Blizzard Entertainment takes ownership of mysterious Heroes of Warcraft domain

Blizzard Entertainment has taken ownership of the domain HeroesofWarcraft.com. Back in November 2012, the gaming company filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) against the owner, setting off speculation about the company’s future plans and rumblings that Warcraft IV might be in the works. The dispute for the domain name was won by Blizzard Entertainment, but not in the traditional sense. Instead of waiting on a decision to be handed down by the NAF arbitration panel, the complaint (Case No. 1470639) was withdrawn and the original owner transferred the name to Blizzard this week. The WHOIS record now shows “BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT, INC.” as the registrant. It’s unknown how the two sides arrived at an agreement or whether any money exchanged hands. So, what is Heroes of Warcraft? (Blizzard Entertainment, PC, WarCraft IV, Warcraft series)
