Blizzard just release the latest expansion to World of Warcraft, titled Legion, and many fans are calling it the best WoW expansion in years. For many fans this is the continuation of an epic journey that has last well over a decade. For WoW’s game director Tom Chilton, however, this is actually the beginning of an entirely new adventure.
On a recent blog post, Chilton talked about his long career working on WoW and how, now that Legion is done, he will be moving onto an undisclosed new project. Assistant game director Ion Hazzikostas will be taking his place as game director for World of Warcraft.
“For me, Legion has been more than just another expansion, though—it’s the culmination of more than a decade of work with one of the best development teams I’ve ever had the pleasure to be a part of. And it’s with a mix of excitement, sadness, and gratitude that I’m saying farewell to the WoW team and moving on to a new adventure within Blizzard.”

Wow, indeed! Chilton has been at the helm of World of Warcraft for a long time, so we can’t blame him for wanting to move on. We’re itching to know what he’s working on, but WoW fans should be excited that they have another mysterious Blizzard project to look forward to.
