After 19 years as Vice President of Blizzard and Head of Overwatch, Jeff Kaplan is saying goodbye.
The news established itself as an ultimate Mei for all devotees of Californian society and, above all, to Overwatch. We were frozen to know that Jeff Kaplan, director and designer of the two installments of the hero shooter, Leaves Blizzard after almost 20 years at the helm of the franchise.
The announcement was made by Blizzard itself via its Official web. In it, Kaplan wanted to dedicate a few words of farewell to the entire gaming community. A letter with a very personal touch.
But the question everyone has asked is “What will happen to the development of Overwatch 2?“. Too, Aaron Keller, also a company veteran, will take over as the new director of the sequel. It should be mentioned that Keller previously worked with Kaplan on World of warcraft, therefore the development of Overwatch 2 stay in good hands. Aaron also wrote to fans to talk a bit about the future of the hero shooter.
With the departure of Jeff Kaplan, Blizzard Entertainment is losing more and more recognizable faces. Let us remember that in 2018, J. Allen Brack replaced Mike Morhaime as president of the company. One year later, I embroider he also ceased to be the visible face of Heart stone to create your own study: Second dinner.
As for Overwatch 2We still don’t know a specific departure date, and Kaplan’s departure will surely delay it even further. To brighten up the wait a bit, we can continue to enjoy the brawls of the first game and events such as Overwatch 2021 Archives, which started on April 6, to unlock new skins, player icons or graffiti.
