World of Warcraft Sequel Coming Soon?

Blizzard's vice president Rob Pardo couldn't resist kicking the Internet rumor mill into high gear by confirming the unannounced W.O.W. project.

In an interview with German site OnlineWelten during the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational, Pardo discussed Blizzard's continued success as a developer as well as the measured steps it has taken toward building its development teams. When he was asked about a recent job posting on Blizzard's site for a next generation MMO, Pardo smiled and said, "Yes, there is one more unknown project still in development."

Unfortunately Pardo didn't elaborate much beyond that and Pardo reminded the interviewers of Blizzard's well-known penchant for only releasing games that are finished, a policy that doesn't look to be changing anytime soon.

"We ship the games when they're ready," Pardo said. "And while it would be great to go on a piece of paper saying one game this year, one game next year, I would love if that happened. But we're going to make the right decision for the game."

Looks like WoW fans will have to content themselves with epic raids on the Icecrown glacier in the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack
