2008 Blizzard Invitational Hits Paris in June

12
Blizzard Entertainment announced its plans to hold its fourth Worldwide Invitational in Paris, France on June 28 and 29.

Similar to previous years, the event will feature invite-only tournaments for StarCraft, Warcraft III and World of Warcraft, as well as discussion panels, artist and developer signings, and wallet-destroying merchandise. Blizzard's upcoming StarCraft II and World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King will also be available for hands-on demonstration.

Blizzard officially announced StarCraft II at last year's Worldwide Invitational in Seoul, South Korea. Though news of the sequel was the first and only major announcement to come out of the Invitational's three-year history, the studio currently has at least one unannounced title in development—perhaps another surprise is forthcoming.

Tickets for the Worldwide Invitational will go on sale in the next few weeks, priced at 70 EUR or roughly $102. More details on ticket booking, events and other information will be released on the Invitational's official website.

    All I care about is... does this mean Lich King ain't hitting until at least July?!

    Come on, Blizz. :(

      Well, what do you expect? 2.4 isn't even out yet and that contains a brand new 5 and 25 man raid dungeon. Usually, new stuff doesn't hit till at least 6 months after such a content release. I'd probably bet on WOLK released more towards Fall time if anything.

        I expect them to feed me new toys faster.

        I am rapidly losing patience with this stringing me along nonsense and will definitely be unsubscribing if they don't remedy this within the next few months.

        And by months I of course mean years.
