Do we think that he made enough money to retire to Hawai and has no further aspirations or being a game dev?lol I love how its now a 'fact' that Alex was fired because of this and not just speculation.
While tinfoil hats are trying to lump Tigole in with this, I don't think that was the case. It seems more plausible that it was just part of all the OG Blizzard getting the boot or leaving and he got forced out as well. If you look at the other narratives coming out of this (billion dollar franchise pushes and prior indications that Jeff was pushing back against turning Overwatch into another Call of Duty mass production), I think it is more likely he got pushed out because he said "no" too many times to Activision higher ups and no longer had the protection inside Blizzard to do that.
Alex had a pretty substantial property even back in the old days from what I remember of pictures of FoH get-togethers.
