On to My Next Adventure at Blizzard

Five years ago, I received a phone call from Blizzard offering me the chance of a lifetime—a position on the World of Warcraft team.

Simply put, this is my favorite game of all time, and working on it these past five years has been a dream come true. I have learned so much from the women and men who make it and everyone who plays it. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on a game that so many people around the world are so passionate about.

A few weeks ago, I was offered a new opportunity at Blizzard that I’m really excited about. Tomorrow is my last day working on World of Warcraft.

As a longtime player, I couldn't be more excited about what the future has in store for World of Warcraft. In particular, the PvP team remains hard at work on some incredible plans. I fully expect that the best years of World of Warcraft PvP are ahead of us.

Thank you to everyone involved with World of Warcraft, from the development team to the players, for letting me be a part of this game's community. I consider it a great privilege.

Good luck with future projects! :o
Good luck and all the best to you Brian.
I've said a lot of ill things about your work and don't agree with or like all of it, but I wish you luck where ever you go.

Thank you for everything

Don't worry, I'm sure WoW PvP'ers will be blaming you for stuff you didn't do for YEARS, if not DECADES.

Good luck, man. ... you're gonna need it. /hansolo
Good luck in your new position!
Thanks Holinkey
Good luck where you go! One of my favorite Blizzcon memories was running into you and talking for just a few minutes. Thanks for the great work.
Good luck and you'll be missed.
Thank you and good luck, Brian!

Take Ashran with you plz
Cheers, dude.
I know a lot of the changes you helped drive were controversial to say the least, but I've had a blast while you were around.
I look forward to seeing what's next for you and for WoW.
