Following speculation surrounding job advertisements on Blizzard's website, a community administrator has confirmed on the World of Warcraft forums that the developer is currently at work on an unannounced, next-gen MMO.

The job postings displayed are seeking lead character and environment 3D artists for the unspecified project, which has an icon reading "Top Secret!" displayed alongside the posting where the logo for the appropriate game property would normally be.

The community administrator addressed the speculation on the forums succinctly, but said, "No, it is an unannounced Next-Gen MMO. And that doesn't mean an expansion for World of Warcraft either.

Earlier this year, Blizzard founding member and senior vice president of product development Frank Pearce told Gamasutra that the company had created a workforce titled "Team 3," comprised of about 40 members separate from the Starcraft and Warcraft teams.

Pearce declined to give any details on what the team might be working on, only saying that "Team 3 is working on something really awesome. I canít give you any hints, but itís totally awesome."
