no, it wouldn't be two separate teams working on SC2; that would, in fact, be one larger team :P

Also it's ongoing stuff for World of Warcraft - not just regular ongoing maintenance stuff but I think they said they were gonna churn out another expansion or several didn't they? (I wouldn't know, I've never played WoW :P)
The comment came amid discussion of the company's current workforce. "Our global headcount is 2,700," said Pearce, "And most of that is customer service for World of Warcraft! In terms of development staff it’s probably around 350. World of Warcraft is about 135 people, 40 for Starcraft II, 40 for team 3, our cinematics team is about 85 guys. Then there’s sound and Q/A and that sort of thing."

When pressed for details regarding the new project, Pearce was cagey. "Team 3 is working on something really awesome. I can’t give you any hints, but it’s totally awesome."

They are working on another WoW expansion yes.

Also Chris, I think your jokes are becoming really lame, really fast. :P

Probably Diablo 3, thought lots of people thin,k it's SC Ghost because there was an article where Blizzard said they weren't done with it.
Though a completley new game would be awesome.

Yes but Rob Pardo has stated (its at Blizzplanet in the SCGhost section) that they will probably go back to it, but probably around 2010.

Quote me where they mentioned a year.

All my news sites tell me he mentioned there might be possibilities in the future.

qft.

Everyone knows there's at least 3-4 more expansions. And most of us on Vent agree, they wont raise cap on each expansion from now on, instead just open new lands, worlds, or dimensions. There's A LOT in the WarCraft lore still untouched. Plus, MMORPGs continue their progress through expansions, so who knows when it'll end.

Anyway, also qft: Stop saying Magic's Ass. I hope you at least know who Magic is. I'm sure he'd be offended by now.

There is an error in this statement. Can you tell me what it is?

edit - Don't know where you get "most" of us, lav, since I don't recall you even mentioning that. Personally I wouldn't be surprised if they continued to up the level cap every expansion. I mean, that's the way WoW is heading, isn't it? Phase out everything to the point of uselessness just so the next bigger fights with bigger numbers can take place? It's like the Dragon Ball Z of MMO's. Besides, there's still a Lich King and some Titans we need to kill with sticks and stones.

Just now a wondering, why do we have to kill some of the Titans? I believe its Old Gods we still must kill besides C'Thun.

It wouldn't be an epic raid encounter unless you're killing something that has undescribable power with your sword of stabbing power +42.

For the internal CC pool, I'm gambling on a completely new franchise. Either a shooter or an RTS.

I'd be pretty surprised if Blizzard made a shooter.

Something in the vein of the Doom or Quake series?
Yeah, I'm from the STF forum. I was that dude that, like, was 5 posts away from becoming an officer, and then, like, the forum shitted out on us for whatever reason.

Gee, whatever happened to those cool rank images?
