Blizzcon's Opening Ceremony - MMORPG.com

Blizzcon is set to officially kick off in just over half hour with the Opening Ceremonies, usually a spot where the first major announcements for Blizzard titles is made. We'll be updating this post throughout the 45-minute presentation so keep refreshing the page and let us know what you think.

And we're off! The first video is a chat with developers talking about the astounding success that Blizzard has experienced since its first games launched twenty plus years ago.

"We might have somethin' kinda special here..." speaking of WoW.

"It's the community that has made this the most amazing experience."

Morheim speaks obliquely about Gamergate and how Blizzard will not allow players to be tarnished by the bad behavior of others.

"The best is yet to come for World of Warcraft. We're excited about it. We're taking you to places and settings that brought us to where we are."
