Delaying titles more then they already do would be more painful then releasing when ready I think.

Hehe, Frank PEarce is so cool :)

Blizzard has the eternal cash cow, WoW. Why be fazed? :P

Bandreus3071d ago

Every game Blizzard rolls out is a cash cow. Even DII is still selling these days. And of course WoW just ends up being the largest of those Cows

Cows? Blizzard and Cows? oh the Irony. lol
