Blizzard announced the change of leadership of the Overwatch team – leading game designer Jeff Kaplan left the company, who was actually the face of a network shooter. “Never accept the world as it seems. Always try to see him as he can be.
I hope you will do the same,” Kaplan said in a farewell letter. Aaron Keller, before then Kaplans former assistant, was put in his place.
Kaplan worked at Blizzard for about 19 years — he started out as a designer for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and later became the game director of World of Warcraft. In the MMORPG team, he also toiled on additions The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King.
After that, the company wanted to make a new MMO – so the idea of Titan appeared, which could not be implemented. After a few years of difficult production, the project was cancelled, but on its basis they tried to “quickly” make a new game.
She became Overwatch. Kaplan became another Blizzard veteran who left the studio amid Activisions increased influence on the company.
It is not yet known if he will remain in the industry.
