Remember that leaked release schedule from Blizzard that made the rounds on the web a few weeks ago? Well, it turns out that it’s real. It was leaked out of Blizzard China and the general manager of that division fell on his sword this past week over the incident.
That essentially means that we can expect to see at least two expansions to Diablo III, an elaborate new Battle.net map store for StarCraft II, and Blizzard’s next MMO project is something called Titan. Of course, the actual hard release dates for the games identified in the leak could change based on progress – but knowing that they exist is enough for me.
Having a hard time finishing the campaign in StarCraft II?
You’re not alone – and Blizzard would rather you not resort to using a trainer. In fact, it’s a ban on your account if you get caught doing so, even in single player. That’s why they’ve released all of the cheats that exist for the game on their official blog.
This footage is almost enough to make me want to play again. Almost.
Only four more days to go until release.
Check out the image below. It’s supposedly a leaked release schedule for Blizzard games through 2014. There are some very interesting dates and names on the list.
In typical Blizzard fashion, they’re refusing to comment on the image.
Blizzard has all but publicly confirmed that Diablo III will be coming to either the Xbox 360 or the PS3. The proof is on their employment page.
I wonder how long it will be before they release a statement on this?
At Blizzcon 2010 this past weekend, Blizzard founder Mike Morhaime dropped lots of big news on StarCraft II fans. Sometime in the next few months, four official mods will be released for the game via Battle.net. They are as follows:
- Auir Chef – Cooking and killing on the battlefield.
- Left 2 Die – A Left 4 Dead style co-op survival game.
- StarJeweled – An SC2 themed Bejeweled game. (And why not?)
- Blizzard DotA – A space-themed take on the popular WarCraft III mod.
This sounds interesting, to say the least.
As many of you know, Blizzcon 2010 was this past weekend. Blizzard dropped a lot of new details about Diablo III, the most interesting of which was the announcement of the new character class – the Demon Hunter.
You can check out a gameplay video on YouTube.
Blizzard just released the intro cinematic for the next World of WarCraft expansion, Cataclysm. It looks like we’re one of the first sites on the web to post this today. Awesome.
Blizzard is really serious about stopping cheaters in StarCraft II. In fact, they’ve hauled the three authors of the hacks that resulted in thousands of bans last week into court. They apparently take issue with the fact that the programmers were profiting from sales of their applications – a direct violation of Blizzard’s end-user license agreement.
When Blizzard declared war on cheaters a few months back, they really meant it. In one of the boldest moves the gaming industry has seen in recent years, they’ve started banning people for cheating in the single player campaign.
Their reasoning is simple: single player achievements carry over to the multiplayer side of the game and, therefore, those who cheat in the campaign mode are technically cheating in the multiplayer mode as well.
This is going to have huge ramifications if the bans are upheld.
