Let's face it, what Blizzard is best at is taking an existing idea, copying it, wrapping it up in their own stuff and then polishing it, making it accessible for masses and outshining the original.
Once upon a time they saw Dune 2 and thought how great it would be with the Warhammer setting. When getting the setting didnt go well, they just made their own copy based on it. And success it was.
After 2 games they decided that something like WH40k wouldnt hurt too and just for the heck of it they merged it with Alien and Predator and StarCraft was born.
W3 was another logical step in the 3D era. And after that the best and worst thing to ever happen to MMOs, taking Everquest, applying Diablo system to it and placing it in Warcraft universe, WoW was born.
Every game just enhanced, polished and very accessible version of an existing blueprint.
So my question is, what do you guys think will be the next MMO from Blizzard based on? Can we hope this time they make for example EVE clone? Or just Everquest with guns and lazers again? Or even *gasp* something entirely original?
EDIT: Just to make it clear, game system wise, setting is most probably SC
