SDCC 2012: Day Two
Some photos are starting to show up with Blizzard developers signing at the Insight Editions booth. Chris Metzen and Samwise Didier were signing The Art of Blizzard posters and books. Like it at the Insight Editions facebook.
Crave Online interviewed Sam Raimi at San Diego Comic Con. Raimi revealed he’s no longer the director of the World of Warcraft film. After he committed to direct “Oz, the Great and Powerful”, Blizzard decided to move forward with other plans for the film. The Warcraft film is still in development until further notice.
Brand ambassador Christina Sims interviews Christie Golden, author of World of Warcraft: Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects, about her latest book and writing in general!
USAOPOLY Risk: StarCraft ships on September 1. It contains 330 custom pieces featuring StarCraft units.
Blizzard previewed the unpainted Sideshow Collectibles Diablo III Statue prototype. It looks awesome.
Looks like the “The Art of Blizzard” Cocktail Party seems was fun. What were the devs drinking? Who knows. Cowboy Jim Raynor would certainly have taken Tequila down the intake. Toast!
