Blizzard Entertainment

Chris Metzen, one of the original creators of World of Warcraft, has re-joined the Warcraft Leadership Team.

Metzen will join as Creative Advisor, Blizzard has said, with his focus intially being on World of Warcraft. His team will then "expand to other projects across this growing franchise"

Warcraft General Manager John Hight said, "Chris was one of the original team members working on the Warcraft universe back when it began in 1994, and we are so happy to be reuniting him with the world he helped create."

Little information has been revealed on either Metzen's or Blizzard's plans for World of Warcraft, of the franchise in the future.

World of Warcraft recently released its latest expansion, Dragonflight, which saw a number of new additions enter the long-running MMORPG. This expansion added new Race/Class combination — dracthyr Evoker, alongside the brand new Dragonriding skill, used only with the new, customizable Drakes.
