Team 2 logo

Team 2 is one of the design teams of Blizzard Entertainment, in charge of World of Warcraft. As of November 2018, it consists of between 100–300 individuals.[1]


Before and during the development of World of Warcraft, Blizzard only had a single internal development team, which managed every videogame released, except the Diablo series. After the release of World of Warcraft, it was clear that Blizzard needed a dedicated team to update and expand the game, so they split the workforce and created Team 2 to continue the development of World of Warcraft, while Team 1 would take charge of the StarCraft II project. Blizzard thus started to identify their internal teams by a number.[2]

In February 2019, after a round of layoffs at Activision-Blizzard, it was announced that the team would be expanded.[3]
