Next Warcraft Expansion: Cataclysm?

The World of Warcraft community is on fire following the release of some "leaked" information regarding the next expansion. According to a post on MMO Champion, the next expansion will be titled Cataclysm and will center around a catastrophic event which will dramatically alter Azeroth's geography. Along with two new races (Goblins and Worgen) and a level 85 cap, the expansion will supposedly largely involve a retooling of old world content for endgame. Check out the full article here, though be warned that if it is accurate it contains some serious spoilers.

Keep in mind that his sort of Pre-Blizzcon speculation is common and often wrong. Hopefully everyone remembers that the Southshore Worgen were practically confirmed as an Alliance race by many bloggers prior to the release of Burning Crusade. Whoops...Draenie! On the other hand, MMO Champion is far from a fly-by-night operation. Also, there is some loose evidence in the game already that may lend credence to the "leaks."

For more speculative goodness, check out MMO Champion's response to the initial backlash as well as some semi-interesting forum posts on the topic here, here, and here. Again, be mindful that many of these discussions are riddled with potential spoilers. Here's looking forward to the curtain being lifted at Blizzcon this weekend.
