World of Warcraft Lead System Designer Greg “Ghostcrawler” Street Leaving Blizzard

A day before Thanksgiving is an odd time to quit your job, but then again this is the video game world where rationality is ever-changing. Greg Street announced today via a Facebook post that he would be leaving Blizzard Entertainment after almost six years of employment. Street was the Lead System Designer on World of Warcraft and was best known by his handle “Ghostcrawler” on the game’s message boards.

In the Facebook post seen below, Street did not state where he would be heading but said his departure was a “great opportunity for something new and exciting.”
