Valve says Windows 8 is a catastrophe. Blizzard doesn’t disagree. Blizzard executive vice president of game design Rob Pardo says Microsoft’s controversial new operating system also isn’t great for his company, which makes games like Diablo III and World of Warcraft.
“Nice interview with Gabe Newell — “I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space* — not awesome for Blizzard either,” Pardo wrote on Twitter earlier this week.
That’s two of the biggest companies in PC gaming both denouncing Windows 8, which will be out this October. Not a great sign for Microsoft.
