    In a farewell message to the WoW community, Chilton states that he is moving to a “new adventure within Blizzard”. What could that new adventure be? The new Diablo project that is supposedly happening?

    We have little to go on at the moment but Chilton has been essential in making WoW the success it is, so whatever this new project is, it will benefit from his vast experience.

    The update from Chilton reads:

    For me, Legion has been more than just another expansion, though—it’s the culmination of more than a decade of work with one of the best development teams I’ve ever had the pleasure to be a part of. And it’s with a mix of excitement, sadness, and gratitude that I’m saying farewell to the WoW team and moving on to a new adventure within Blizzard.

    My personal journey working on WoW as Game Director is at an end, but my journey with Blizzard isn’t. I’ll still be here, but will be focusing on another project within the company. However, it’s 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. He’s been an integral part of the team for more than eight years and has contributed to so many aspects of the game’s development—from class design to encounter design and nearly everything in between. He also has an amazing team at his side—the same epic crew that brought you all the content you’re enjoying in Legion.

    BlizzCon can’t come soon enough.

    Thanks PC Invasion.
