Blizzard: New MMOG "Significantly Different" from WoW

Blizzard COO Says New MMO ‘Significantly Different’ From Warcraft on Wired.com hears once again from Paul Sams COO of Blizzard, who answered questions about various topics at BlizzCon. The conversation covers several projects, but highlights Sams' comments about Blizzard's mysterious other MMORPG, saying it will be different enough from World of Warcraft that it probably won't cannibalize a lot of the WoW user-base: "I think the (new MMO) is going to be significantly differentiated enough," he says. "Such that, you’re not going to feel like they’re one and the same resulting in that you have to pick or choose." Of course if it comes to that, they will live with it, as he also says: "If the bad thing that happens to us is that they leave WoW and go to this other thing of Blizzard’s, then we’ll work through that pain."

Agree with BobBob about liking to see the "grind" disappear, even if it's just an illusion. That's the problem with so many games today (especially those with character levels to them), you spend all your time leveling to get to a point where you can actually participate in what you truly want to do. It's kind of why I like FPS type games because skills often translate easily and you can get into the "meat" of the game right away. Even more so, when you have friends, they can jump in and interact with you right away as well. There is none of this "I've got to grind a few weeks to get to your level before I can play with you" crap that you see in games with character levels.
