It was announced today that Diablo 3's Jay Wilson was stepping down from his position as director. Jay Wilson had been on the development team for seven years and had decided to move onto other projects for Blizzard.
In a post on the Diablo 3 Forums Wilson shared that this decision was no easy decision. Blizzard has already agreed to transferring him into a new project that has yet to be revealed. Wilson assured gamer's in the post that this will not affect the state of Diablo 3 development for upcoming features. Blizzard is planning on filling the director decision by opening a job posting in order to explore every opportunity to find the best individual for the job. Wilson finished the post stating that patch 1.0.7 and that the PTR is live.
With this news we wish Jay Wilson a farewell from his work on Diablo 3. We are grateful for what you've done for us as gamer's and we look forward to seeing what the future holds with you and the Blizzard project you will be contributing to!
