Blizzard timeline celebrates 20 years of history

By Alice O'Connor, Jul 05, 2012 2:00pm PDT

As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, Blizzard has whipped up a timeline documenting the history of the company and its games. From platformer Blackthorne to comic book fighting game Justice League Task Force, it's all there. Oh, and that StarCraft, Diablo, and Warcraft jazz and whatnot.

The timeline is a fine stroll down memory lane, though a little light on details. And if you've ever been uncertain about how exactly Blizzard became part of Activision, the many steps are laid out.

It is a little too clean, though, with nary a mention of cancelled projects like sneaky shooter StarCraft Ghost and comic adventure game WarCraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans. While we can surely trust Blizzard's decisions to kill them, it'd be nice to see something of these projects which did once excite fans so.
