Diablo III Senior Game Producer Steve Parker Departs Blizzard

Diablo III Senior Game Producer Steve Parker announced via Twitter he is no longer working at Blizzard Entertainment. He didn’t specify the reason.

      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 do an amazing job with Diablo.”

It’s unknown if his departure has a connection with the recent announcement of System Changes, or if the game is pretty much ready (except for the cleaning up process), and thus his work is finished and he’s moving on to other projects.

In a later tweet, Steve Parker commented “Thanks! Looking forward to bigger and better things.” Follow up comments via Twitter don’t show any hard feelings with the studios prompting to think he departed for personal reasons, and to explore other career opportunities.

      @retailsails Gotcha. Best of luck in your future endeavors. I salute you for your contributions to Blizzard. /salute

    Thanks, Chris. I like to post a bit of diversity outside and around the game stuff, or simply posting CM forum feeds. Topics that might be interesting to a special niche of players.
