Expect (At Least) Six Blizzard Titles in the Next Three YearsPosted 9 Sep 2011 by
That’s the word from Activision/Blizzard COO Thomas Tippl from the Citi 2011 Tech Conference. This total includes two Starcraft 2 expansions, two World of Warcraft expansions, and Diablo III plus its first expansion. That roster does not include Project Titan, Blizzard’s still secret/unrevealed next-gen MMORPG. A quote from Gamespot’s coverage:
While Blizzard has not indicated any expansion pack plans beyond WOW’s Cataclysm, it has been more forthright with its Starcraft II plans. The game’s second installment, Heart of the Swarm, focuses on the Zerg faction, and Battle.net project director Greg Canessa indicated it will be available in mid-2012. The series will conclude with Legacy of the Void, which focuses on the Protoss camp.
The remaining two releases pertain to Diablo III. While Blizzard maintains that it hopes to release Diablo III in 2011, Tippl said that the game has not been factored into its earnings report expectations for the calendar year. Tippl also expects that a Diablo III expansion will be available before the end of 2014.
You might also remember the leaked product schedule from early last year, which projected SC2 and D3 expansions every 18 months. The first SC2 expansion is going to take more like 24 months, so it’s probably wise to expect the wait for D3X to be at least that long; though it’ll be less than 3 years, apparently.
