Blizzard on Release Dates

Blizzard: ‘Who Knows’ When Diablo III Will Ship? on Techland has a bit from Rob Pardo on recent indications that Diablo III is a ways off. "We always announce all of our games too early," says the Blizzard executive video president, who admits this clarity has not helped them remedy the situation: "We realize that and go, ‘You know what? Next time we’re not going to do that.’ And then we always fail at that. But I’d rather fail at that than fail at making the game great. I think it’s safe to say that, yeah, (Diablo III) is not going to be out next year."

My apologies for that misquote. It was unintentional. Way to flip out on that one, saying i'm deliberately misrepresenting you and what not. You should read the stuff you write: "Fine. I'm arrogant because I believe good management is superior to bad management." Nice summary of what I wrote. You're arrogant and a hypocrite.

I have edited my post to reflect the changes:

" Good project management is often crucial for the fiscal viability of the project and the company overall. Because Blizzard can basically print money, they are afforded the luxury of basically not having any project management to speak of."

The point is still the same: Blizzard has put out 11 great products up to and including vanilla WOW, before WOW started making money. Are you saying they all got away with shitty management for all 11 projects, because Blizz was "printing money" since 1994?
