WoW must be the most successful video game of all time, but it can't go on for ever and I don't imagine Blizzard expects it to do so. But at over 8m subscribers that's still hugely lucrative. So I expect Blizzard will just make hay whilst the sun shines.

More interesting perhaps is what they are doing with their Titan project, rumoured to be have been in development since 2007 or earlier, but about which very little is known.
