WoW.com Claims Leaked Races For Future Expansion

As you might remember, last month we reported that Blizzard trademarked the title "Cataclysm," which led to speculation that the next World of Warcraft expansion would bear that name (and perhaps focus around the events that were set in motion by The Great Sundering). Well, it wasn't long after that WoW.com reported the discovery of new Halloween masks in the game files, depicting two races that will remain nameless until after the jump. (Hey, I don't want to be "that guy" that spoiled you.)

When it comes to "leaked" information, WoW.com has hit just about as many as it's missed. That's why we're reporting that they've reported inside sources have leaked the big one, and "confirmed" to the website what the next playable races in WoW will be (and for which faction). You can check out the site's post here, or click through to the jump if you'd like to know what WoW.com claims the next playable races will be.

Quoted directly from WoW.com:

Our sources have told us that the new races of Cataclysm will be:

Worgen – Alliance

Goblin – Horde

I think this is highly unlikely. Remember that list that was leaked, listing all the zones that were planned for future expansions? Well it didn't have any new level 1-10 zones or 10-20 zones for the third expansion, just 80-90 zones.

Time to re-roll Female Worgen and completely go against my very principles. Blizz did something amazing: made female Worgens hot.

(at least from what I can tell from the Halloween masks)
Goblins!?

Why isn't Alla khazam pointing out that WoW.com is using MMO-champ as thier source. Which was already let go as a false alarm, by the person who posted the claim...

Because WoW.com didn't cite MMO-Champ as a source. Read both the articles on WoW.com I linked. MMO-Champ isn't mentioned at all. The only REMOTE reference to MMO-Champ is in one word at the bottom of the newest WoW.com article, linked from the word "places," which links to this article:

http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=79546.0

...which was published July 17 at 10:21 p.m., almost seven hours after WoW.com first posted the "masks" story.

I'm not cheerleading for either site...just answering your question.
