Mike was recognised for his commitment to a high standard of quality that has propelled Blizzard to where they are today on the global playing field.

Morhaime brings a commitment to quality to his consumers and an inclusive work environment to his company, both of which have contributed to the immense success of Blizzard.”

And Mike this:

“We have some of the most successful online games in the world. Diablo III is actually going to be our 14th No. 1-selling game,” Morhaime says. “World of Warcraft has been the No. 1 massively multiplayer online game for seven years in a row.”
