Chris Metzen announced via this forum post that he is retiring from Blizzard. According to Chris, he isn't leaving Blizzard to pursue other ventures or start a new company, he's doing it right and retiring so he can enjoy his life, wife and kids while he's still young enough to do so. :cool:

The reason I use the word “retire” is because I’m not going to some other company or starting up new projects or anything remotely like that. It’s been a long, amazing stretch of years. Now it’s time to slow it down. Rest. Lay around on the couch and get fat. Well, fatter.... Seriously though, I’ll be focusing on the one thing that matters most to me in all the world—my family. They’re the core of my life and the source of my deepest joy and inspiration.

Given his success I'm surprised he didn't retire or pursue other things sooner. He'll probably get bored in retirement and be back in a few years.

Or he'll drive his wife and kids crazy with him being around all the time and they'll make him find a hobby doing games again.... :)

He still intends to voice Thrall, so that's something, I guess. I'm glad he's leaving on his own terms and wish him the best in his new life of loafing around the house.

Damn, wish I could do that. I think I could handle being bored...hell, I've got enough projects around my house that I would always technically have something to do. The big question - would I??? I could also work on my Steam collection.
