Blizzard Investor Chat Includes AoC and Launch Info

Posted Fri, Aug 01, 2008 by Medeor

Blizzard discusses competition and launch time frame for Lich King.

As reported on Shacknews during yesterday's investor call with Activision Blizzard, Michael Morhaime talked around the short-term effects Age of Conan's launch had on WoW's numbers, focusing more on the percentage that came back than the real numbers:

"Age of Conan released with some initial success," Morhaime noted. "We did see some of our players leave, [but] about 40% of those players have returned to World of Warcraft."

Also in the article, Morhaime discusses the competition but claimed immunity from providing launch time frames for Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 citing solar flares, or competitive reasons, I forgot which.

Read the rest of the sparse information shared by Morhaime in the article Blizzard Talks AoC.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
