Yikes. It’s no surprise that the Blizzard China manager who let this slide leak has been fired. I’m surprised he wasn’t “relocated” to a labor camp in the deep north or something. It pretty much leaks Blizzard’s plans for the next five years, though a savvy analyst might have come to the same conclusions.
As you can see, there are updates to Battle.net coming, including a “Map Market,” which is probably for selling extra maps as DLC. Starcraft 2 is getting its expansions and a “Phoenix” version (probably a standalone thing) in late 2011, then another in 2012.
Diablo 3, as we know, is getting its release in late 2011. My god, why did they announce it so early?! And then you’ve got an expansion a year later, and a second a year after taht.
WoW is getting its expansions, one a year, plus a card game (relevant) and potentially a movie in 2012.
Then there’s the mysterious “Titan,” thought to be Blizzard’s next big MMO. It would coincide with the final expansion for WoW; you’ll notice there are no plans for more content after 2013.
