    Default StarCraft II Expansions, Diablo III Coming in "Next Few Years"

    During a presentation in New York today, Thomas Tippl, Activision Blizzard chief financial officer, raved about the strong business done by Bliizard games. He said the division has a full pipeline of content, which he presented in the slide pictured
    here.

    While the lineup confirms continued World of Warcraft support and a Starcraft II launch in 2010 (with expansions to follow after), Diablo III was marked to be released in 2011 at the soonest.

    One step at a time, let's get SC2 in our hands FIRST! Unless it is from Blizzard everything else is just a matter of opinion and theory!

    Well, actually, this was previously confirmed. Blizzard stated at another conference that their goal was to present 1 game every year for the next *thinks* 4 years? You might not want to quote me on that.

    The original projection was:
    SC2 2009 or 2010
    D3: 2010 or 2011
    SC2 HotS 2011 or 2012
    Unknown project: 2012 or 2013
    SC2 LotV 2012 or 2013 or 2014

    This did not include WoW expansions, which were explicitly stated were not part of this schedule as they have their own specific team ensuring they have as common of content as possible for their (at that time) yearly goal of 1 expansion per year. That is not the case, but they still are considering WoW to be on a 10 year lifespan in news references. It could always expand.. but yeah.

    Understand, the information I currently present is considered "old news" so if you claim it's out of date, you are most probably correct.

    EDIT: This was also back when they were trying to explain the 2 starcraft expansions as "individual games"... which they've since changed and stated are merely expansions much like brood war.
