Six Blizzard Releases Expected Over Three Years [Updated]

GameSpot has word from the Citi 2011 Technology Conference, where Activision Blizzard COO Thomas Tippl revealed they expect six "proven property" releases from Blizzard over the next three years. This would seem to include a World of Warcraft expansion or two, the two remaining StarCraft II releases, Diablo III and a DLC pack, though presumably not Titan, as their mysterious MMORPG is not yet a "proven property."

Err... Diablo 2 had an expansion pack. Worked just fine. The DLC areas probably just won't be accessible to you unless you pay. Or they'll add more characters... or whatever. I don't care. I'll be skipping it.

And I'll believe that SC2's other 2/3 of the game will be coming out in 3 years when I see it. It will have taken 2 years to get the first of the two out the door.

At the end of the day I don't care. WoW got old, D3 looks like a whiff (always on is an auto-fail for me, elaborate auction houses and real money sh*t means legitimate gold mining. Yay.), and SC2 was halfway interesting for the one playthrough it got (not interested in playing competitively online). Maybe Titan will interest me, but I'm not holding my breath.

Blizzard isn't the company it used to be.

I don't agree with everything you said but I think your sentiment is spot on. Remember all of those people who claimed SC2 was a must have and that everyone would buy it no matter what they said on a forum and blah blah blah? Well it turned out they were wrong and SC2 was barely a blip for most people. It sold well but it isn't exactly the must play game that everyone is talking about anymore.

Speak for yourself. I think SC2 is incredible. I still play it and follow the tournaments regularly. Stoked for DreamHack Valencia, NASL S2, and the next GSL season. Yes I left out the GSL finals. I love the season, but their finals always seem to disappoint.
