  • Questions Answered at Stratics

    In a bi-monthly series, the team at Stratics has posted the results of their Q and A with the develiopers of World of Warcraft.

    Q. When designing quests do you use usability testing to see how different cultures would interpret them? - Douglas Meinhardt from the Uldum realm.

    A. Localization and usability are one of our top priorities when we design quests.We have dedicated localization teams who translate game content for each region. When something is found to be off color or unidentifiable, they make changes to insure that the text works in that particular region.

  • The Empire Strikes Back

    Blizzard developers on the World of Warcraft forums are saying that there are no "announced" plans to do additional Blizzard MMORPGs based on the Diablo and Starcraft franchises, and rumors are blatantly untrue.

    "I believe this [rumour] was a misquote," said Drysc. "We haven't announced any specific development plans beyond the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft,
    and we don't have any intentions to focus on only one genre or platform with our future games."

    "Nothing in that rumour is true in regards to Blizzard," added EnoYls. "If I had to guess, there was some confusion between what Vivendi has planned for its its game division versus what Blizzard has planned. While Blizzard is owned by Vivendi, their game division operates separately from Blizzard."

    So Vivendi owns Blizzard, Blizzard is the number one cash cow, yet Vivendi takes nothing more than a philosophical interest in Blizzard's plans. Yea, ok.

    In any case, Boomtown has the scoop of Blizzard's case of denial.

  • It looks like WoW is the MMO for Blizzard. However, one can never tell can they?

    I believe this was a misquote. We haven't announced any specific development plans beyond the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, and we don't have any intentions to focus on only one genre or platform with our future games.

    This was found on the WoW General Discussion Forums today.

    We have our own conversation going on about about it right here. Tell us what you think!
