Daybreak’s Holly Longdale raised a lot of eyebrows a month ago when she announced she was departing the Darkpaw Games sub-unit and leaving behind the EverQuest and EverQuest II franchise, which she’d helmed for many years. It was particularly surprising given that she’d spent the better part of the last year hinting at a future game in the franchise. Darkpaw was also just a few weeks public at that point too.
But they were all wrong, as today we know where she’s gone: Blizzard. Her Linkedin page now says she’s working at a Principal Game Producer at Blizzard. “Recently joined Blizzard to focus on World of Warcraft Classic,” the page says.
