BLIZZARD

Blizzard Entertainment is one of the world’s leading game companies, creators of games such as Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft among many others.

Where it began

Blizzard Entertainment was founded by Michael Morhaime, Allen Adham, and Frank Pearce as Silicon & Synapse in February 1991, after all three had earned their bachelor’s degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles, the year prior. The name “Silicon & Synapse” was a high concept from the three founders, with “silicon” representing the building block of a computer, while “synapse” the building block of the brain.

Popular Games

Currently, Blizzard has four main franchises. Each franchise is supported by other media based around its intellectual property such as novels, collectible card games, comics and video shorts.
