Few gaming companies have as good a first 25 years as Blizzard.

The publisher and developer of hit franchises like Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft celebrates its anniversary today, and we’ve done our part to mark the occasion with an in-depth look at the company’s history and an interview with chief executive officer Mike Morhaime. Now, Blizzard has released a video looking back on those first 25 years while thanking its fans. You can watch it below.

Blizzard is one of biggest names in the industry, with World of Warcraft alone generating billions of dollars in revenue. Even as the popularity of that online multiplayer game declines (it came out back in 2004), Blizzard still has successful, active games with Diablo III, StarCraft II, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. This year, it will release a new franchise, the team-based shooter Overwatch.
