Blizzard sticking with PC gaming

Games publishing powerhouse Blizzard has said that while the PC faces a lot of challenges as a games platform, it refuses to turn its back on it, following the launch of the highly anticipated StarCraft 2 late last month.

Mike Ryder VP and Managing Director International Operations told sister site PCR:

"Its certainly not written off by us. PC development has a number of unique challenges that console developers don’t face, but Blizzard is one of the few companies that is there making great PC games.

"We’ve spent a lot of time in development focussing on scalablity, on new PC hardware and old. If you were just designing for a console it would be a much easier task."

Last month Blizzard told MCV that future console game projects remain a possibility.
