At the biggest Russian games event, IgroMir, which took place on November 5-8, Blizzard Entertainment presented two Blizzard games: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and StarCraft II. Chris Sigaty (lead producer on StarCraft II) and J. Allen Brack (production director on World of Warcraft) visited IgroMir for the first time, taking a moment out of their busy schedules to talk to the Russian audience about these eagerly awaited games.
