Heroes of the Storm Game Director Alan Dabiri has left his position on the team to "begin a new adventure elsewhere within the company". He accepted the new position several months ago and began the transition to move to the new team. As yet, there is no mention of who will be taking over as Game Director. Dabiri has been with Blizzard for 20 years and has served in a number of capacities across the breadth of the company's portfolio.
Heroes has one of the most passionate and dedicated development teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and they have a ton of exciting new content in development. I can’t wait for you all to see what they have in store for the rest of this year and beyond. You can bet that I’ll be right there enjoying it with you as it’s released, too. I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Heroes is in a great place and I promise that it’s in the hands of the best possible people to continue driving it forward. Kaéo and the Heroes team are people who play almost every night who also happen to get to work on making the game what it is today. With our continued input and support, they’ll keep doing what they do best by making Heroes of the Storm the most awesome game it can possibly be.
