In news that is sure to make complaining purist Diablo fans happy, it has been confirmed that Diabo III's art director, Brian Morrisroe has resigned from Blizzard. He is the man responsible for spearheading Diablo III's current visual style, which caused controversy when a bunch of pathetic spoiled brats complained that the game was far too beautiful for a Diablo game. Also it had too many rainbows. 

Blizzard had this to say to MTV Multiplayer when they asked about Blizzard's new job opening. It also contained bad news for those aforementioned bitchy brats:

Regarding Brian, he recently resigned to form a startup technology company (outside the game industry), which is why we’ve posted about the open position. This change won’t impact the game…we’re really pleased with the look and feel that Brian helped create for Diablo III, and the new person we bring onboard will work with the other artists on the team to maintain the art style moving forward.

Good luck to Brian, who has won my heartfelt respect for indirectly helping to show just how ridiculous some self-styled "fans" of a videogame can be and for creating some really pretty rainbows. Good on Blizzard for sticking to its artistic guns, too.

Diablo III has had a tumultuous history to say the least. Always-online DRM, the Real-Money Auction House, and loot problems plagued the original release -- all issues that took months to address. It's a hot-button issue even...more

After middling around with the idea that the Xbox One version of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition would run at 900p, Blizzard has confirmed that due to a day-one patch, it will now have full parity with the PS4 edition ...more
