Blizzard talks (very generally) about its next MMO

Speaking very generally, Blizzard COO Paul Sams has unveiled just a few pieces of information about the well-known game developer's next MMO. He spoke briefly with Videogaming247 ahead of the London launch event for Wrath of the Lich King last night, referring to the in-development title as 'next generation', 'cool, new, and different.' Despite the time we've known they were working on another game, it is still apparently very much in the early stages of development. Sams describes a bit of their development process, noting the length of time the company takes on pre-production before actual content creation even starts.

The COO was up-front about the fact that Blizzard is going to keep this thing under wraps for some time yet. As Sams put it, "The last thing we want to do is say, 'Hey we're doing this,' and everyone says, 'Oh cool,' and then we change things completely. We want to have a level of confidence that the direction we're going in the right one, and that it's polished enough to be able to show something, also. And we're not in either of those places yet."
