Diablo 3 director Jay Wilson is transitioning to a different project within Blizzard, he announced Thursday.
“I’ve reached a point creatively where I’m looking forward to working on something new,” Wilson shared on the official Diablo 3 forums. “I will be moving off of the Diablo III project and transitioning elsewhere within Blizzard. This decision was not an easy one for me, and not one I made quickly, but ultimately it’s what I feel is right.”
The transition period will occur “over the course of the next several weeks” and in that time Wilson will still be working with the Diablo 3 team to ensure a smooth transition.
One question remains, however, and that is who will fill his role.
“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,” Wilson said. “We’re looking forward to finding this person and hearing what kind of fresh ideas they can bring to the table.”
