Ben Brode Introduces the Team Members of Second Dinner

Ben Brode, who you’ll remember as the director of Hearthstone who left Blizzard back in April, has most definitely been busy in his time away from the company. A new video from Brode offers a quick look of the Second Dinner team he has taken on, which include several former Hearthstone devs.

Second Dinner now consists of a total of five developers who are coming together to make games. These names include former Hearthstone production director Yong Woo; former senior client engineer Michael Schweitzer; former executive producer Hamilton Chu; and former Blizzard senior concept artist Jomaro Kindred.

All of the new arrivals look to be taking up the same positions for Second Dinner that they had in their prior jobs at Blizzard in what looks like a smaller but no less comfortable new studio space.

While the announcement video doesn’t give us any firm detail on just what Second Dinner is up to, the number of former Hearthstone devs in employ does seem to suggest a CCG of some sort, or at the very least some manner of online game. You can watch Brode’s happy face and the other faces of his new team in the embed below.

Our Thoughts

The energy and charisma of Mr. Brode is too infectious to ignore and we’re glad to see him in front of a camera and doing what he loves once again. While it’s still clearly early days for whatever’s next for Second Dinner, we are eagerly awaiting word on that front.
