Blizzard fans were out in force in London tonight, celebrating the launch of the much anticipated World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade expansion, but another Blizzard game might have stolen the limelight.

Itzik Ben Bassat, Vice President Business Development and International for Blizzard Entertainment, took the stage at HMV Oxford Street, London, and said some rather revealing words.

"I'm a StarCraft player myself and I hope it's not a decade, and we launched StarCraft in 1998, before I'm standing here again, celebrating the next game in the series," stated Bassat while on stage.

So, while not an official date for the next game in the StarCraft series, a new game by 2008 looks very likely. We'll keep our ear to the ground for more info.

Earlier today Blizzard game designer Jonathan LeCraft revealed to Pro-G that Blizzard has no plans to bring its hit MMO World of Warcraft to consoles.

yea i loved the story line.
I also loves makeing maps.
So i would like a better engine one that can handle more.

I don't much care for the game that are out there currently.

SC was suppose to be in development for atleast 7 years now.
I remember there was suppose to be plans on SC2 when we finish broodwar.

I have to admit the worse part of the game was the hacker well it was a bit fun beating them seeing cheaters doesn't have any skill even with the advantage they gain from those hack programs.

I don't care about the graphics or even if they continue with theo old SC engine and graphics, but I want them finish that damn storyline!
It's one of the things that made SC great - it's a fantastic RTS with an actual storyline!

I waited for the next StarCraft ever since I finish brood war.
I haven’t play the game in ages since it release.

The editor I thought had it limits I was always overloading it.
Too many script made some cancel each other out. =^-^=

I hope they do bring back StarCraft and keep it original design.
Also to improve the editor so we can place more and get more out of it.

I don’t have any copy of the maps I use to make nor do I have mine copy.
I think someone took mine copy of the game.
Am glad other still playing the game and was hoping to rejoin the game after such a long time away.

not sure if any 1 has a brain but sc was just made so they could get money for there beloved wc series they didnt think it would be as big as it has become
hell the original name of sc was war craft in space they decided to save the name (and of course decided that it was a lame name) its pretty obvious since they have put out what 5 wc and what 2 exp of wc and whats all this about sc ghost not come out ? it is out and has been out for a long time and maybe it does suck but it was such a huge project to realease a console based game they hired a out side companie that did most of the work on it

so i think we surprised them when we decided sc was so great and just maybe they know that sc made them what they are and they may just surprise the sh*t out of us and basicly realease it very quickly after they do finally announce it

btw i know i cant type or spell so flame baby flame good thing i have a parachute in this plane :p
