Default Goodnight, Sweet Prince - Chris Metzen is retiring

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

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?

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.

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.
