A few days ago, Chris Metzen, Blizzard’s creative director announced its retirement. The man who created the universe for StarCraft, Warcraft, Diablo and Overwatch, decided to spend more time with his family and left Blizzard. His contribution to the development of Blizzard’s games will be honored with a massive statue of himself and baby Winston from Overwatch.
Apparently the departure of Chris Metzen has triggered a streak of surprisingly new departures. The World of Warcraft Lead Quest Designer, Craig Amai leaves the WoW team after more than ten years. He’s just leaving WoW, “not necessarily Blizzard.” Coincidence or not, the Senior Director of Story & Creative Development James Waugh said “Goodbye Blizzard” on the same day with Craig Amai.
Two weeks ago WoW’s Lead Character Artist Tyson Murphy has moved on from Blizzard and his now heading to Riot Games. I wonder if all these departures will affect the massive Blizzard ship!?
