Diablo Immortal and World of Warcraft lead artist Glenn Rane leaves Blizzard

Same old story, same old song and dance.

Blizzard suffered another high-profile defection this past week, as art lead Glenn Rane departed the studio. Rane joined several of his former Blizzard colleagues (along with some ex-Epic Game Studio ones) at Lightforge Games to be a co-founder and art director.

Lightforge has yet to announce any of its projects, as it’s currently prototyping roleplaying games.

Glenn Rane was a long-term veteran of Blizzard having worked on World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and (most recently) Diablo Immortal. You’ll know his work quite well if you ever picked up a box copy of The Burning Crusade or saw the hero portraits for Hearthstone.

Blizzard’s seen a number of notable departures over the past year, including Overwatch’s Jeff Kaplan, World of Warcraft’s Dave Kosak, WoW Classic’s Omar Gonzalez, and Diablo IV’s David Kim.
