WTH: Blizzcon Tickets Sold Out!

Via CVG: A suspicious press release is doing the rounds this morning claiming that Blizzard has managed to completely sell out its annual Warcraft gathering, BlizzCon 2010 – despite the fact tickets haven’t gone on sale yet.

According to the – yes, blatantly fake – PR, Blizzard saw such a demand that the callers to its tech support hotline were offered the opportunity to “purchase advance tickets as a thank you for their patience with the 3-4 hour phone hold times”.

It reads: “‘We didn’t intend to sell all of them already, but I guess the vast, password-losing World of Warcraft community spread the word, and one thing led to another,’ said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment, speaking from his new yacht.”

Ed. Must be an April Fools’ joke 🙂
