A Blizzard community manager has commented regarding the unannounced MMO in the works at Blizzard.The, spotted over on our network site , went up on the World of Warcraft forums just over an hour ago.Blizzard community manager Zarhym responded to a comment which read, in part, “People are saying that there is another MMO in the works at Blizzard. Seriously, if there was, they would be advertising already.”Zarhym was quick to shoot this line of thought down. “Games take years to develop from concept to release,” he said. “Diablo III was in the works for years before being announced. Starcraft II was announced two years ago and isn’t even in Beta yet.””We have nothing to advertise for the new MMO because it’s a shell of a game thus far. We’ve already stated it’ll be a brand new franchise, which means the lore, art, and game play are being developed entirely from scratch. It’s an overwhelming process, but a process through which we excel. Our track record supports this.”In short: a new MMO is indeed in the works, with an entirely new IP, but don’t expect to see it on shelves for years.
