Diablo III loses senior producer

Blizzard’s Steve Parker is no longer at the company, he announced on Twitter over the weekend. Acting as the senior producer on the it’s-so-close-we-can-almost-touch-it Diablo III, the timing of departure  may raise an eyebrow or two, but the game will still be stellar according to the man.

“I’m no longer working at Blizzard or on D3,” the tweet reads (via). “I’ve had a great five years there and those guys are going to kill it with Diablo.”

Diablo III still lacks a precise date but is expected “early” this year.
