Wasn't he one of the main Diablo 4 devs....
Part of me is still to this day salty about Starcraft 2 balance XD but: Farewell Mr Kim! Hope you find a good job ^^
Dun dun dun.....another one bites the dust!....catJAM
Damn, they're bleeding over there aren't they
Best of luck to the man, although it sounds like a lot of Blizzard veterans have been quitting recently.
Waiting to see the news that he joined dreamhaven.
Glad to see the devs are not taking Koticks crap anymore. Has to really hurt seeing a good studio crumble and fail to maintain their products because a single person decide their salary is the priority,
Now we hope that Holinka will go away as PvP fixer designer, but forever this time, and not a goodbye but a final goodbye
Probably he's off to a better work environment, just reading this article, as a software/game dev myself, i can imagine what he went through and what he was put through/expected of him. That being said, the future of pc/console games doesn't look to good at blizzard, i hope they wake up sooner than later
the activison greed is going to cost them more and more great peopel
It's normal attrition. For every 100 employees, assuming a job is 7 years (a good length of time), you have 14 leaving the business a year. Blizzard has thousands of employees, so you have hundreds leaving a year with VERY conservative attrition numbers - 7 years average tenure - for a modern tech/entertainment company.I don't understand why other people don't understand math, but there you go. Hundreds will leave a year in a VERY HEALTHY company of that size, no matter how great it is.
Everyone from Old School times are leaving,and i wish them the best of luck! But i hope to the re-booted Blizzard (Dreamhaven) to make something new level as they did with WoW,because the only thing that will kill WoW is WoW,so if someone can do it,it's Dreamhaven :)
If he goes to Dreamhaven, it will give me hope to be more interested in the proyects they're making! But for now, farewell, pretty sure he made a excellent job.
People leave jobs all the time, people need to calm down.
starcraft is a dead game now? d4 is in unknown statenot sure if i should be disappointed
How bad things must be there on Blizz....
