So is The9 dumping WoW for Warhammer?

Dorjan4004d ago

How odd. How did they "fall out" I wonder?

AndyA4004d ago

Money, I suspect. Blizzard is going to want to squeeze every last penny out of its cash cow.

Maticus4004d ago

Are they really in a position to now though? WoW is 4 years old.

Dorjan4004d ago

That's not really that old really and the fact that there must be a big player base in China, I can see why they would ask for more money to host WoW.

Blizzard probably said no and that's why...

Maticus4004d ago

The9 can hold Blizzard to ransom over WotLK though.
