So providing the world doesn't abruptly end (thanks Mayan 'scientists'), we could be playing something like Diablo III or StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
Thomas Tippl of the mega giant Activision Blizzard stated to our delight that "a minimum" of two wallet gougers from Blizzard would be releasing by the end of 2012. On the cards from Blizzard at the moment is Diablo III and StarCraft II's next instalment.
It's very unlikely their MMO project Titan would be ready in time. So is 2012 looking up for you, videogamer? Perhaps you're busy settling accounts before?
