Blizzard files complaint to acquire 'Heroes of Warcraft' domain

Blizzard has filed a complaint with the owner of web domain in order to acquire the URL for itself. It comes as the studio recently acquired, 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 recently, adding fuel to the Warcraft 4 rumour fire.
