Your right of course. However.1) Blizzard is in the People's Republic of California. You *can* be sued for anything. They may be silly suits with no chance of winning, but litigation against multinationals is not unheard of there. "You can't win a suit over DS" is true. "You can't sue" is not.2) Isn't Blizzard available in over 100 countries? It is not clear that if a relative of a high ranking figure in Elbonia were to sue a large American company in Elbonia that Blizzard would fight and win.3) It is the nature of software development that products and dates "evolve." However, "MMO developers hate talking about future features" is not quite true. If they didn't want to talk about new features, they wouldn't have to. ( How many Apple employees or partners do you see discussing future product plans before Steve is ready? None twice I can assure you.) Blizzard developers talk about them to generate more interest and sales. Perhaps because the WoW Development cycles are too long. And they talk about new features to hurt competitors. The WoW PR machine may have some "coming soon" campaign ready to coincide with Rift and TOR releases. Developers are voluntarily talking about new features in order to benefit their employer.
