Even with the Warcraft series included there is not enough information to base a conclusion on, so removing it just makes it even worse. Still you're right in what you say about SC2 being announced before D3, and i agree with you that D3 will come out around 2 years after SC2. It's just you can't go ahead and assume, "Oh it took them 10 years to release a Starcraft sequel, therefore it'll take 10 years for a Diablo one". Well the sequel to Warcraft came out after 1 year of Warcraft's release, and the sequel to that came 7 years after.

They are building up people for a new project. With SC2 coming out in probably a year, they are not gona say, Hey look SC3! And they wont declare a SC MMO. Because why would they compete against themselves. Which also leads into another point of the fact that Diablo 3 which i believe they will come out with, will be a free to play as well. Quite possible to suscribe to it, to get extra features like new skills 2x bank size , stuff like that, but not necessary to play. With that, they can keep their WoW audiance and obtain another. If they do that, it works better on their part because unless they leave WoW, they get the same money, and if they play D3 isntead of WoW, thats less load on the server which will save them some money.

BUT!... There is a posibility of declaring a new game as well. Perhaps they will start working on :
SC Ghost again the RPG FPS.
WarCraft Adventures

Or even throw a curveball and announce more on the Warcraft Movie as well.

No reason to not make another MMO really. If they make a Diablo MMO even if people leave WoW to play it, they will draw more fans in from other games back to play the Diablo MMO, plus keeping the WoW players who could be getting boared with the gameplay, and if people make the switch they never lose that customer. They would not be losing money, not when there is such a strong Diable fan base, and such an MMO craze right now.

Starcraft 2 isn't announced? I guess all those screenshots we've seen, and the version I played in leipzig are all fake?

Well it updated again. I'd have to say it's starting to look like the lich king more and more.

that even if it is diablo III, we will have to wait till the end of 2009 sometime before it is released. That's along time, I think we've known about starcraft II for about that long, if not two years? I think I will die of suspense before the game comes out!

Diablo III would definetly take the cake as my preference, but another WoW'ish game from one of their universes would also rock. WoW=Good Formula but old.

Something tells me to be prepared for something unexpected. A new game that we haven't seen or heard of before might be coming...
