Bill Roper Talks Warcraft History
8:06 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Diabloii.net has posted a short interview with Bill Roper, former vice president of Blizzard Entertainment. The interview focuses on his work on Blizzard's legendary strategy game series WarCraft and also mentions some on the creation of the popular Diablo series as well.

From the interview:

With one game already under your belt, was your mindset for the second game, Diablo, any different?

BR: The mindset was really the same - to make the best game possible. We have always kept the game first and foremost in our minds, no matter the genre. Probably the biggest difference with Diablo was the introduction of battle.net, which was borne out of what was best for the game, but was also very different than anything we had ever done before.

To read the full interview, follow the link provided below.

Bill Roper left Blizzard Entertainment together with some of the other people behind Diablo last summer to found the new gaming studio Flagship Studios. There they are currently working on their first title, which is still veiled in secrecy. We will keep you informed as more information about this title is revealed.
