    More at Link.



    This is huge.

    Damn, Jeff was pretty chill with WoW back in the day. Sucks to see him leave. I know he hasn't been on the WoW team for awhile, but I'm certain the OW team feels just as upset over his leave...I think?

    Everyone from old Blizzard is slowly leaving. I really hate to see that. D:

    He's really popular within the OW community too.

    Sucks to see him go, but it's understandable.

    Yikes, that is a very big loss...
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    20 years at a company is a great stretch.

    He did great on WoW, wish him all the best going forward! Excited to see where he ends up (probably with the old gang?).

    Do you hear the voices too?

    How so? He was currently part of OW with nothing to do with WoW. It's big for OW that's for sure.

    Thats another huge blow for the company. Jeff was one of the OG's who made WoW as good as it was, and did a rather amazing job with Overwatch. Him and Omar leaving basically finished off the last remaining bit of Blizzard that was left.

    And another one gone,
    and another one gone,
    Another one bites the dust!

    I think he left years ago and Blizzard is covering it up for whatever reason.

    I don’t blame them all for leaving.

    Hopefully they go to ethically better companies.

    I’d like to support the talented developers, without supporting people like Kotick and Activision board.

    Rumor has it he is burried under the Orcish Wolfrider in front of the HQ.

    Well damn...

    Its like growing up and seeing people around you move away and then seeing people move in and seeing the neighbourhood you knew not be the neighbourhood you remember anymore.

    Actiovision Blizzard doesnt deserver anythingless. I hope he will join Dreamhaven. In the end Blizzard was mainly people and i dont care about company name.
