Overwatch Lead Writer Michael Chu Leaves Blizzard

Michael Chu, the lead writer for Overwatch, is leaving Blizzard. In a post on his blog, he reveals that when he first arrived at Blizzard Entertainment 20 years ago, his only dream was to help make the games he had spent many hours playing. He is grateful for having worked at Blizzard and getting to know and interact with the passionate global community that played their games.

"When I first walked through the doors of Blizzard Entertainment twenty years ago, my only dream was to help make the games I had spent countless hours of my life playing," he says.

"From the battles between the races of Azeroth in Warcraft to the corruption of humanity as pawns of the Eternal Conflict in Diablo, I was lucky enough to tell stories in these amazing universes and help bring them to life."

However, he is now ready to chase some new dreams.

Now, as I head out through the Blizzard doors for a last time, I have new dreams: to continue to tell these stories and build worlds that unite people through games. To help create an inclusive world where more people will want to share stories that reflect their own experiences. I hope it’s something we can build together,” Chu shares.
