Report: Senior Designer On Titan Project Laid Off
Now is not a good time to be working on an MMO, even if you’re at Blizzard, apparently. At least that’s true if Massively‘s report is accurate, that a senior designer on Titan at Blizzard, John Staats, is now out of a job.
Staats, you might remember, has been known for his work on World of Warcraft, where he designed many a dungeon and location. He was considered key personnel on that title, so if he’s gone, then things are pretty legit serious over there.
There’s always the possibility that the report is incorrectly worded, and that Staats was actually just straight up fired. That would be a little different, I think. Still, it would be bad. We never like to hear about people losing their jobs. Despite being an asshole, I am quite empathetic.
