Blizzard needed a win today. Far be it for me to suggest a few video game announcements are enough to dispel the controversy around Blizzard’s censure of Hearthstone pro Wai Chung “blitzchung” Ng. It shouldn’t be—and for some it won’t be. Nevertheless, the industry’s memory is notoriously short, and when you desperately need to shrug off a month of poor public relations, a month wherein both the community and the United States Congress have condemned you?
Well, it helps to announce some video games.
Blizzard announced a handful at BlizzCon 2019, or at least confirmed the rumors—Diablo IV, Overwatch 2, and World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. We’ve got details and trailers below.
