The full, brief blog post is below:
Citizens of Azeroth,
It is with great joy that I announce Chris Metzen has joined the Warcraft Leadership Team as Creative Advisor. Chris’s focus initially will be on World of Warcraft, then his work will expand to other projects across this growing franchise.
Chris was one of the original team members working on the Warcraft universe back when it began in 1994, and we are so happy to be reuniting him with the world he helped create.
General Manager, Warcraft
Chris Metzen started with Blizzard in 1994, and has been seen as one of the foundations of the franchise. He was instrumental in the releases of Warcraft II and Warcraft III, and he contributed heavily to World of Warcraft‘s story, artwork, and voice work, most notably voicing Thrall. He retired from Blizzard in 2016.
More information on his role will be given as it becomes available.
