Blizzard celebrates 20th anniversary with nostalgic timeline

Happy birthday, Blizzard.


Blizzard celebrates 20th anniversary this year.

Blizzard is turning 20 this year and is celebrating the milestone with an extensive timeline of its history since 1991.

The timeline includes such historical events as Blizzard's numerous name changes from Silicon & Synapse to Chaos Studios, and more obscure releases including The Death & Return of Superman.

Blizzard was founded by three UCLA graduates, Michael Morhaime, Allen Adham, and Frank Pearce. The company initially focused on the development of ports for other studios before eventually creating their own titles.
