The launch of Blizzard's remake of its 2002 RTS game, Warcraft 3, isn't going swimmingly. And the company's investors have noticed.
During today's Q4 earnings call, Blizzard president J. Allen Brack was asked about the game's rocky launch over a week ago, which has seen backlash from fans accusing it of performance issues, cutscenes visibly different from those shown at the game's 2018 announcement, changing popular elements of the original game, and an end user license agreement change that hurts the custom game community. The backlash grew strong enough that the game was review-bombed by users on Metacritic, resulting in an 0.5 out of 100 user score -- the lowest currently on the platform.
