Ghostcrawler confirmed the news on the official forums.

We just came off of a great BlizzCon. We had so many different games to talk about, and we were thrilled at the reception of Warlords of Draenor. It was great to meet or reconnect with so many of you. I love BlizzCon dearly, which makes it so hard to tell you that this will be my last one, or at least my last one up on stage. An opportunity has come my way, and I have made the very tough decision to move on from Blizzard.

I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of this grand quest. I have said a hundred times that having passionate gamers, including the angry ones, is a far better place to be than having a community that doesn’t care. You all care. Like us, you want the game to be the best that it can be. So I ask you to keep on providing your feedback. I promise (and I rarely promise!) that the developers care very much about what you have to say.

I’ll be out there, and I can’t imagine it will be that hard to find me.

Hugs,
Ghostcrawler

P.S. No, you can’t have a pony. Or a moose. Or a mantis shrimp. Or a tardigrade. Or a crab. Keep trying though.

P.P.S. I play a Holy Priest.

    i thought to my self - if this was some guy a bit less known in blizzard he would get fired.
    That's an invaluable quality. I'm shocked by the news. Hopefully he was mentoring someone to fill his shoes or something.

    Some folks are celebrating over this. Not me though. I liked the guy =(

    Pretty sure this is a confirmation that WoD will suck.

    As he said, "But, I have a great opportunity for something new and exciting, and it is time to move on."
    This is software industry-speak for "I got an offer somewhere else that was a big promotion."

    And I'm sure we'll find out what it is very soon.

    No, that is software industry-speak for "I get a nice severance package if I pretend everything is fine" He was fired.

    Wow... does this mean we might have a playable expansion for a change?

    You can relax fanboys, sucking up to him won't help now that he's gone.

    It's not like he died, chill out. As someone who was there when Kalgan passed the torch to a person who aided in the downfall of the game I loved I am legitimately very excited to see what the future has in store. Disagree? That's nice. Deal with it.
