Blizzard Entertainment said it plans to acquire Spellbreak maker Proletariat to beef up the staff on its massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft.

Under the deal, Boston-based Proletariat will become part of Blizzard, and its team of 100 developers will begin working on World of Warcraft, including the Dragonflight expansion coming later this year.

As long as the current head dev n design remains the same, doesn't matter how many people they throw at it...it will still stink

Used to luv the game but nowadays the game is really trash

Change of senior leadership, founder and president Mike Mohamine left Blizzard after being KO by Activision’s CEO Bobby.

Next prodigy that takes over is a slop long haired dude that’s wasted years of time and resources. Lots of experienced long time famous well known talents left. Huge job cuts 600 employees axed.

Microsoft going to take over and Blizzard now under co-leadership and has a manager to manage it.
