As announced yesterday, Mike Morhaime, the co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, will be stepping down as the CEO and President of the company, with J. Allen Brack named his successor.
Mike Morhaime co-founded Silicon & Synapse alongside Allen Adham on the 8th of February 1991 with a clear-cut mission, summed up by four words: ‘We make great games’.
When we started Blizzard we just wanted to make great games. What we realized is that the games we create are really just a framework for communities and human interaction. When we look back, what we often find that’s most lasting and meaningful from our experiences in games are the relationships we create and foster. You have given me the inspiration and drive to pour my heart and life into what I do. I literally couldn’t have done any of it without you. We have created these worlds, but you have given them life, through your passion, fan art, cosplay, videos, and in so many other ways.
Taking up the mantle of President and CEO of Blizzard is none other than J. Allen Brack, mainly known for his work on World of WarCraft. The promotion comes off the back of Mr. Brack’s 13 years of experience with the company.
