We want to let you know that Jeff Kaplan has decided to leave the company after a long and storied career here, and that Aaron Keller, a Blizzard veteran and founding member of the Overwatch team, will be stepping in as game director.
Aaron has been a critical part of the Overwatch team and a key driver in creating the vision for the game.
Jeff’s been a great leader, mentor, and friend, and he knows how much we’re going to miss him.
We’ll be sharing more frequent updates about Overwatch 2 progress and new features in the live game with you all very soon.
i want to express my deep appreciation to everyone at blizzard who supported our games, our game teams and our players.
You’ll hear more from Aaron and the rest of the Overwatch team soon.
In the meantime, please join us in thanking Jeff, and in welcoming Aaron into his new role. »
