    BLIZZARD IS CHANGING, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR US?



    Blizzard is slowing losing their war to Activision, you can see it in their stock, their recent gaming decisions and their focus on the bottom dollar. So what does this mean for World of Warcraft & Co?
    I can't see the future, but it's not looking too bright for Blizzard.

    I tend to think people blow things way out of proportion, but even I can see the writing on the wall. The guy in the video actually thinks its a good thing, but what worries me the most is the declaration of having shorter development cycles. It's a doubly whammy, not only do they want to pump games out faster, they will not support games for as long either. The extra time Blizzard takes to make their games right is part of what is so good about them. Very few video game companies have had that privilege.
