    Considering they are developing the next Starcraft 2 game, Diablo 3, an unannounced MMO, and WoW expansions and content, its perfectly believable that they have their hands full,

    It would be nice to hear any news you have about "the mysterious Project Titan"

    Who said anything about the current blizzard employees? You added that yourself.

    Blizzard is a company not a bunch of individuals.

    I believe the founder and several of the employees that started the company are still there today.

    I don't think Starcraft would really lend itself well to the MMO style anywyays, but I'm still massively disappointed that we never saw the Ghost spinoff. THAT'S something I still want to play eventually, though Blizzard really isn't known for FPS and would probably botch it anyway unelss they subcontracted id or something.

    Far too busy, and also far too smart.

    Blizzard knows best that few gamers play more than one MMO concurrently and that, if they see success anywhere near WoW's, an MMO will live for at least a couple years. With Project Titan in the works and WoW still alive and kicking there's just no room for a Starcraft MMO without cannibalizing some of their own playerbase.
