Blizzard files complaint to acquire ‘Heroes of Warcraft’ domain

Tuesday, 20th November 2012 10:59 GMT By Dave Cook

Blizzard has filed a complaint with the owner of web domain HeroesofWarcraft.com in order to acquire the URL for itself. It comes as the studio recently acquired WarcraftBattles.com, sparking chatter that a fourth Warcraft title could be in the works. Find out more below.

Fusible reports that Blizzard Entertainment has lodged a complaint with the National Arbritration Forum in order to gain control of the URL.

The complaint – Case No. 1470639 – challenges the current domain owner, who is allegedly based in the UK, as suggested by WHOIS records. This could just be part of Blizzard’s plan to cover its own back, but interestingly enough, Fusible adds that the studio also registered HeroesofWarcraft.co.uk recently, adding fuel to the Warcraft 4 rumour fire.

What do you make of this issue? Speak your brains below.

    Warcraft 4? O’rly?

    They have 10 million subscribers for WoW. They need to finish two expansion packs for SCII and maybe they need to start making Diablo III expansion packs + TITAN + Wow Expansion.

    Warcraft 4? Maybe in 2060 year.

    I agree with Erthazus, Blizzard need to finish and fix whats already out before starting Warcraft4. I personally think ‘Heroes of Warcraft’ sounds like a moba title.

    Only a rumour of WC4 gets me mega excited!! I love all Blizzard games, but the Warcraft RTS series is definitly my favourite.

    + Grubby, the second coming ;-)
