According to news from 17173.com, the biggest online games portal in China, Blizzard is likely to purchase a Chinese web game named Dragon's Call and adapt it into a client-based MMO. The new MMO is said to be the next title of Blizzard.
As an insider disclosed, Dragon's Call has achieved great success in overseas market, which thus leads to Blizzard's interest in its Chinese developer.
According to the industry analysis, Blizzard-made games are enjoying high popularity around the world and Blizzard has occupied a dominant position in the online game market, but thanks to the manpower and regional restrictions, its product line and market development can't keep up with the trends. So Blizzard is likely to take the opportunity of purchasing Dragon's Call to march into the fast-growing web game market.
Haha, must be April Fools. Happy April Fool's Day, guys.
