About Blizzard Entertainment:
Blizzard Entertainment Inc. (formerly named Silicon & Synapse) is an American video game developer and publisher. As of July 10, 2008 they are a division of Activision Blizzard.
Blizzard is perhaps most famous for its series of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games in the Warcraft and World of Warcraft series. Blizzard was originally founded in 1991 under the name Silicon & Synapse and is currently a subsidiary of Activision Blizzard. As well as the hit Warcraft games, Blizzard also created the successful Starcraft and Diablo series. In 2008 Blizzard's World of Warcraft was estimated to hold an incredible 62% share of the MMORPG subscription market. Today Blizzard is respected and well known for producing well designed entertainment experiences with an unparalleled reputation for quality.
Blizzard's three main intellectual properties include the Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo franchises. Each franchise boasts an impressive, and almost "cult-like" following of fans, that have made Blizzard one of the most easily recognizable names in the gaming industry today.
Blizzard currently has several known games in development: StarCraft II (Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void), World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria and their "Next-Gen" MMO Titan.
In July 2008 Vivendi Games, who owned Blizzard Entertainment, merged with game publisher Activision. Using Blizzard's name as a marketing tool to promote the company and deal as a merger and not a direct buyout, named the resulting company Activision Blizzard.
