    Now that is some crazy timing... The new WC3 expansion is going to fly off the shelves, according to the guy handling the preorders at my local EB.

    Big BAD news for Blizzard fans. [​IMG]

    I'm really looking forward to Ghost - I hope this doesn't have a huge negative effect on that game. Hmmm...World of Warcraft also...

    Agreed, very bad news. I had read some discontent stories at blizzard in other forums, but figured they were specualtion.

    Does anyone know how large Blizzard is these days?

    Side note: Rock n' Roll racing fr GBA, awesome...

    Keep in mind that 3 of the 4 are from Blizzard North, who have primarily done the Diablo games (although I can't recall what they're current project is... if it's even been announced yet. They aren't doing WOW are they?).

    I can't see how their leaving would possibly affect Ghost in any way.

    Bill Roper though... it's hard to know. He was a producer who's hands were in every game that Blizzard released. Obviously he wasn't the lead on any of these projects, but it's hard to know just what his leaving may change.

    Certainly they'll need a new spokesperson as Billy was the one who did most interviews and PR for Blizzard.

    I will miss Bill though, and the voices and personality he provided to both the games and the company.

    Nah this isn't bad news for Blizzard, it's good news for us... give em 2 years and we'll get another outfit like Blizzard [​IMG]

    I'm sure they left cuz they want to do something original and not just more WarCraft, StarCraft and Diablo stuff.

    The head honchos of Blizzard are still in charge [​IMG]
