In Riot Games ever continuing bid to suck up the lead designers of some of the world’s most popular MMOs, the studio has snatched up Greg Street. Street’s name may be relatively unknown, but his online persona “Ghostcrawler” is much more recognizable as Blizzard’s former Lead Game Designer for World of Warcraft. Street left Blizzard back in November where he had a hand in shaping WoW’s design for almost six years.

Street’s employment with Riot seems to have been confirmed by his own LinkedIn profile which lists Street as Lead Game Designer at Riot Games. This was later confirmed by Morello, Riot Game’s current Lead Designer on the official League of Legends forums where he stated Street would not be replacing him, but actually providing “some MUCH-needed help on the leadership side”.

Street has yet to confirm anything directly through his Twitter or other outlet.

Last September, Eve Online’s Lead Designer Kristoffer Touborg also left CCP to join Riot Games.

    Good luck to him, but I will not play any games he is involved with. Ghostcrawler is one of the main reasons WoW is bleeding subscriptions over the past 2 years! He is one of the reasons (his game change choices) I left WoW.

    I wonder what Riot is up to, they’ve been hunting for top guys around the world for a while now yes? perhaps they want to make something grand and break the cloning trend we’re stuck with today?
    One can only hope.

      New job, new life. I don’t think He is that bad and Riot won’t let it happen.

      WoW has always been a casual MMO, and its PVP always shit.
      Even though the open world alliance vs alliance concept was sweet, it works better in more pvp oriented games.

        They are barely keeping the current game on the top of the market. A new game would spell their demise.
