Blizzard isn’t out of the hot water yet.
As thousands of Activision Blizzard employees have come forward about their working experiences during the ongoing lawsuit, beloved composer Russell Brower, who has worked on WoW, Starcraft and Diablo franchises, has made his own thoughts very clear.
The news that Activision Blizzard are being sued by the state of California sent ripples throughout the company, it’s studios, fans and the industry at large.
Russell Brower, the man behind the iconic soundtracks that accompany your World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 journeys, among others, has also hit back at the gaming behemoth in a subtle but effective change to his Twitter bio.
From soaring symphonies to cascading choruses, Brower’s 12-year legacy with the company cannot be understated. Parting ways with the company in 2017, fans of his work expected him to make sporadic appearances in future releases, but that seems to have gone out the window.
Reacting to the claims made in the lawsuit, Brower has altered his Twitter biography to read “Composer, Music Director, Conductor – World of Warcraft, Diablo III, StarCraft II. Wish I could get those 12 years of my life back.” Before the news dropped, that second sentence wasn’t there.
