    The Hunger Games innovative social media campaign

    The Hunger Games is quickly becoming the most anticipated movie this summer. Early sales have placed the movie in the charts as the top pre-sale movie.

    Blizzard announced today via a press release that the company is strategically reducing its worldwide staff by about 600, with 10% of that coming from departments related to game development. World of Warcraft‘s development team won’t be touched. “Constant evaluation of teams and processes is necessary for the long-term health of any business. Over the last several years, we’ve grown our organization tremendously and made large investments in our infrastructure in order to better serve our global community. However, as Blizzard and the industry have evolved we’ve also had to make some difficult decisions in order to address the changing needs of our company,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Knowing that, it still does not make letting go of some of our team members any easier. We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to work with the people impacted by today’s announcement, we’re proud of the
