Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Blizzard Working on Redneck Rampage??

redneckO.K. I know exactly what you brain is doing right now. Blizzard = Polished, high quality, serious titles. Redneck Rampage = mayhem, complete lunacy.

Blizzard + Redneck Rampage =….. Does Not Compute.

Well my friends, things are not as they seem.
Redneck Rampage was developed in 1998 by Interplay. Later the rights to the franchise were bought, in 2004, by Vivendi Universal. The game ended up landing at Blizzard.

O.K. so that’s a start but the real kicker is this. Several of Blizzard employees actually worked on Redneck Rampage, including the Senior Producer for The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King and Level Designer for the defunct StarCraft: Ghost.

So is this all completely crazy? maybe but it’ll certainly be fun to watch.
