During a preliminary show as part of Blizzcon 2017, the president of Blizzard told where he got the money to launch the studio in 1991.

Allen Adham ( co-founder of Blizzard –  ) and I invested 10 thousand dollars. To give my part, I borrowed 15 thousand from my grandmother. She did not take any interest from me, and it was very noble of her. Even before we made the first games, before we did anything at all, this money became our starting point.

Morheim made some semblance of a contract with his grandmother on which they signed on February 4, 1991. According to the “contract”, the future president of the gaming company pledged to pay $ 100 each month.

Grandma and Grandpa always supported me very much. She did not play games, but she was always very proud of everything I did.

Now I understand that if I then saw what we achieve, it would greatly relieve my stress. To myself, I would say: “Just relax and concentrate on the games.”
