It's the calm before the "Con". GDC is next week, which means MMOG news is slow. Oh, but Blizzard is throwing a party in Paris, Marvel Universe is officially canceled and Warhammer Online might see a few classes drop by the wayside.

Make no mistake, the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational 2008 isn't BlizzCON, but with no dates set for a BlizzCON 2008 and no word as yet whether it will happen this might be your only chance to get your Blizz on this year.

"The 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational is a two-day event bringing together the company and gamers in a convention atmosphere, featuring Q&A panels with Blizzard Entertainment developers and hands-on opportunities with the company’s latest games. The Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational also showcases the skills of top eSports gamers from around the world as they compete in invitational StarCraft, Warcraft III and World of Warcraft Arena tournaments."

Spiderman, spiderman, does whatever a spider can, except make his way into a MMOG. Microsoft has once again scrapped a title that many (including the staff at Ten Ton Hammer) expected to be a hit.  

While talking to MTVBlog Shane Kim, head of Microsoft Game Studios had this interesting bit to say about the demise of Marvel Universe.
