Boring.

Yea, seriously....

"We've been working on a little something, different from our other games" - - -

And even so, it's set in the Warcraft universe, LOL. Different from their other games yet part of the only 3 franchises they have. Are they afraid of making a new IP or what? Outside of Starcraft, Diablo and Warcraft. Diablo of which they didn't even technically make (Blizzard North)

Blizzard are rapidly moving from a 'Day 1 purchase, no questions asked' developer, to a 'Wait and see if it's any good and probably not bother' developer.

WoW... Got boring years ago
Starcraft 2 - Pre-ordered... Ok, but ultimately disappointing
Diablo 3 - Pre-ordered... Mediocre and frustrating game
Starcraft 2 expansion... Pass
Hearthstone... Pass
Titan... Expectations reduced massively

Totally agree, isn't this thing heading to ipad also? to me that just smells like it fell from the top of the micro transaction tower and landed on the back of a micro transaction truck that was heading for micro transaction city.

Called it. Seriously, I said it would be a mobile game when they teased it like a week ago. Anything for a taste of that iTunes money, I suppose.

I was excited to attend this but after being turned away for the theater being full im glad knowing what the game is

I guess there will never be a WC4, a shame.
Perjoss  +   710d ago
There will but it will be called WarCraft 4: Modern Orcfare

Lol, nice...and soon after Activision will insist on yearly releases, with the next one being Blizz on Duty: World @ Warcraft
Mikeyy  +   710d ago
They will purposely delay WC4 another 6 years because they don't want it to compete with SC2.

Diablo 3 is weak sauce right now but the new development direction is promising.

None of my friends are complaining about SC2. So I'm assuming that game is going pretty solid. I have yet to get the x-pac though.
