Blizzard Buys IPL!

Blizzard buys IPL according to IGN. But what are Blizzard’s plans for the future of IPL?

Today IGN confirmed that Blizzard bas bought the IGN Pro League (IPL). After the drama ofIPL 6 being cancelled, it is no surprise that IPL was having some issues. The article to confirm this sale comes straight from IGN itself. Staff, technology, and assets have now changed hands.

With the IPL and the all related assets now absorbed into Blizzard existing members of IPL’s staff will help form a new team of web-content providers. Located in San Francisco, this restructured team’s “primary focus will be on creating high-quality web and mobile content in support of Blizzard games.” Additionally, Blizzard has stated that it has “no plans to continue operation of the IPL business.”

IPL, as it was, is now officially shut down.

CONsent: The Importance of Treating Cosplayers with Respect.

So the lovely Sushi Killer of 16 Bit Sirens decided to start a project called CONsent.
