What Is Blizzard (Battle.net)?
Blizzard Entertainment developed Battle.net, an internet-based social networking service, online game, digital rights management, and digital distribution platform. This unique service was established on December 31, 1996.
A few days after the launch, i.e., on January 3, 1997, Blizzard released Diablo, a stunning action-role-playing video game. Battle.net was formally renamed ‘Blizzard Battle.net’ in August 2017. But this change was reverted in January 2021.
Blizzard Battle.net is the first online gaming service directly incorporated into the games that utilize it. This was in contrast to the popular external interfaces other online services used at the time. The ease of creating accounts alongside this feature and no member fees made it popular among gamers.
Activision Blizzard owns Blizzard Entertainment. The latter is the publisher of the Warcraft franchise. Other titles Blizzard has created include StarCraft, the Diablo dungeon crawler series, etc.
Within the third quarter of 2022, up to 31 million monthly active users accessed Blizzard Entertainment gaming titles.
