About Blizzard Entertainment
Blizzard Entertainment is a video game publisher and developer founded in 1991. It was founded by three UCLA alumni, Allen Adham, Frank Pearce and Michael Morhaime. Blizzard’s largest products are the Diablo, StarCraft and Warcraft series. The first Warcraft video game was released in 1994. It was immediately regarded as one of the best video games of its time. Warcraft II: Reign of Chaos, released in 1995, received Blizzard’s first Game of the Year award. The original Diablo game was released in the last week of 1996. It debuted as the #1 seller in the United States. The sequel, released in 2000, became the fastest-selling computer game of the time. The first StarCraft video game was released in 1998 and was the best selling video game of the year. Many of Blizzard’s games, especially Diablo are credited with shifts in the video game business. Diablo changed RPG or role player games forever. Warcraft would become World of Warcraft, one of the largest and most profitable MMORPGs in the world. An MMORPG is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.
Blizzard Entertainment has encountered issues with privacy in its history. In 2010, Blizzard started requiring forum users to use their real names online. After a huge backlash, the change was retracted. They were also sued for collecting data without permission through StarCraft discs.
