It's no secret that Blizzard is working on a "next-gen MMO," as evidenced by job listings on their website.
But during BlizzCon this past weekend, "World of Warcraft" game director Jeffrey Kaplan confirmed to MTV Multiplayer that he's "definitely involved" in the project.
"I think the great part about a new MMO from Blizzard is that it doesn't have to be 'WoW'," he said. "There are a lot of lessons we learned in making 'World of Warcraft,' and some of those you can take and apply to an expansion and fix problems or do things better than you ever did before."
MTV Multiplayer also asked if he was concerned about the new MMO potentially cannibalizing "WoW" subscribers. Kaplan said he wasn't worried at all, and that the company was going to great lengths to make sure that the new game doesn't directly cannibalize "WoW."
