Rumor: Blizzard’s Five-Year Roadmap Leaked

A source close to MMOGameSite has allegedly leaked Blizzard’s internal five-year outlook. Contained within are release dates for the company’s entire product slate through 2015.
A glance at the timeline reveals that Diablo III is currently pegged for a late 2011 release, coinciding with a StarCraft II expansion and its Phoenix campaign. The third and presumably final SC2 expansion is scheduled to drop in 2013. Also shown are a pair of Diablo III expansions, one due in Q2 2013 with the other slated for Q4 2014.
Warcraft IV is nowhere to be seen on the roadmap, which unfortunately jives with recent reports.
Additionally, a fourth World of Warcraft expansion is set for Q2 2012, with a fifth following in Q4 2013. More interesting is the inclusion of ‘Titan,’ a codename which may signify Blizzard’s next-generation MMO project. It’s planned for Q4 2013.
These leaks have evidently caused quite a stir at Blizzard’s Chinese branch according to the site, prompting a management shuffle following the abrupt resignation of general manager Mr.Ye Weilun.
