For those of you who do not know, World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG). It is played over the internet and a monthly fee is associated with it. WoW has been in development for 3+ years and a lot of fans (including your host, me) have been anxiously awaiting its arrival. Blizzard have been skeptical giving a firm date because they have been known to make games that are quality and breakthrough products, no matter how long it takes.
Could this finally be? Certinaly Blizzard downplayed the news and even started deleting and closing threads related to this news. But if the publisher and the author of this article is to believed, WoW is coming. I can see why Blizzard is hesitant to give this news their support since, I believe, Vivendi Universal (VU), the publisher for WoW, is pushing Blizzard to release WoW. Everquest 2 (EQ2) is being released on Nov 8th and I think that is why VU wants Blizzard to release WoW soon after so it doesnt lose the chance to score some big fans.
Let's hope Blizzard don't cave into the VU's pressure and release a quality product.
