Paul Sams: “Blizzard intends on delivering one frontline release per year”

During last night’s Acti Blizz Q4 earnings call, Blizzard COO Paul Sams said that, “Blizzard intends on delivering one frontline release per year. I think you can see in our numbers that that is contemplated.”

Everyone knows that Blizzard is hard at work on Diablo III and StarCraft II along with the oft-teased “unannounced MMO”. Everyone also knows that time constraints are not an issue with the firm, as it’ll only release a game “when it is done”. So what’s coming out from Blizzard in 2009?

“As it relates to what title we’re releasing this year, we’re not prepared to say,” said Sams.

It’s StarCraft II, Paul.
