The company founded by three senior Blizzard defectors is getting a new name and a new strategy. The company formerly known as Triforge, headed up by Pat Wyatt, Mike O'Brien, and Jeff Strain, had been renamed Arena.net. The company also has a new vision to match the web-centric name; Arena.net will publish games exclusively over the Internet, employing a streaming system that will allow players to upgrade from a demo to the full version without having to leave the game. In addition to online publishing, the company is planning an online gaming site at Arena.net. "We've seen gamers build incredible online communities around their fan sites, and we'd like to extend their capabilities by providing them tools that link directly into the play experience," said O'Brien.
