As most of you know Blizzard is responsible for some of the biggest game franchises of all time. There is Diablo, Starcraft, and of course Warcraft. Well rumors have been flying online the past few weeks or so that Blizzard would be announcing Starcraft 2 very soon at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational (WWI) on May 19th. Well, the ever awesome Kotaku boys got a direct response from Blizzard today, and Blizzard indeed confirmed that a new game would in fact be announced at WWI on May 19th.

So, let the speculation begin! Will it be Diablo III, a Diablo online game ala World of Diablo, will it be Warcraft IV or a new expansion for World of Warcraft? Or will it in fact be the game everyone wants, Starcraft 2. Let me remind some of you how big Starcraft actually is still. In South Korea, they broadcast Starcraft matches on TV! Starcraft is insanely popular in South Korea, and I think I can say without a shadow of a doubt that if Blizzard does indeed announce Starcraft 2, millions of South Koreans will explode in a shower of happiness. Oh, and I think some of you guys might get excited also. Yeah, I thought so.

The rumor mill even spills the beans on what the game might include. A 3D Starcraft, with a new race (based off the Kerrigan, not the super duper Zerg-Protoss everyone thought it would be, don't ask me) and the three existing races would get improvements and two new units each. There is even a rumor that the original Starcraft will have its servers shut down to make sure the sequel will succeed. I'd take that last one with a grain of salt, or two.

In fact, new information according to Kotaku suggests that Blizzard is actually working on a "Next-gen" MMO, and that since Starcraft was named by Blizzard itself, we may in fact see World of Starcraft sooner than anyone thinks. Either that or World of Warcraft's next expansion.

So there you have it. Stay tuned, because come May 19th, the internet may in fact implode from all the happy people.

Dunno where you got this, but the main game people want is WC4, the Koreans want Starcraft 2 while most other people want WC4.

"Or will it in fact be the game everyone wants,"

anyway.. either way it will kick ass, unless its another MMO.

Starcraft 2 or WoS will be the best.
"The one everyone wants" is necessarily SC2 or WC4 so everyone stop admitting they "know"

It will be WoW2. 7 million people giving a $50 down payment and then $15 a month after that. The ultimate product.

Yeah, that's quite the money maker.  It certainly would make sense from a money standpoint.
