Kinda crazy, didn't really see it coming. Very interested to see where everything goes from here.

Has any one man done so much to create so much WarCraft lore?

Has any one man done so much to fuck it all up?

We may never know.

Just a heads up folks, he says he'll still be voicing Thrall.


So he may carry on doing voice acting for Blizzard, but not be an official employee.

I remember there was a bunch more of those, do you have them?

And about Metzen... I gotta agree he was a lucky guy working on what he did, and as boring as some of his ideas were, it gave us the franchise we play now, so thanks for that :3

We will probably see him on Blizzcons, just not up on the stage, high on cloud nine; just all over the place now, still high on cloud 9

Does this mean Kosak is now firmly in control of story direction?

Does this possibly coincide with the start up of Bonfire Studios by Metzens old pals just a little too conveniently?

Pretty sure he has been in all-but-name for some time already.

Honestly, I think that's a coincidence. Metzen would have no reason to lie, if he wanted to try somewhere fresh; he'd of said so. Other guys that have left to go to other companies are usually up-front about it, I see no reason Metzen wouldn't of been.

Regarding Bonfire: As Cron said, I'm more suprised by Nick Carpenter frankly.

Say what you will about Metzen, it's impossible to deny he's one of the most genuine, outgoing and passionate people there. BIG GREEN COCK jokes aside, I can never say I've disliked him.

I don't think Thrall is going to make it to the end of Legion tbh.

Why do we have two threads about this?

Warcraft Adventures is "released". Metzen leaves a few days after.

Interesting...

Or perhaps not. What the F*ck do I know? Probably not connected.

Really sad to see a personal hero of mine head out. I wish him all the best.

Good night, sweet prince.

Goodbye Thrall.

Do they even have anyone as charismatic as Metzen for Blizzcons?


This was a prophecy?

I am going to miss him... I feel really bummed. I am seriously expecting him to join or collab with Bonfire Studios at some point. Rob Pardo, Nick Carpenter and Metzen could come together and make America great again!

Probably feeling the burn of the industry. Especially working somewhere like Blizzard. Great games but its your whole life. I'm pretty sure he won't actually retire at 42 years old though. Watch for something else, I reckon.
