I heard rumors from game site said that Blizzard is making a new mmorpg, so it is more likely to be Diablo 3 or World of Starcraft?

No, I would lay money on D3. a non-pay to play game something like D2, their target audience will be all the D2 players who dont play WoW. after all a WoS would just compete with WoW, D3 would generate more money.

I think they are opting to license an existing non game product and make it an MMO, like Count Chocula's Chocolate Kingdom which will allow people to explore Count Chocula's kingdom and interact with other players, while defending the castle from the likes of Frankenberry, Yummy Mummy, and Boo Berry.

i dunno, WoS would be kinda cool, i mean sure it will compete with WoW players but as a WoW player i think it would be kinda nice to have that kind of change. I haven't played Starcraft at all (my brothers the big Starcraft fan) but from what I've seen it looks kinda nice.

they aren't going to make another MMO, ts nothing other than rumors. The simple reason is because it would split their player base between WoW and whatever other MMO they would make, bad business sense. No I expect WoW to do something similar to what everquest did, make a million expansions until the game died then release a new version.
There is no Starcraft MMO. It was a joke put out by someone who really didn't like WoW and was mocking Blizzard for so called "Selling Out." SC2 or D3 will be their next big game, but as far as MMO's go. They won't be making another.
- Edit: I got this from another forum I go to after reading through the old game section I found a topic from 2007 July 12th. Someone posted about it and said it would be cool. But a frequent WoW player shot him down because he frequents the blizzard site and said,
"it was an april fools joke by blizzard trying to bring
all the korean SC players hope that they can enjoy both
games they love so much.
It was made into a mod that some private servers use.
It was kinda neat but it ended up being the exact same
as wow, just more of a custom skin pack"
I almost worked for Blizzard a little while back, a couple years ago actually. Though I turned them down because the position wouldn't pay enough to get started in Irvine on my own so yeah. But anyways, I know quite a good number of people who work at Blizzard. There is no new MMORPG in the works though they have discussed the possibility of a new one. Though that wouldn't even be for like another five or so years.

Diablo 3 is in the making

Starcraft 2 is coming soon as well, but its RTS obviously.
Well Diablo 3 are in the works, but Blizzard always takes years perfecting their titles. Its been almost a year since SC was announced and the trailer have been out for more than 6 months, and theres no release date yet.

There are rumours that the diablo team wan't to make Diablo 3 but nothing is happening. As to Star craft it would never work it's not half way as popular as warcraft.
who knows... they might even start a new series :cute:

I would believe more that they would make a new series.
Maybe Starcraft 2 is coming out but look they canceled Starcraft ghost.
And imagine if WoW was not related to Warcraft the game just wouldn't have soled. The only reason people play it it's because it's Warcraft because for an mmorpg it got nothing special.

It would be nice if they made a new series and a new "storyline" I guess you could call it, but after some thinking about how it would sell with WoW already out, it doesn't make since to me. Like a lot of you have said it wouldn't be good for the people already playing WoW. Not just that, but also spending that much money on an online game would be too much and people just wouldn't want to do that. If the prices for the accounts are the same (and if your playing both WoW and WoS) it's about $24 a month continuing to play.
And (if i haven't already covered this) WoS would take away some of the WoWers; also not a good thing.
