We've been speculating
's next MMO for quite a long time. We're not just talking about the splash screen
from last week (which panned out to be Diablo III
, a non-massive game). There have been job postings
on the company's website advertising various positions in a team working on a "Next-Gen MMO," which is confirmed as a totally new title
, not an expansion for World of Warcraft.
There have also been murmurs
of a project codenamed "Hydra." We've always wondered -- are Hydra and the Next-Gen MMO one and the same?
Now we have our answer: no. A reader of our sister site WoW Insider noticed a caption
that read "Hydra" on an image
(above) in Blizzard's Diablo III gallery.
Yep, Diablo III
is Hydra. So if your sole interest is Galaxy of Starcraft
, move along now. Hydra is not the savior you've been waiting for. And as WoW Insider noted, Blizzard is working on three different projects at once. That's a lot on its plate. Now that Diablo III
has been announced, we're not expecting any news about the Next-Gen MMO anytime soon.
