But Blizzard is making a new MMO, and that's news.

Starcraft MMO.

    It's not Starcraft II... so fuck it.

    Well, from what I've heard, they are working on two games. The rumor is that they are going to release starcraft II and the MMO at the same time...

    That would be pretty okay.

    Starcraft does not work as well as an MMO compared to Warcraft. They should just make Starcraft 2.

    This doesn't seem like a smart business choice.

    I dunno though, I wouldn't think competing with yourself would help business.

    Wait... hold on. Think of it like this:

    World of Warcraft: Diamond
    World of Starcraft: Pearl

    Well if they make it more like an Eve/WoW mutant, it would bring in a different demographic, but over all you're right.

    Which is why this hurts me, because I want it to be true so badly.

    Starcraft DS
    Starcraft MMO
    Starcraft: Ghost
    A WoW expansion
    A new IP altogether
    World of Blackthorne

    I have this thing with strategy games.

    I love playing them and victory in them for me is one of the most satisfying and exciting things...

    ...but defeat is so brutal in them and I always hit this wall of skill where I feel like I can never get any better and it's frustrating as all hell.

    true, people would play it, but how many would switch from WoW to play it? it dosen't make much sense to put another competing MMO out when you have 1 that is the best in the business right now.

    It's better to have new games that are still on top then let your old game grow stale and have a competitor take all your business

    it's not like this is coming out soon anyway, it is just announced

    if they're completely different games it's certainly doable

    ncsoft has guild wars, auto assault, lineage, and city of heroes

    now granted, auto assault sucks dick, but they all have their different fanbases

    I guess the belief would be that a starcraft MMO would suck up all the space fanboys. Any sci-fi fantasy nerds would be quick on the draw to starcraft MMO, in which case Blizzard would effectively corner the market on MMOs.

    SC2, however, would give me a raging boner.
