Blizzard Former COO donates His Personal Collection


How generous is Paul Sam? Pretty generous if the donation of his enormous Blizzard collections, such as Diablo, StarCraft, and Warcraft to The Strong National Museum of Play if of any indication.

Paul Sams  once served as COO of Blizzard Entertainment and president of the France-based, Blizzard Entertainment SAS in Versailles. Sams joined Blizzard in 1996 and served in several roles, including as the director of business development and senior vice president of global business operations, before becoming COO in 2004. He served in that role for 11 years and as president of Blizzard Entertainment SAS for three years, from 2012-2015. In June 2015, Ready at Dawn, the studio behind The Order:1886 brought Sams onboard as its new CEO.

Sams’ personal collection comes from his nearly two-decade stint as a Blizzard employee. It contains copies of games, old and new, including those that date back to the early ’90s when Blizzard went by Silicon & Synapse and developed The Lost Vikings and RPM Racing. He also donated some marketing materials like posters, pins, jewelry, and toys.

Kudos Paul Sam for contributing to the history of gaming.
