skade88 writes "Ars is reporting that Blizzard will announce a new game on March 22, 2013 at PAX East. They say the new game is not a sequel or expansion. Blizzard is also saying the new game is not the long rumored MMO named Titan. Considering that every game Blizzard released since 1998 has had the name StarCraft, Warcraft or Diablo in it, this is big news. Ars speculates in the article that the new game could be Blizzard's version of a DOTA game. They showed off Blizzard All-Stars at BlizzCon 2010 as a SC2 custom map. It could be ready for launch as its own standalone game. I guess we will have to wait and see!"

    Microtransaction Hero!

    Spend real money to buy things to wave your dick around on the forums. Complete with full public profiles so others can see how much money you actually spent.

    Cool features like:
    - Call people noobs for not spending as much money as you have
    - Spend money instead of actually playing the game
    - Spend money to acquire virtual currency that Blizzard owns
    - Spend money to super-inflate the in-game economy so if you want something later, you have to spend more money

    I would LOVE a new Warcraft RTS.

    But not like warcraft 3 where they put too much emphasis on "legends" which were single irreplacable units with super powers that the game revolves around. Too much like a pre-cursor to WoW.

    Maybe this will be World of Starcraft! I have long thought that it was the next evolution of that franchise.

    It will probably be the Bungie and Blizzard collaboration that has yet to be announced. The signed on to develop a game together a couple years back.
