Has Blizzard Issued Web Version of World of Warcraft?

Postby maomao85 » Tue Jul 06, 2010 5:44 am

Nowadays, game industry presents a picture of diversification. By means of low production budget, short R&D period, frequent patch release and no downloading client, web games have won the favor from vast players promptly.
It is definitely that web game, as a new game style, has emerged. And industry insiders believe web game will share more and more market. Through this phenomenon, some people predict that many large-scale MMORPG games and leisure games will be impacted by web game market, including global famous MMORPG World of Warcraft.
In reality, relevant executives in Blizzard Entertainment have revealed that with more and more prominent web games arising, the market of World of Warcraft is bound to be influenced greatly. There is no doubt they not only expressed crisis awareness to themselves, but predicted the future of web games.
So how will Blizzard Entertainment cope with such crisis?
Recently, a web game-World of Lordcraft was reported to have emerged. We can easily find the name of this game is almost same with World of Warcraft. Even we can find the reflection of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft and Ubisoft’s Heroes of Might and Magic in this game’s system. Besides, the theme of this game is similar with World of Warcraft.
We had to suspect that whether World of Warcraft has issued a web version. After all, there are many same elements between these two games and Blizzard Entertainment themselves has acknowledged the impact from web game market to them. In addition, Blizzard has made a simple web game in Children’s day. Players can just open website and start game without registration.
From above information, we may guess Blizzard Entertainment has developed web version of World of Warcraft--the most successful online game of Blizzard Entertainment. However, there are two doubts we can not confirm. The first is, as the one of top international game company, why Blizzard Entertainment marched into web game market without any sign. In contrast, Blizzard should ballyhoo to strive for good market effect. The second is, in World of Lordcraft official site, there is no information about Blizzard Entertainment, and the developer is called Thunderstorm Entertainment Inc.
Whether World of Lordcraft was developed by another company, which has nothing to do with Blizzard Entertainment and just use World of Warcraft as a reference?

Very interesting :)
It appears like a shameless rip of World of Warcraft at first glance :teehee: but I'm sure that if Blizzard hasn't had involvement and don't like it, I'll bet it won't be online for long. We'll have to wait and see I guess.
