An Epic Anniversary

There isn’t much I can say about this – the title is self-explanatory. Our lovely Blizzard is no longer a teenager company, and is only one year away from legal age (in the US). I am not sure what the implications of that are, nor am I sure whether all of them can be considered legal, but the facts are here. And, as it’s starting to become common, Blizz did a mini-site for the anniversary – you check it out along with the big announcement below:

Blizzard said: In 1991, three guys fresh out of UCLA decided to start their own game company. Their goal: make cool games and have fun doing so. Twenty years later, the company has become a world-renowned game developer and publisher, with offices across the globe and millions of players enjoying its games in more than a dozen languages.

In 2011, Blizzard Entertainment marks its 20th anniversary. Over the course of the year, we’ll be celebrating two decades worth of games along with you, the community of players who made it all possible through your passion, enthusiasm, and support. Join us for a stroll down memory lane on this anniversary site: revisit the history of our games; participate in our global community contest; check out the photo gallery to witness how our epic hairstyles have evolved over the years; and much, much more.

We hope you enjoy this look back at the past 20 years of Blizzard Entertainment, and we look forward to bringing you even more epic entertainment experiences in the 20 years to come.

Blizzard fans should be sure to keep your eyes on the new special mini-site as fresh new content is made available!

On a side note, am I correct? Did they turn 20 already, or will that happen sometime later this year? 😛
