So much for "Big Annoucement"
« on: May 23, 2005, 01:19:42 pm »
Steve, you said on one of your Podcasts that Blizzard was going to make a big annoucement. Well...I didn't see it. All I found was some lame WoW update and Ghost multiplayer. Did I miss something here?

Could it be *GASP* they aren't ready to show it?

Yeah, well, my friend / game tester is giving me gripe about telling him Blizzard was about to announce a new game. I want to make sure they really are (which I'm sure they are, just take a look at how huge their hiring list is right now).

Yeah, I figured that would come back to haunt me. ;D

Basically WOW is taking up all of their time and semi driving them mad at the same time. The game was much much much more successful than they ever thought it would be, and it is taking up all of their time and effort. They have a few games in the works, and in a normal year they would have announced one of them, but WOW has taken over Blizzard. Until WOW settles down don't expect to see anything new from them.

On the brighter side they are still working on those games, they just haven't announced them yet.

Blizzard is having enough trouble with WoW; I doubt they're going to make another MMORPG.  :D

true, but WoW is making them lots of money, and if a WoD was to be releases, I wouldnt expect it for at least 2 more years

WOW took them 7+ years to make in total. If they are going to make another MMORPG it might be quite some time before they make another one.

Unless ... they take the engine from WOW and convert all the artwork into the Starcraft universe. That way they have the basic engine created and they just need to make all the content. Now that would be an idea...

I don't think anybody would want to play as a Carrier, though.

*shrugs*  carriers could be a velichle.  I've never liked mmorpg's before, but If they made a starcraft one, i'm sure i'd love every bit of it.

What an incredibly simple concept, but oh so appealing!
