Former Blizzard employees have begun working on games that the company no longer develops. This comes after a report from Bloomberg said ex-Blizzard developers, who no longer work for the organization, are using their new creative freedoms “to make games their former company won’t make anymore.”
Most of these independent developers have spread themselves out throughout Irvine, California, the location of Blizzard’s campus. As a result, small video game development hubs have begun to pop up across the region. Many individuals in the gaming community refer to this event as “Blizzard 2.0”.
Ben Brode is the former director of the hit game Hearthstone. In an interview with Bloomberg, Brode said, “we’re all super friendly with each other. We’re all trying to stay afloat, trying to do our best, help each other get there.”
No official titles have been announced by any of these independent development studios. However, it is being reported that they have already begun working on numerous games.
