Blizzard co-founder Allen Adham rejoins the company

Blizzard team

Blizzard co-founder and vice president Allen Adham left the company in 2004, but now he’s back where he belongs. 

Psyched for BlizzCon? We’ll be there covering the event, so be sure to follow our BlizzCon 2016 tag for the very latest.

Over a decade ago Adham stepped down due to the cumulative effects of “working the long hours and doing the game crunch for many years”, a Blizzard spokesperson said at the time. He initially remained on as a consultant, but he’s now returning full-time.

Adham co-founded Blizzard in 1991 with partners Michael Morhaime and Frank Pearce. That small team built the company into the behemoth it is today, and now they’re back together like some sort of ’90s boyband reunion.

What his return means isn’t yet clear, but with Adham being one of the major players in making the company a success, it can only lead to even greater things for Blizzard.
