    Blizzard has announced their latest project, which is a MMORPG based in the Warcraft world called World of Warcraft. Not a big surprise to me, I assumed it would be a MMORPG, just wasn't sure if it would take place in the Warcraft world. I won't talk about the game too much, because I'm not really a fan of MMORPGs or even RPGs in general, but I suppose if any company can get me insterested, it could be Blizzard.
    Official Site with screens, FAQ, and 2 movies (one cinematic and one gameplay).
    Lengthy Gamespy Preview with report from ECTS where the game was announced.
    7 Page Gamespot Preview with their own movie (8 and a half minutes).
    Hopefully this doesn't turn into another Warcraft Adventures, but it looks good so far.

    It looks good, me not being an MMORPG fan I cant say I'm all that excited. I will say this, they are joining a really crowded group of games. I personally dont think there are enough gamers running around willing to buy into all of the MMORPGS. Off thetop of my head here are a list of MMORPGS that are out or a scheduled to be released:
    Anarchy Online
    Everquest
    Ultima Online
    Shadowbane
    Quest for Camelot
    Mimesis
    Worlds of Warcraft
    Star Wars Galaxies
    Thats all I can think of right now but does anyone really think that there is enough interest to support this many games of this type? I personally dont.

    It took me 5 minutes to figure out what the hell "MMORPG" was!
    Do I win anything?
