With the finish line in sight, Blizzard Entertainment’s senior producer, Steve Parker, has announced his departure from not only Diablo 3, but Blizzard as a whole. The news hit the Twitter-sphere last Saturday:
Hey Twitter, I’m no longer working at Blizzard or on D3. I’ve had a great 5 years there and those guys are going to kill it with Diablo.
Parker avoided any specifics, but he did mention that he’s looking forward to “bigger and better things.”
As for Diablo 3 — in typical Blizzard fashion, the game will be released when it’s ready. In other words: the official release date is still forthcoming.
