LOS ANGELES ( - Robin Williams will live on in
the "World of Warcraft."

The Associated Press reports that Blizzard Entertainment
revealed at an event Thursday for the interactive role-playing

died of an apparent suicide earlier this week.

"We haven't decided, but it will most likely be a character
inspired by him or some of his favorite roles of the past," lead
game designer Ion Hazzikostas said.

"All of us are massive Robin Williams fans," Hazzikostas
added. "We love and appreciate his work. We grew up watching his
