They just had to ship four issues of the magazine within a year to live up to being a “quarterly” publication.
But here it is, a year and a month since I wrote about the first issue of the magazine (which is to say, some time after I received and read it) and that fourth issue is nowhere in sight. Issue two showed up in May, and issue three just after BlizzCon back in October. But now we’re in February.
And lest you think I misread the fine print, here is what you see when you go the magazine site to subscribe:
One year, four issues.
The site itself still shows the cover for issue three, so I’m pretty sure I didn’t miss issue four somehow. They were all keen to get me to resubscribe a while back lest I miss an issue. It looks like that was a bit of an exaggeration.
Who knew that when Future US took on the job of creating a WoW magazine that they would also adopt the Blizzard credo of slipping dates and shipping only when they were ready?
