Five years ago, I received a phone call from Blizzard offering me the chance of a lifetime—a position on the World of Warcraft team.
Simply put, this is my favorite game of all time, and working on it these past five years has been a dream come true. I have learned so much from the women and men who make it and everyone who plays it. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on a game that so many people around the world are so passionate about.
A few weeks ago, I was offered a new opportunity at Blizzard that I’m really excited about. Tomorrow is my last day working on World of Warcraft.
As a longtime player, I couldn’t be more excited about what the future has in store for World of Warcraft. In particular, the PvP team remains hard at work on some incredible plans. I fully expect that the best years of World of Warcraft PvP are ahead of us.
Thank you to everyone involved with World of Warcraft, from the development team to the players, for letting me be a part of this game’s community. I consider it a great privilege.
The patch lands 1 week before the release of the Tomb of Sargeras raid, which releases on June 20th. It also brings with it class tuning, a scenario involving Chromie dying a bunch of times, the Trial of Style, and more.
