Whipple went on to say that he is looking forward to his future and is excited to just be a fan again. Saying..
“As a lifelong fan and rabid gamer it makes me giddy thinking about being able to sit in the audience at BlizzCon, watching a stream, or reading the newest blog posts, and seeing whatever’s in store next–for the first time.”
