New WoW Game Director

A post on from Tom "Kalgan" Chilton announcing he is stepping down as World of Warcraft game director. He says he is moving on to something else within the company, but does not specify if it's a new game, saying: "it's with a mix of excitement, sadness, and gratitude that Iím saying farewell to the WoW team and moving on to a new adventure within Blizzard." Here's what this means to the MMORPG:

My personal journey working on WoW as Game Director is at an end, but my journey with Blizzard isnít. Iíll still be here, but will be focusing on another project within the company. However, itís with great pleasure that I announce Ion Hazzikostas will be taking my place as Game Director for World of Warcraft.

I know that WoW will be in great hands with Ion at the helm. Heís been an integral part of the team for more than eight years and has contributed to so many aspects of the gameís developmentófrom class design to encounter design and nearly everything in between. He also has an amazing team at his sideóthe same epic crew that brought you all the content youíre enjoying in Legion.

As a member of the WoW team, I can assure you that the future for World of Warcraft continues to be brightóand as a player, Iím excited to discover whatís in store next alongside all of you. World of Warcraft is the product of the passion of both the team and all of its players, so Iíd also like to thank each of you for the wonderful journey that working on the WoW development team has been.
