The D.I.C.E. Summit's official site
describes the event, currently taking place in Las Vegas, as a meeting of "the video game industry's most influential leaders," so of course you know Blizzard's there. Gamesindustry.biz's coverage of Mike Morhaime's presentation
today doesn't reveal anything too earth-shattering about the company or the World of Warcraft. It's about the same thing we've heard from him in the past, but hey, if the presentation isn't broke, don't fix it, right?
It's still good to hear that Blizzard's on the right track, of course, and it's actually amazing that even with Mike Morhaime
about to get his eighth boss
, Blizzard's stayed pretty consistent on quality and dependability, as almost anyone who's had to switch bosses can tell you. But it looks like that, even with the Activision merger
, we can expect the same tradition of long development cycles leading to quality games, which is, if familiar news, also comforting news.
