Dave Kosak (former lead Mission Designer on the Hearthstone team) announced on Twitter that he has left Blizzard Entertainment after 12 years.

  • Dave is responsible for the character - Patches the Pirate, created during a "brainstorming session" between the Hearthstone team and the World of Warcraft story team, prior to Kosak's joining Team 5. [Source]
  • He was also responsible for the PvE content like the brand new Dungeon Run (in Kobolds and Catacombs).
  • Recently Dave appeared in the Madness at the Darkmoon Faire announcement video, which was sadly his last video for the Hearthstone team.
  • Dave is joining the DeviationGames studio and they are working on a secret project for now, which will make us go "Whoa" when announced!

If you follow me because of #Hearthstone, no need to worry! Last week we announced a great expansion, a new mode, and new progression/rewards. Believe me when I say that’s only the beginning. Great things are in the works!

And, of course, #Shadowlands is around the corner for #WorldofWarcraft. I will be adventuring right alongside you. I am honored to have contributed to the Warcraft universe, and excited for what’s to come.

What’s next for me? I’m pleased to announce that I’ve taken on an important role at @DeviationGames! We are building… something secret. But amazing. I can’t say any more, but I promise: It’ll make you go “Whoa.”

We wish you the best Dave, you'll be missed!
