Now that the fans are bitter about D3, it's time he jump ship.

It doesn't sound like he had anything else in the works, does it? Not at all like Alex Mayberry leaving Blizzard for position at Cloud Imperium/Star Citizen. Considering, too, that Blizzard were conducting a market research survey to ascertain whether or not there's enough D3 interest to make a second expansion worth their while, and.... yeah, it kinda looks like RoS's 2.7M copies may still have been well below expectations, and not something that Blizzard think will turn around anytime soon.
All speculation, ofc.; I don't expect that anyone involved will say, for years anyway.07/03/2014 01:16 PMPosted by Krakhow will this impact Diablo development?
who will replace him?
Those are the thousand-dollar questions, aren't they? Answers to come Soon™, I guess.

Awesome games Rob! Thanks for everything!
07/03/2014 12:12 PMPosted by OldSchoolThe man claiming responsibility for the decisions that turned D3 from an awesome-looking PC-centric ARPG, into effectively the PC port of a console title, leaving? A lot depends on who replaces him, but it might be good news for this game, if whoever takes over Diablo's creative director file gives the development team the freedom they need to make this into the game it always should have been. I wonder if they'll maybe re-think the DRM decision now?

hope the water is warm!
