Warcraft III on the way

RTS sequel goes gold, July 5th European release

Blizzard's latest real-time strategy game Warcraft III : Reign Of Chaos has gone gold, publisher Vivendi Universal confirmed today. Apparently a ludicrous 4.5m copies of the game have already been ordered by anxious retailers, which would make this one of the fastest selling games of all time if it meets expectations. "We're very excited to announce that development of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos has been completed and that gamer and retail demand will make this the largest launch in gaming history", Blizzard's president Mike Morhaime beamed. Warcraft III is expected to appear on shelves across Europe on July 5th. Given the huge number of copies being shipped to retail, it should be hard to miss.
