2012 releases:
CFO Thomas Tippl said two Blizzard titles were expected in 2012, including Diablo III. Blizzard reports that "the company's first quarter 2012 does not incorporate a new release from Blizzard Entertainment." Meaning Diablo III will not be out until at least May.

In addition to Diablo III, Blizzard is currently developing StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Blizzard DOTA, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, a "Next-Gen MMO", and is exploring a possible console version of Diablo III.

Tippl stated that there's still a possibility Blizzard could release more than two titles in 2012, but the official line is two titles for now. Knowing Blizzard it'll be done when it's done.

Wow Subscriptions:
As of December 31, 2011, 10.2 million players were subscribed to World of Warcraft down from 10.3 million the previous quarter. 10.2 million is still an enormous number of subscribers, but represents a trend that World of Warcraft's subscriber base may have entered into a state of permanent decline.

Blizzard aims to change that with the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion, though its interesting to note that WoW subscriptions continued to decline even after Mists was announced at BlizzCon 2011. As of yet, Mists of Pandaria does not have a specific release date.
