Battle.net renamed Blizzard Battle.net

Battle.net renamed Blizzard Battle.net

Last September, Blizzard announced that it was moving away from the name Battle.net for its online platform. We understood that Battle.net stood for something special-it represents years of shared history and enjoyment, community and friendship, for all of us and our players.

Way back in September of previous year, Blizzard Entertainment announced that its Battle.net platform would be undergoing a name change. Now, the company is giving up on the initiative and returning to Battle.net branding.

In a blog post, Blizzard explained that it's forcing us to ride this rollercoaster of brands and emotions that's a flawless summation of life in the digital age because of fan feedback to the first name change. The Battle.net launcher became the Blizzard launcher, and we all became slightly hollow on the inside as a huge part of our gaming youth died.

Tesla Tiny House hits the road in Australia
The Powerwall sold by Tesla in Australia has successfully created a stir amongst some of its customers in the country. Tesla is no stranger to taking its products on the road to get them in front of potential buyers.

While pretty much everyone will still simply called the service Battle.net, this new official name will carry a new logo, making it clear to all that the somewhat generically named service is the work of Blizzard and not a third-party entity.

The new name will be used online both for the service and in all written notices from Blizzard. "Take it from the developer formerly known as Silicon & Synapse, and Chaos Studios, names are important too".

"Battle.net is the central nervous system for Blizzard games and the connective tissue that has brought Blizzard players together since 1996". StarCraft was the second title to utilize Battle.net (after Diablo), beginning in March 1998. This put Blizzard front and center like they wanted, while keeping Battle.net around for fans.
