CVG is reporting
that Blizzard's big announcement at the Korean World Wide Invitational (WWI
) May 19 is an MMO based on Starcraft
. Either CVG has the best inside Blizzard source ever, or some writer at CVG is begging for a pink slip reporting this as fact. CVG says, "The unveiling of the new installment [of Starcraft 2
] has previously been rumoured for the South Korea event, though we now know that the title is in fact
(emphasis ours) an online spin-off and not a new RTS game as previously assumed."
Despite saying the information is straight-up-fact, we can't help but be in shock and awe of the information. If true, it would open up a Pandora's Box of questions. How far is this MMO along? Will Blizzard really unleash another MMO to compete against their already insane mega-hit World of Warcraft
, which sits comfortably perched atop the MMO ladder with 8.5 million subscribers? Starcraft 2,
as an RTS, being announced at the Korean event would have made perfect sense
, but this "fact" based information that CVG received seems to blow that out of the water.
