Chris Metzen’s going away present is this amazing statue

Chris Metzen, Senior Vice President of Story and Franchise Development at Blizzard, announced his retirement on Monday and it turns out it was effective today. To commemorate Metzen’s contributions not only to Blizzard, but the gaming community, a ceremony was held presenting him with a mockup of a statue of him and Baby Winston from the Overwatch recall animated short.

Though the statue is still being made and will be delivered to him at a later date. You can check out a larger picture of it after the jump and read more about his role at the company in Anne Stickney’s Know Your Lore about Chris Metzen.
