THE BUZZ: As we get closer to the official launch of Diablo III, the game’s senior producer makes an interesting announcement.

EGM’s TAKE: The senior producer of Diablo III leaving Blizzard? Oh no! What is going to mean for the game’s development?

To be honest—at this point, probably not much.

Now ex-producer Steven Parker took to Twitter to make the announcement. “Hey Twitter, I’m no longer working at Blizzard or on D3. I’ve had a great 5 years there and those guys are going to kill it with Diablo,” Parker said.

Parker then decided that “kill” might not be the best term to use given how long fans have been waiting for the game—and how unnerved they could be from this announcement.

“Yeah, probably should have used a better verb than ‘kill it’ about D3. They’re going to do an amazing job.”

While Parker hasn’t stated the reason for his leaving—or what he may be doing next—I will again say that I don’t see this as any cause for concern in terms of the quality or future of Diablo III. The game was obviously a huge product in development for quite some time, and it’s quite likely that Parker simply wanted to move on to other things after being putting in his time on the project.
