So, do you think you know all there is to know about World of Warcraft lore and storytelling?
WoWhead noticed that World of Warcraft is apparently on the hunt for a new Narrative Director, which raised a few eyebrows as the job description is pretty much the same as the job Lead Narrative Director Steve Danuser already has or potentially even a step above it (“Reporting to the Creative Director of WoW,” “Collaborate with the Creative Director, Game Director, Art Director, WoW design leadership, and Blizzard Story & Franchise Development,” “Mentor and lead a team of narrative designers,” etc.).
But according to his Linkedin, he hasn’t actually stepped down. Given some of the other corporate title-juggling at Blizzard lately, we’d say it’s more likely that he’s just been promoted with a fresh title.
It’s nevertheless sparked discussions about the game’s plot in the last few years, and not in a positive way, within the WoW community.
In other WoW news, Blizzard has released a dev missive that’s more like a roundup, at least for folks who’ve already read WoW and MMO websites over the last few weeks; the studio recaps its recent Dragonflight interviews, talks about Season 4 changes, and of course, heralds the recent arrival of the Sunwell Plateau in WoW Classic: Burning Crusade.
