Blizzard Entertainment has officially announced theabandonment of Geoff Goodmanthe lead hero designer who in recent years has worked on the creation of the now endless Overwatch roster.

Geoff Goodman “made the decision to leave Blizzard earlier this year”, a spokesman for the company said. Goodman’s last public appearance dates back to a group interview with senior game designer Josh Noh in June.

“We thank Geoff for his many years of service at Blizzard and wish him all the best. His ability to bring Overwatch’s diverse roster of heroes to life through the gameplay it has been incredible and the mark it has left on the Warcraft and Overwatch teams will be felt for years to come. “reads the Blizzard statement with which he greets his now former collaborator.

Goodman has been working on Overwatch ever since the title was internally known as Titan. The concept of the latter was eventually discarded to make way for the hero shooter we all know. In addition to former game director Jeff Kaplan, who left Blizzard in 2021, Goodman was one of the few Overwatch public faces often invited to discuss gameplay changes and new heroes in interviews and events. Goodman helped design major rework for Doomfist And Orisathe new heroes Sojourn And Junker Queenand probably was also instrumental in creating the new support hero Kiriko.
