Internet rumors regarding two new playable races in World of Warcraft's unannounced new expansion continue to stir, as sources close to one website point further towards the addition of Worgen and Goblins.

WoW.com reports that "multiple sources close to the situation" have laid out the two new playable races in World of Warcraft's "Cataclysm" expansion to be the Worgen and the Goblins, as indicated by the two new Halloween masks data mined from the latest patch last month. And really that's all they have to offer right now. Sources have told them, and the internet goes crazy with the news.

Of course, there really isn't any news. BlizzCon is a week and a half away, and if Blizzard plans a big expansion announcement, that's where they would announce it. We've contacted the company for comment, but really don't expect a confirmation before next week.

As I've said before, the two new races would make sense, but I still remain highly skeptical. It isn't like Blizzard to leak big news before they announce it, as it would seem it has if the rumors prove true.

Just relax, everyone. The answers are coming next Friday.

I find this questionable, not only because it's so obvious, but because making the Goblins a faction-aligned race poses all sorts of problems for neutral cities like Booty Bay and the worgen have no more presence in WoW lore than gnolls or wendigos. I'm sure they could find a way to make goblins work canonically, but it would seem strange that they would pass over more prominent races like the naga in favor of the worgen.
