now?
