Today I'm leaving for Blizzard's third Worldwide Invitational being held in Seoul, South Korea this weekend. It's a public event for fans (and hordes of media outlets) to celebrate the wondrous collection of Blizzard's ever-popular computer game franchises: Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft. In addition to tournaments pitting Korea's best gamers against international players, there will also be various panels, interview sessions, and a big, big announcement. What's this big announcement, you ask?
As typical in the gaming industry, plenty of rumors have made the rounds on blog after blog after blog about what it might be. Regardless of what it is, fans of Blizzard's games should be excited for whatever is coming next. So wish me luck on this incredible journey; apparently, it's a 14-hour flight from New York City to Seoul. Not to mention a 13-hour time difference... Gah. See you after the time warp.
