Recently today it has been announced that Mike Morhaime (cofounder and ex-CEO of Blizzard Entertainment) and his wife Amy Morhaime (ex-ledearship roles on Blizzard Global Esports teams) began a new video games trademark named Dreamhaven. The company has two studios: Moonshot Games and Secret Door.
The first is lead by Jason Chayes (former art lead and development director at Electronic Arts and worked on Hearthstone), Dustin Browder (worked in the field of game direction and design on Command & Conquer, StarCraft II and Heroes of the Storm) and Ben Thompson (years of experience in visual arts direction). The second is lead by Chris Sigaty (oversaw the development of Warcraft III, StarCraft II, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone), Alan Dabiri (helped develop Warcraft III, StarCraft II and Heroes of the Storm) and Eric Dodds (was a game director for Hearthstone and designer for World of Warcraft).
The company's values and goals are, quoting:
- Reimagine the studio model by empowering studios to establish independent identities, voices and cultures.
- Create vibrant worlds that reflect our values
- Take the chances that most big publishers won't and many smaller studios aren't always able to
- Provide a safe place where developers, creators, and players can connect in meaningful ways
- Create games that we would be proud to share with our children and the world
The teams are made of around 7-9 people and are looking for more.
