It's Fun To Speculate: Another New Blizzard Game?

While we're being all mainstreamy this morning, it's worth nodding over at BlizzPlanet's canny sniffing around the Blizzard haunches. We already know they've a mystery MMO in the works as well as Starcraft II and Diablo III, but if this direct quote is gen-ooo-ayne, it seems the king o'polish has a fifth game up their sleeve...

1. This brand-new game is not a World of Warcraft expansion, and it is not related to the Next-Gen MMO.

2. In the present, the brand-new game is using the World of Warcraft engine merely for testing purposes.

3. The Client Software Engineer job opening is to hire the person that will have the responsibility to develop an engine from scratch for this game. This new engine will be built depending on the skill and interest of the person hired for this position.

Whether this game is based on the three major franchises (Warcraft, Starcraft or Diablo) or a new IP, that remains unknown.

Warcraft IV? World of Starcraft? World of Warcraft For Kids? Speculation Rangers, GO!
