On Blizzard's Next MMORPG

Empire offers an interview with Blizzard's Itzik Ben Bassat on the topic of World of Warcraft (thanks Kotaku). The final answer offers the obvious point that with over 8 million WoW subscribers, they are not looking to create the same game again in a remark that does indicate plans to further explore the MMORPG market in the future:

When we announce our next MMORPG itís not going to be another WoW - weíre not a company that tends to tread the same ground. Itíll be something innovative and new that really brings entertainment to another level.

As much as I think Blizzard is highly overrated, I wouldn't go so far as to compare them with Michael Bay. The man hasn't made a single decent movie. The Island and The Rock were somewhat watchable (with enough alcohol) and that's about the best you can say about that hack. He's the 21st century Hal Needham.

As for Blizzard, they deserve praise for knowing how to cater to the masses and having stable programming, and the production values of their games are very good, but their interface just flat out sucks (talking about Diabacle and the RTScraft games here). Waaaaaay too much clicking and way too stuck in 1995.
