“This was not an easy choice to make,” Browder stated. “I still play Heroes five nights a week, and sitting in the bullpen surrounded by this team has been the most intensely creative experience of my career.”
Browder has full confidence in the game’s future, however, stating “Heroes of the Storm is in the right hands” with 20-year Blizzard veteran Alan Dabiri. He has gradually been granted more responsibilities as a game director over the past few weeks while also serving as Heroes of the Storm’s technical director.
“Alan has had a hand in nearly every aspect of Heroes since the beginning, both in his role as our technical director and as part of the team’s collaborative development process,” Browder continued. “He is also a passionate member of the community, and he’s always in touch with what’s happening on Reddit, in our forums, and wherever you’re talking about Heroes. He’s been relentlessly working to make Heroes better for years, and I’m excited that he’ll be continuing to push the game forward as game director.”
While he may depart from Heroes of the Storm, he isn’t leaving Blizzard in the slightest. In fact, him leaving the game was done solely so that he could move on to a brand new, still undisclosed project for the studio.
Heroes of the Storm is free to download through Battle.net.
