PC gamers have seen thousands of hours of their lives drained by the ruthlessly addictive output of Blizzard Entertainment since the 1990s.

Console players finally got a taste of the drug with last year’s PlayStation...

New games were extrapolated on for Xbox One during the Microsoft conference,...
