When Is A MMORPG Beta Not A Beta?
Hmm, who distributes Blizzard's games?
Blizzard is owned by, and distributed by Vivendi Universal Games. The thing with Blizzard is, they have *alot* of star power. They've acquired that power because of the success, both financial and critical, of their games. Its because of that power that Blizzard is essentially in control of the developer/publisher relationship, Vivendi does what Blizzard wants them to do, not the other way around (as is the case with 99% of developer/publisher relationships).
