After stepping down as CEO from Blizzard Entertainment in October 2018 and leaving the company entirely in April 2019, former company president and co-founder Mike Morhaime is still working in the industry. Despite his apparent absence or silence, Morhaime has now established a new company.
Dreamhaven is Morhaime’s new base of operations. It’s a company that will “create and publish original games for players around the world” and aims to “empower creators, help bring their ideas to life, and create original gaming experiences that foster meaningful connections between players,” according to a blog post. In announcing this new publishing house, Dreamhaven also unveiled two new studios.
Moonshot Games is led by three ex-Blizzard developers who worked on titles such as Command & Conquer, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. The studio is also comprised of other employees who contributed to “some of gaming’s most popular franchises.” These franchises weren’t specified in the blog post.
