Blizz quiet on WoW expansion

Won't talk about Lich King.

Blizzard has declined to comment on rumours that a new World of Warcraft expansion is on the way.

Said rumours emerged after German ratings website Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK) produced a listing for a demo apparently on show at the Leipzig Games Convention in late August.

The expansion is apparently called World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, and is filed in the "add-on" genre for PC.

Blizzard told us last year at the show it would produce a new expansion for its massively-enormous-multiplayer online game annually, starting with last January's launch of The Burning Crusade.

We can only speculate on what it could contain at this point, like another increase in level cap, maybe mounted content, bigger raids, or possibly new classes at long last. But if the USK listing proves truthful, we won't have long to wait.
