Okay, so they're still not talking about it.

Blizzard is continuing to be tight-lipped about it's next MMO project. The only thing we know that it is going to be is an MMO made by Blizzard, and the list of things that we're pretty sure it won't be is pretty slim. We do at least know where production stands at the moment, thanks to Paul Sams at the London launch event for Wrath of the Lich King.

“We’re definitely at the beginning, in the first half of development,” said the exec, explaining that Blizzard tends to work to a two-half process when creating new games.

“When we’re building a new game from the ground up, what happens is that it’s slow going for the first bit, while the team goes round and round and round figuring out how it’s going to look and feel, what the player experience is and what the differentiators are, and then the speed at which we then bring in the contet and polish and actually get to the finish line… I think the second half of the process is always substantially faster than the first half of product development,” he said.

Sams said when we’re going to see first mention of the game.

So in other words, get settled in for a long wait. Blizzard is notorious for taking it's time with a game, and if we haven't even gotten to the point where the public knows what it is, it will be a long time before this game is relevant.
