Rumor: Blizzard Lays Off Longtime Senior MMO Level Designer

Posted on Tuesday, November 8 @ 14:37:03 Eastern by Josh_Laddin
Despite being only slighlty less of a juggernaught in the MMO space than it has in years past, Blizzard is still making obscene amounts of money. But a rumor out today shows that even in the good times, the guys on top are still subject to the axe.


Joystiq reports that one of their tipsters dropped the bomb that John Staats has been laid off. Staats had been on the WoW dev team since the game's inception and had his hand in almost all the content the game had to offer before leaving that post to be Senior Level Designer for Blizzard's new super-secretive MMO, Titan. Is not all perfect with the development of Titan? You don't just let go one of your most important guys (who has been refered to as "hero of the WoW dev team") without something serious going on.
