    Blizzard North // Blizzard??

    I just loaded Diablo Dos a second ago, and for some reason-- maybe it's because I'm a little drunk-- I noticed that one of the loading screens (that we all invariably clicked through) says "Blizzard North," not just "Blizzard."

    Any of you Diablo-gurus want to point of the distinction for me? Has Blizzard always just been short for Blizzard North? Is Blizzard North just a branch of Blizzard? Does any of this matter? Can I ask anymore questions in this paragraph?

    I wikipedia'd blizzard north (yea, that's a verb now), and I got this page:
    Clickity-click-click

    Just never really spent any time looking at these intro screens, which is pretty ridiculous considering how many years I've playing this game. Diablo 1 ANYONE?!
    Godly Plate of the Whale!!!!

    Its just a subsidiary of blizzard. Ever heard of rockstar north? Its the same thing as rockstar. (company that makes the GTA series)

    So, who works on things like Starcraft 2 and WoW and whatnot? Are there other subsidiaries?

    Blizzard North is gone though, it's only plain Blizzard now.
    If I am not mistaken, the diablo franchise was the only thing being developed at Blizzard North.

    If you read on the wikipedia link blizzard north was just the bay area "team" I guess you will say. They probably thought of diablo and then created it but since it was only them who created it they choose a subsidiary name.
