World of Warcraft lead systems designer Greg Street has confirmed on both Twitter and Facebook that he is leaving Blizzard.
“I have been at Blizzard Entertainment for almost six years,” he wrote on Facebook. “It has been epic and I have made many friends around the world and I have learned so much. But, I have a great opportunity for something new and exciting, and sadly it is time to move on.”
Street then clarified on Twitter that the shape of World of Warcraft will not be affected by his departure because “WoW design philosophy comes from the team and not any one individual.”
