    But 5-10 years from now when WOW2 does get announced I will be genuinely excited for it

    It'll probably be a EQN clone.. (ironic) , or should I say a GW2 clone?  I like Blizzard products some of the time, but no way am I playing those tier progression games anymore..   Been there, done that..

    I hope not. That would be a step backwards for the genre.

    My first thoughts would be several.

    I would expect rabid fanbois to throw themselves at the game without ever trying it ,then proclaim it the best thing on earth since Ketchup and fries.

    I would expect the game to look cartoony,no not a knock on Wow,Blizzard is famous for low end tech in all their games.However i would also say hmm this is a giant developer,lots of money,like EVERY game,i would be willing to give it a shot and see what it delivers.

    I do have preconceived thoughts of developers but i also look forward to trying every game for fear i may miss out on a hidden gem.

    Another concern i would have is the TYPE of gamer that would reside in WOW,but again that would depend on the design.

    Blizzard is more about marketing gimmicks,i would kind of expect a very shallow game with the gimmick to ride on an Esport theme.Blizzard likes to ride that rail of gamer's and their ego's and the fact tons of gamer's like a platform to brag.Sp pvp would be a definite theme,one i do not like.

    My fave games,Vanguard,Eq2,FFXI all are PVE dominate games,so ya i would be worried Blizzard would try and deliver everything i hate in a MMORPG.

    People would expect WoW in a new skin with better graphics.....This is probably what has people ticked off about EQN..... Using a major franchise name people have expectations.....If they made a WoW2 people wouldn't expect the bastard child of GW2 and Minecraft.

    "why would they kill their own company / game by introducing a competing product?"  That would be my first thought.

    Then I'd think "Oh thank God I'm dreaming"

    I wonder if they'll release it before my grandkids are too old to play it.

    If it was like Vanilla/BC pre-super easy mode WoW, then I'd be interested.

    My thought would be, o boy another game that hand feeds you everythong on a silver platter while the game plays itself for you, I PASS!!!

    "There goes the sandbox revival"

    "F2P lovers will be crying themselves to sleep tonight"

    "Welcome to a second decade of slavery to the WoW template"

    "Have I got to get used to lame cartoony graphics again?"

     

    Not sure what thought would come first though.

    From Blizz ... probably fun.

    I highly doubt they will go the old wow route though.

    I would jump for joy, do back flips and shout with glee from the highest roof tops!  Even though I am not currently playing WoW, I still love the game and love Blizzard!

    Count me as someone who thinks Blizzard is crazy NOT to make a WoW 2.  WoW is still the top revenue producing MMO, but the writing is clearly on the wall that the game is in decline.  I don't see anything reversing the trend for subscription numbers to keep dropping.  Knowing that a WoW 2, even if it was created based on tech developed from Project Titan, would still be 3-5 years away, it's perfect timing. 

    You don't wait until your cash cow is dead and then start developing a new game.  You start developing the new game when you can project that it's failing, but still has some time left.  By the time WoW 2 came to market, original WoW would be down significantly and people would be ready for the new incarnation of WoW.

    Do I think it will happen?  No, not really, but I can hope!

    What if Blizzard announced World of Warcraft 2?? 

    Sure, it's project Titan and it's NOT another wow game or similar but if..........   IF??

    WHat would be my response? Finally all the closet WoW Fanboy's and girls can stop looking for the mythical "WOW Clone" because Blizzard has just announced they are making it.

    "Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

    If Blizzard are really smart (and there's evidence they are), their new game will never be WoW 2... but more something like "Universe of Starcraft". Diablo would be too close to WoW either, so I exclude the "World of Diablo" option.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    Where is the "meh!" option?

     

    I will be curious, but I've been disappointed so many times by MMOs (including WoW), at various points in their life cycles that I just don't care about a game until I can play it.

    I'm totally on-board with this.  Blizzard has a fantasy-based game already, it would make more sense to address another genre with their next game.  After all, there's no real reason to move 6-8 million customers from one game to a similar game.

    I'd also suggest that we might expect a different art-style from WoW, also.   It makes sense for Blizzard's next entry to look more realistic than previous games.

    I can't wait to see the South Park parody!

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    First honest to goodness reaction of "WoW 2", (Ala EQ2): Are they idiots??

     

    Making WoW 2, is shooting their milking cow to make burgers... a stupid as heck move.

     

    Now, if Project Titan is something completely UnWoW like, I would be curious and would follow its announcement through alpha, beta, and will even try it out. I don't care what company makes a game, since to me, brand means very little. (Yes, I am the type of person that gets generic cereals and medicine to save a couple dollars.)
