BlizzCon 2008 Jeff Frank Pearce Interview


Blizzard Co-founder Sigaty said was on hand at Blizzcon to answer quite a few questions from the IncGamers team. Wandering Goblin’s Pig conducted the interview which covers WoW, Diablo 2, SC2 and everything Blizzard related.

Frank commented on the BlizzCon event itself, how they prepare games for events like these, the MMO-inspiration in Diablo 3, WotLK Launch details, D3 development history and philosophy.

In addition to this, we get a few minimal comments on the FOURTH Blizzard project, and that StarCraft II will get the “Eye of Sauron” focused on the game development after WotLK launches. Just like Sigaty said, Battle.net is the great focus, together with Single Player, as the multiplayer aspect is more or less nailed. This is naturally also good news for Diablo 3, which will be heavily centred on co-op and Battle.net. Through the Battle.net we’ll also see achievements at launch of the games, and he denies any current plans of Battle.net fees.

The Head to head combat, that experience is solid, and were ready. That’s like our foundation. Now we have some very cool ideas we want to do for Battle.net, and some cool ideas we want to do for the single player, that we want to build around it, because we don’t want to just deliver the vanilla RTS experience, we want more for our players.

So, did Frank lend us $100? Watch the video and find out!
