The brains behind World of Warcraft have created a video podcast.
Blizzard Entertainment is sharing its development process in a monthly video podcast set to launch the first week of January. The first show will include interviews with StarCraft 2 Art Director Sam Didier and World of Warcraft Lead Designer Jeff Kaplan.
The show will cover the development of Starcraft 2 and Wrath of the Lich King in addition to community content and insight into the developers. Fans can submit questions to Blizzard community leaders Karune and Nethaera through fansites.
Blizzard’s announcement reads:
This is an amazing effort that will bring the developers and the community closer. The best of it all is that each BlizzCast (video podcast) transcript will be fully localized to many supported languages reaching hundreds of thousands of Blizzard fans across the globe. This is basically a monthly BlizzCon presentation broadcasted directly to you via hot-download. The audience of BlizzCast Episode 1 and upcoming episodes will be monitored. This is an experimental in-house project. The more fan audience supporting these BlizzCast episodes, the better it will get, as more resources will be put to produce future episodes with full coverage of the development cycles of Starcraft 2, future World of Warcraft expansions and content patches, as well as the two unannounced games. Spread the word across forums online, and share the hype to encourage production of BlizzCast episodes for years to come.
