Were you looking for info about the comic called The Third Faction?
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

The idea of a playable third faction, neither Alliance 15 Alliance nor Horde 15 Horde, but not exactly Neutral 15 Neutral, has been considered, discussed and speculated upon for years in the Warcraft community. Blizzard has never acknowledged or seriously considered it as an option, due to the lack of lore support (intentional or not) and the probable logistical difficulties of supporting a third faction in Warcraft games, but especially World of Warcraft. The idea of more than two factions is not new to Warcraft, since Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos had potentially four factions (Human, Undead, Orc, and Night Elf) that were later condensed into two for the MMO.

Although not for an MMO, Blizzard already supports games with more than two playable factions, such as its RTS series of StarCraft which has three main playable factions, Terran, Protoss, and Zerg, and other sometimes playable sub-factions.

In Mists of Pandaria Edit

Mists-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

In Mists of Pandaria, the new Pandaren player characters start out as neutral for the first 10 levels, effectively making them like a "third faction." However, since they are unlikely to be able to leave their phased starting zone until after level 10, the practical game effect is negligible.
