Omar Gonzalez, a chief architect of World of Warcraft Classic, has departed Blizzard for Dreamhaven

We're not friends, right? Good.

If you’re a fan of WoW Classic, you have Omar Gonzalez to thank for it. You may not have known about that, but it’s true; Gonzalez was basically the man who locked himself away to find a way to integrate classic data with the modern World of Warcraft client, proving that the project was possible in the first place. This means that it’s kind of significant that after 18 years with Blizzard he’s apparently moved on to Secret Door, one of the two studios developing under ex-Blizzard head Mike Morhaime’s company Dreamhaven.

What projects Gonzalez will be working on in his new position remains to be seen, but it seems obvious from the man’s resume that he’s a talented designer and engineer with plenty of experience. We wish him the best of luck in his new occupation and the best of luck to Blizzard in finding a successor.
