Blizzard President announces World of Warcraft successor at BlizzCon 2018

At the BlizzCon 2018 Opening Ceremony, new Blizzard President J. Allen Brack announced his World of Warcraft developer successor, John Hight.

Hight joined the World of Warcraft development team during Mists of Pandaria before then moving to Diablo 3. He later returned to World of Warcraft and has now been promoted to the Executive Producer & Vice President of the game. J. Allen Brack, who previously occupied the role, was promoted to Blizzard President following co-founder and previous President Mike Morhaime's retirement.

"We miss you on the WoW team, J, but we are so proud to have you as our President," said Hight in his first words in his new role. He went on to announce that World of Warcraft Classic will be released in the summer of next year, 2019, and that anyone with a WoW subscription will have access to the game. 

He also unveiled World of Warcraft's new charity pet, which is an adorable, bug-eyed, mini yeti named Womper.
