This history of Blizzard

Blizzard

It’s Blizzards anniversary this year and they are celebrating turning 20, or being around for 20 years or something along those lines. They’re letting us know it’s taken 20 years to go from nothing to the gargantuan game developer they are today

And to mark the occasion they’ve put up an official timeline of their history over at their anniversary site, it would have been nicer as an infographic so I could just embed it but unfortunately for this one you are going to have to put in a little extra effort and click this link

I found the most interesting parts to be that they used to be called Chaos studios (and before that Silicon & Synapse). I remember seeing that Chaos Studio logo back in the day.

The other interesting part is watching how their offices grew from a one room hovel to an entire campus comprising of three entire buildings.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
