Mike Morhaime, a co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment and the studio’s longtime president, has stepped down from his position. Morhaime will help the company as a strategic adviser, while World of Warcraft executive producer J. Allen Brack will lead the team as president of Blizzard Entertainment, the company revealed.

Brack has been working with Blizzard for 12 years, leading the World of Warcraft team. Chief development officer Ray Gresko and Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham have also joined the studio’s executive leadership team to help the new leader.

“After many years of working with some of the industry’s most talented people to create games and worlds for you to play in, I’ve decided it’s time for someone else to lead Blizzard Entertainment. I will now serve as an advisor to the company I so love and admire. My duties as president of Blizzard will be assumed by my friend, colleague, trusted advisor, and longtime steward of World of Warcraft, J. Allen Brack,” said Morhaime. 

Morhaime co-founded Blizzard as Silicon & Synapse in 1991, managing the company since 1998. He became CEO in 2007. Morhaime has also helped the company as a developer, working on games like The Lost Vikings, all three Warcraft games, the first two Diablo games, the original StarCraft and World of Warcraft as a programmer, producer or executive producer.
