Ben Thompson Has Left The Hearthstone Team


It appears that Ben Thompson has left the Hearthstone team, we can tell by his latest additions to his ArtStation portfolio where he's mentioning his departure from the Hearthstone team.

Quote from Ben Thompson

  

"This logo was bitter-sweet as it would also serve to close out my tenure with the Hearthstone team and the game that had come to mean so much to me over the last decade."


  • Ben was working on the Hearthstone team as a lead artist and he was responsible for developing and maintaining the style of the game throughout the production.
  • Throughout the years, Ben created a lot of familiar cards, expansion logos, game-boards, card backs, and many more.
  • Some of them being -> Leeching PoisonEydis DarkbaneLight's SorrowThe Coin; Gallywix's CoinBand of BeesShut up, PriestThe Hunted
  • Ben also created our favorite SMOrc hero -> Rexxar

Quote from Ben Thompson

I actually left the company two weeks after BlizzCon last year and just didn’t make a big exit of it. I miss the team and of course the game as I saw it as my child after 11 years, but it was time to hand the reins to others and try something new again.


Thank you so much for your passionate work on our favorite card game Ben, you will be missed!
