Activision Blizzard COO Thomas Tippl revealed the three-year plan for Blizzard last Friday.
The plan involves “six proven property” releases, including two expansion packs for World of Warcraft and Starcraft II. Not much is known about the upcoming WoW releases, but Blizzard has already revealed that SC2 will have two expansions, with one of the being the upcoming Heart of the Swarm.
Then, of course, there is Diablo III. A release date for this game, which may soon go into open beta, has still not been set, and Tippl states that it has not yet been factored into their earnings expectations. However, he proposed that an expansion for Diablo III should be out by 2014.
Of course, Blizzard might still release something completely new altogether — such as its latest and greatest MMO, Titan. That particular offering is scheduled (inasmuch as a Blizzard release is ever scheduled this far in advance) for fall 2013.
Blizzard, for its part, remained mum on the whole thing, preferring instead to concentrate on the known releases for its three existing franchises. As well it should, for it has a busy three years in store.
