Blizzard buy cheap wow gold Entertainment is the the division of Activision Blizzard that brought us games like StarCraft, Diablo, and World of Warcraft, and it turns 25 today. Its chief executive is Mike Morhaime, who was one of the three original founders who started the company during the golden age of PC games.The company started in 1991 as Silicon Synapse, with Allen Adham, Morhaime, and Frank Pearce as its founders. They started out as work for hire, making games for Interplay Productions. But now they grown into a 4,000 employee powerhouse, with $1.6 billion in the 12 months that ended September 30, the leading subscriber online game in World of Warcraft, a 30 million seller in Diablo III, and two growing esports with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (a card battler) and Heroes of the Storm (an online multiplayer strategy game). Throughout the ups and downs, the changes in ownership, a transition in power in which Adham turned the reins over to Morhaime, the company has outlived the competition.GamesBeatinterviewed Morhaime last week to catch up on 25 years of history and Blizzard outlook for the future.We talked about the creation of Blizzard, how it got its final name, the transition to CEO back in 2004, how Blizzard handles game cancellations, and, perhaps most important, how Blizzard developed and held to its focus on making quality games for gamers. And we also talked about Blizzard future, the emergence of esports, and the importance of diversity.Here an edited transcript of our interview.View galleryAbove: Mike Morhaime, cofounder of Blizzard (then Chaos Studios) in 1993. Times back in 1994 with Allen Adham, right after we announced the Davidson acquisition. That might have been our first interview with [Dean Takahashi].GamesBeat: I think so. I'm looking at that story now, too. It was such a small deal at the time. $6.75 million.Morhaime: It seemed big at the time. But what's kind of cool is that you both look exactly the same.GamesBeat: If you could quickly summarize what you remember now about how you guys got started, how you met each other? I know it was in college. It was you, Allen, and Frank, right? What stands out for you now, about getting together with them?Morhaime: We had two classes together. I was studying electrical engineering and he was computer science and engineering. My last year at UCLA there was this quarter we had two classes together and we became really good friends.I didn't meet Frank until the first day, when we opened the company. Frank and Allen were friends from school. They might have had some classes together. Used to go to the arcade together. Allen viewed Frank as a passionate gamer. He was also a computer science and engineering major.Allen was the instigator. He recruited me to leave my job at Western Digital and Frank to leave his job at Rockwell. Allen also had a couple of other friends that were still in school. We subcontracted them to do some work. He lined up some work with Interplay and we opened the doors.Interplay hired us to do some ports of their games to the Mac or the Amiga. We did the Amiga version of Lord of the Rings. That was a game Interplay put out on the PC. That was probably the first project I remember working on. Frank did most of the work on that. Allen and I just pitched in occasionally.GamesBeat: I remember playing and writing about that game, the PC version.Morhaime: We all did some of the work on it. I wrote some utilities to convert the artwork so that it would display on the Amiga. It's funny. There was one piece of art that was somehow missing from what Interplay gave us, the Ring itself. Frank actually had to draw the Ring.Morhaime: Probably? Back then, you had PC as the main gaming platform, and then these other platforms that big companies like Interplay would hire little developers to do conversions for. Nowadays, it's probably the mobile platforms that are creating a lot of opportunities for small developers. With a very small team you can create compelling content and reach a large audience.GamesBeat: The thing that sticks in my head from that time was Allen saying, "We like making games that make your palms sweaty."Morhaime: [Laughs] Our first console game was RPM Racing. We started and released that project in that same year we founded the company, 1991. It managed to get on shelves by the holidays. That was also published by Interplay. And then the sequel was Rock 'n' Roll Racing, which is a much better game that we did a few years later.
