Ex-Blizzard bosses J. Allen Brack and Jen Oneal form new AAA studio

Former Blizzard devs team up with industry veterans to create new action RPG (1)

Former Blizzard President J. Allen Brack and his successor Jen Oneal (who also no longer works at Blizzard) have founded a new AAA studio called Magic Soup Games.

LOL! That thought immediately popped into our heads as we reviewed last night’s US news. After we reported yesterday about the umpteenth development studio that was founded in recent years by former Blizzard veterans (this time want Jay Wilson and Julian Love are developing a new action role-playing game with their studio Gas Giant Games), there was the next message of this kind last night.

Bye Bye Blizzard | What became of the legendary developers of yesteryear

Here the president still cooks himself

The new Game developer Magic Soup Games was not founded by some veterans who at some point worked on Warcraft, Diablo, Stacraft and Co. At the helm are J. Allen Brack and Jen Oneal, two former bosses of the company. Brack assumed the role of President in October 2018, after Mike Morhaime left office. The successor was not well received by all Blizzard fans because Brack wanted WoW Classic at BlizzCon 2013 with the arrogant phrase “You think you do, but you don’t”..
