Blizzard's next MMO 'won't be another WoW' - exec

Bassat promises something new.

Not content with committing the ultimate sin and mentioning unannounced games the other day, Blizzard's vice president of development Itzik Ben Bassat has dropped hints about the company's next MMOG.

"When we announce our next MMORPG it's not going to be another WoW - we're not a company that tends to tread the same ground," said Bassat, speaking to film magazine Empire around the time of Burning Crusade's launch. "It'll be something innovative and new that really brings entertainment to another level."

Bassat also offered a brief status update on the Warcraft film. "Hollywood has it's own pace but we're working as hard as we can to push it forwards," he said.

The Burning Crusade launched last week. We're playing it now, rather feverishly, so expect a review in the very near future. For more on the launch, check out our report on the night's events or marvel at the HMV Oxford Street photos.
