Last week's leak of a series of internal documents detailing Blizzard's
upcoming products has taken a turn away from tabloid headlines with reports of a full investigation
underway at the gaming behemoth's China offices. The leak, brought to light by MMOGameSite.com
, may be linked to the recent resignation of Ye Weilun, Blizzard
China's general manager.
Among other things, the leaked documents indicated that Blizzard could be releasing Diablo 3
and something Starcraft 2
-related (dubbed "Phoenix") in 2011. The 5-year roadmap also shows two new World of Warcraft
expansions and Blizzard's long-rumored WoW
followup, an MMO code-named Titan.
While much of the information surrounding the leak should be taken with a grain of salt (Blizzard has yet to officially confirm any information relating to the story), several analysts
and industry reporters
have speculated that the scenario seems entirely plausible.
