  21. If you're getting a bit bored playing Overwatch's current set of maps, I have good news for you: the game's director, Jeff Kaplan, mentioned in the Overwatch forums on Battle.net that the team currently has three new maps in development for Quick Play and Competitive modes. Kaplan also said they've passed the initial playtesting phase but cautioned that "something could always change." In the event that everything works out, he said that a release this year was "likely." Of course, that's not the only thing the Overwatch team is working on; Kaplan mentioned that three non-standard maps (not QP or Competitive) were also in the works along with various other experiments. Considering that seasonal events have kept the fanbase engaged over the last year, it seems pretty likely that potential new events are part of those experiments. Overwatch's latest seasonal event Uprising began just a few weeks ago, in which players experience a pivotal moment right before the fall of Overwatch.

    Blizzard moving away from its Battle.net moniker

    If you're a longtime Blizzard fan, chances are that Battle.net is a moniker that is instantly recognizable and has some history with you. Unfortunately, it looks as if you'll have to get used to a new name for Blizzard's online service sometime soon. In a recent blog post on their website, Blizzard explained that they'll be transitioning away from the Battle.net name and instead refer to it as Blizzard tech instead, giving such examples as "Blizzard Streaming" and "Blizzard Voice" being two names they're currently using for certain functions. However, they were quick to note that Battle.net technology will still be at the heart of everything; it's just that the name is changing. So why the name change? Blizzard cited confusion and inefficiencies associated with having two separate identities, so it's not difficult to see why they might want to have everything fall under one umbrella now. On a similar note, Battle.net will be celebrating its 20th anniversary on November 30. It first began operation when with the release of Diablo and was further bolstered by the release of StarCraft two years later. Source: WorldofWarcraft.com What are your thoughts on Blizzard moving away from the Battle.net name? Are you sad to see it go?
  23. Just a few months back, word had gotten out that development on Blizzard's next big MMO project, codenamed "Titan" (not to be confused with EA's upcoming Titanfall), was entirely reset and starting over from the beginning. Now, during a financial call today, Activision CEO Mike Morhaime said that the project may not even be an subscription based-MMORPG anymore, according to Joystiq. Instead, Morhaime mentioned that they were still in the process of deciding what direction they want to go in with the project and are re-envisioning what they want it to be. No further details were given, and no release window was made mention of. It almost seems from the outside as if little progress has been made since the project's reset in May. Will we ever see Titan? Who knows at this point; it could just as easily become the company's next StarCraft Ghost (read: vaporware) given its troubled development so far.
  24. Things are getting pretty complex in the world of gaming with all these companies buying and selling each other. Well, at least one company has managed to take ownership of themselves again. Activison Blizzard, who was owned under Vivendi, has just made the move to buy themselves back. How much was Activision Blizzard worth? Well they paid out a heaping $5.83 billion dollars to nab 429 million shares of stock in the company. Vivendi still has 83 million shares themselves, though, which is over 10%. In any case, Activision Blizzard is now an independent studio, although of course no one would call them "indie". Here is what Activision CEO Bobby Kotick says about the split from Vivendi: "These transactions together represent a tremendous opportunity for Activision Blizzard and all its shareholders, including Vivendi. We should emerge even stronger – an independent company with a best-in-class franchise portfolio and the focus and flexibility to drive long-term shareholder value and expand our leadership position as one of the world's most important entertainment companies. The transactions announced today will allow us to take advantage of attractive financing markets while still retaining more than $3 billion cash on hand to preserve financial stability." Hopefully this move proves beneficial to all the teams involved, but we'll see.
  25. Always-on DRM has proven to be a major security measure used by certain big companies as a way to combat piracy. Though results of a title using it has varied results, there have been quite a number of titles that have suffered (or are suffering in the case of SimCity) from this feature that requires a constant internet connection in order to play. Of course, issues with servers crashing have also played a role in the negative reception. Below are just a few of the recent games to be put in the spotlight due to messed up servers and the always-on DRM. Star Wars: The Old Republic There are very few people who couldn't tell you what comes to mind when you say 'Star Wars.' In fact, I bet the thoughts of light saber battles, Darth Vader's signature look and sound, and the wise Yoda are rushing to your head right now. Star Wars: The Old Republic was a MMO set within the Star Wars universe that allowed players to choose between two factions: the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Star Wars: The Old Republic had a very rocky launch in which players had to wait in ungodly long queues just to access the game. Not to mention, a few who pre-ordered the title found that the registration codes included were invalid. When BioWare was able to get the servers running smoothly, the game reached over 1 million players within the first few days of its launch. Due to a decrease in its subscriptions in the months following the release, though, Star Wars: The Old Republic abandoned its monthly fees for a free-to-play style. Diablo 3 A title that had been in development for over ten years, Diablo 3 had many worried about how well it would turn out. Taking place twenty years after the events of Diablo 2, you control a character who offers to help Leah and her uncle Deckard Cain as they try to unravel an ominous prophecy. Divided into acts, players are able to explore different locations either by themselves or with others. Surely, you would think that Diablo 3 would follow in the steps of its predecessor and not require a constant internet connection. This is not the case and due to this requirement, Diablo 3's launch was marred with overpopulated servers and game bugs. Blizzard asked players to be patient. To give the servers time to get stable. SimCity SimCity, the latest entry in the popular Maxis series, uses the new GlassBox engine and reboots the series. It was known from the beginning that EA had planned to use the always-on DRM regardless of whether you planned to play with friends or not. Having the constant internet connection just to be able to play the game is also a feature (or rather, downside) EA implemented into the game. If you've been reading any of the many video game publications or follow a bunch of gamers on Twitter, it is a safe bet that you know that EA's latest title has been plagued with servers being down or so busy that no one's been able to play. When the game's servers first went live, everyone excitedly went to install the game so that they could build cities from the ground up. This caused one of the worse game launches in recent history as many were forced to wait hours just to start the game. Even then, if the server crashes while you are working on your city then there is a good chance your progress, or entire city, will be lost. Many took to Twitter and the EA forums to voice their dissatisfaction. While EA has added some new servers and disabled features that most use, this hasn't helped much. Another thing that doesn't help is that EA has made it clear that those who purchased their copy of the game digitally cannot get a refund.
