AGDC 2007 - Morhaime : Starcraft MMO or Diablo MMO?

Gamespot asked a very eye-popping question to Mike Morhaime, and his response was further exciting.  Specially with all the rumors abound in the past two years. Read the full article.

Gamespot: Does the overwhelming success of it mean that a hypothetical Starcraft MMOG would be pushed further out because you have this thriving community that you don’t want to cannibalize?

Mike Morhaime: Not necessarily. It’s actually more a question of us not wanting to cannibalize the resources that are going into supporting the game. We can’t just take the World of Warcraft team and have them work on another game. But what we can do is staff up the World of Warcraft team and gradually peel off some of our developers to start working on something new. But it will take time. And we’re at the stage right now where we’re starting to think about what we want to do next.
