Blizzard's MMOFPS?

French site NoFrag offers a rumor (in the site's native French) on Blizzard's upcoming mystery MMOG, as 2010 continues its pace for a record number of game-related rumors. As interpreted by Google Translate, we see they are reporting the game will be an MMO first-person shooter set in a futuristic environment, attributing this information to "d'une source proche du dossier," which is the French equivalent of "a source familiar with the matter." They say the MMOFPS will have two components, one a social/lifestyle element like The Sims Online, with the other being where the combat takes place. Blizzard obviously has an existing IP that would match up with this idea, and it is also quite compatible with Blizzard's explanations that their unannounced MMOG is "significantly differentiated enough" from World of Warcraft.

They probably wouldn't, but I doubt Blizzard wants WoW's player to go play something else anyways. This is more aimed at a different segment of the market, one that is currently NOT playing WoW

yup.. why spend a bunch of money on a new game that would end up eating the subs you have already. i haven't read the story nor do i put alot of credit in the sources but i'm thinking this game will be very different and i am hoping for the next Planetside. It would make sense to me, they have always taken other's work to the next level.
