Wilson offers zero hints as to what his attention is turning to now, though he does promise that fans can expect the same level of commitment as a new director steps in in Diablo 3. “We have lots of things planned for the future, and those plans will carry forward as normal. I also won’t be abandoning the team, and will remain available to them during the transition period while we determine who will take over duties as game director,” he writes.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Jay Wilson is one of the chief figures responsible for shepherding Diablo 3 into being, and after seven years of working on the game he’s now ready to call it quits. Wilson won’t be leaving Blizzard, but he’s now moving on to work on “something new,” as he writes in a Battle.net forum post (via GI.biz).
As you probably gathered from the preceding quote, there’s also no word yet on who will be taking over for Wilson on Diablo 3.
