Diablo III director moving on to new project at Blizzard

0

Hopefully one that's less stressful

After seven years of working on Diablo III, game director Jay Wilson has announced his decision to work elsewhere within Blizzard. In a forum post, he writes that "I've reached a point creatively where I'm looking forward to working on something new," reflecting on the experience as "one of the most challenging and rewarding periods of my life."

As for the state of the ever-changing game, "We have lots of things planned for the future, and those plans will carry forward as normal," he explains. "I also won't be abandoning the team, and will remain available to them during the transition period while we determine who will take over duties as game director. To that point, you shouldn't be surprised if you see a job posting for a game director on Diablo III, as we want to make sure we explore every opportunity to find the best possible leadership for the project. We're looking forward to finding this person and hearing what kind of fresh ideas they can bring to the table."

Wilson continues, saying: "While we're not perfect, we try to make the best decisions we can with the information and knowledge we have at the time. That doesn't mean we always make the right decisions, but if we made a mistake then I feel we've made an exceptional effort to correct it. This is what you can always count on from Blizzard: that we will stand by our games and make every effort to continually improve them over time."
