“Blizzard produced must be a boutique”, which was once the biggest pride of Blizzard fans.
As a WOW and Diablo player, I personally recognize this, even if WOW is no one playing now, but its well-made is still killing 99%% online games, although the plot of 8.0 is very dissatisfied.
However, Blizzard has not been ill in recent years. Blizzard fans can see that there are problems with game development and operation, but the roots are in Blizzard.
Frank Pearce, co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment this weekend, announced that he will end Blizzard’s 28-year career.During his career, he published a letter in the official community thanking him for his work at Blizzard and looking forward to passing on the torch to the company's next generation of leaders.
Frank Pearce is one of Blizzard's founders, and Mike Morhaime and Allen Adham are known as Blizzard Big Three.They laid the foundation for Blizzard's gold signboard, but in his previous April, Mike Morhaime had left (although he confirmed his departure last year, and spent half a year as a consultant), Allen Adham left in 2004, but Return to Blizzard in 2016.
In just three months, the Big Three went two, if you counted some of the top executives from the top of the past few years from Blizzard — — game development, game operations, gaming community, finance, personnel In other respects, Blizzard’s turbulent development and management staff in the past two years is too much, and it is definitely not a normal company’s performance.
Who is blaming Blizzard today? Many Blizzard fans accused the merger with Activision many years ago is the beginning of Blizzard's defeat. It is not Blizzard's style to make quick money and earn hot money. However, with the change of shareholders, Blizzard's past game development and operation methods are obviously not subject to new shareholders. To be seen.
After reading the report of Frank Pearce's resignation, the players' responses are consistent, both domestically and abroad.The times have changed. People and companies that have carefully crafted games in the past are being eliminated. Even Blizzard, which has a gold-plated sign, has to change. To be profitable, all must go to the money. If you can’t make money, give up and leave. people.
