February 14, 2008
You may remember this post from a few days ago, about Blizzard @ dice 2008. Well, there's some interesting new info on the mtv multiplayer blog which explains the following :

Pearce: It never was technically canceled. It’s just a focus thing for us right now. We’ve got a finite amount of development resources and a lot of different things that we want to focus on so there’s always the possibility, but right now we’re spending our time on “World of Warcraft” and our expansion “Wrath of the Lich King” and “StarCraft II.”

So it seems it's just temporarily on hold while blizzard puts their resources into WotLK and SC-II. Good news for many.

Wow on your phone?

In side news, blizzard "might" come up with some sort of wow plugin for your mobile, perhaps iphone.

Frank pearce explains that it's not a warcraft clone or fully functional gameplay emulator for your phone. However, he states that several warcraft programmers are working on a way to "improve the game experience". what this means exactly is anyone's guess. Some speculation and rumors have already circulated however, among these would be the ability to view your ingame mails trough your regular email, checking your auction status by mobile phone, perhaps even reading guild chat trough instant messaging or irc. The options are limitless.
