Blizzard Entertainment is preparing to celebrate twenty years in the video game development business with a batch of media and articles that will be released in a staggered fashion, though at the moment there's only this video of co-founders Mike Morhaime and Frank Pearce thanking the community for two decades of support. From the handy transcript:
Hello, everyone. Frank and I wanted to send a message out to all of our players around the world because today is a very special day for Blizzard Entertainment. The company turns twenty years old, which is absolutely incredible. When we first started the company, back in 1991, there were just three of us. We really just wanted to use this opportunity to thank you for all these years of support because without you, we wouldn't be able to continue doing what we do.
The community that has built up around Blizzard and our games... it's really exciting for us. We're very appreciative, and humbled by the support we get from around the globe. Our games wouldn't be possible without you guys. So, it's really awesome that we have a community that shares our intense passion for gaming and holds us to an even higher standard of quality than we hold ourselves.
The passion that you guys have for gaming is evident. We absolutely love the feedback, so keep it coming. It really helps us push ourselves to be even better, and we really do want to continue meeting and exceeding your expectations with even more cool stuff in the future.
