Blizzard Working on Multiple Diablo Sequels?

There's another interesting tidbit in Activision Blizzard's annual 10K filing that mentions Blizzard is working on "sequels" to the Diablo franchise. Diablo III is the only Diablo sequel that's been announced, so it's not clear if this means another Diablo game is in the works, if this refers to Diablo III DLC, or if they plan to release Diablo III in installments as they plan to with StarCraft II (it also could just be a typo, but those are pretty rare in financial reports). Here's what it says: "Blizzard is currently developing new games, including a new expansion pack to the World of Warcraft franchise, Cataclysm, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, which will be released with the new and improved Battle.net, and sequels to the Diablo franchise." IncGamers contacted Blizzard with an inquiry about this, and were told: "We appreciate the interest, but we don't have any new announcements to make. For the Diablo franchise, our full focus is on Diablo III."

First off, Blizzard has said the next MMO they are doing is on an entirely NEW IP.

So their first new IP since 98 when Starcraft was released (which was a rip off of warhammer 40k anyway).

We'll see if they still have it. A lot of the old Blizzard dev crew has since moved on.

Seeing Blizzard's track record of shamelessly ripping off Games Workshop IP, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the MMO being developed was a rip of Blood Bowl or something similar.
