Rob Pardo, ex-World of Warcraft lead designer, has created his own development house Bonfire Studios and has successfully received $25 million in investment from Riot Games, the makers of League of Legends, and Andreessen Horowitz, an American venture capital firm. 

Alongside Rob Pardo Bonfire Studios will have a lot of Blizzard's former talent including, Matthew Versluys, the ex-director of Battle.net, Nick Carpenter, the former Vice pPresident of Art and Cinematic Development at Blizzard and Josh Mosqueira, the former creative director of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. 

At this time Bonfire Studios has not revealed any new projects, but we expect great things from these former Blizzard elites. 


     Bonfire Studios is an independent game studio located in sunny Irvine, California. Our purpose is to build friendships by creating legendary game experiences that bring players closer together, united in a sense of adventure, exploration and fellowship.

At Bonfire being the best means being driven to excel, not as individuals but as a team. We believe that skill and experience are only part of the puzzle – an adventurous spirit, a commitment to excellence and a passion for iteration are essential.
