A tweet from John Hight has news from General Manager of the Warcraft franchise that Chris Metzen has reconnected with Blizzard. The former Blizzard Creative Director announced his departure from the company in 2016 as a "retirement." Now he will serve as a Creative Advisor on the Warcraft Leadership Council:
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.
