    One of the founders of Blizzard Entertainment, and president for over two decades, Mike Morhaime, is stepping down from his role at the company. He will be succeeded by J. Allen Brack, the executive producer of the World of Warcraft series. Morhaime says that though he is giving command of Blizzard to someone new, he will serve as an advisor to the new incoming team. Brack's past experience stems from working as the senior VP of World of Warcraft, working on the Wing Commander series, and having worked on projects at Sony during the early 2000s.

    Being president of a big game company is hard work. I'm sure he racked up a lot of doe from all his work. Especially after 27 years. But he hasn't left the company. He'll be an advisor to the new team. A more relaxing role if you ask me.

    I just hope this won't have any negative impact on Overwatch: the best game in the world ever designed!

    Hey you. Yes, you J. Allen Brack. I have a advise for you: Make Warcraft 4 already.

    Sarcasm? No! Overwatch for me is absolutely the best online competitive multiplayer game ever created, meanwhile Skyrim is the best single player game ever!
    P.s. preferisco sushi che pizza, perché ha troppa caloria...

    Dunno, used to play OW, stopped 'cus it got just became frustrating to play it.
    Think there's better multiplayer games out there, but I'm the kinda guy that hates playing with random people online, so there's that.
    Divertente che dici quello, stasera per cena ho pizza

    Overwatch teaches you how to NOT tilt easily, and how to try to improve urself about teamwork among random individuals or even leadership :) now thanks to Overwatch I'm a iceman, dude!
    P.s. la pizza si prende al mezzogiorno, tutti quei carboidrati e i grassi che non riusci a smaltire ti rimaranno sui fianchi e sulla panza :) a quanti mesi è incinto di pizza il tuo padre? xD
