While it may be nothing more than a defensive registration to protect its Warcraft brand, Blizzard Entertainment this week registered the domain WarcraftBattles.com.
The name had at one time been registered to a Massachusetts man back in 2007, but it expired in 2009 and became available again, according to Whois historical records.
Blizzard registered WarcraftBattles.com (Whois) on October 10, 2012, two weeks after the company’s release of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria on September 25, 2012 and only days after hackers hit World of Warcraft resulting in a massive amount of virtual deaths.
It is not known whether the company has plans for Warcraft: Battles yet.
At the time of this story, the domain does not resolve to a web page.
