'Diablo 3' News & Updates: Blizzard Entertainment Is Looking For A New Director After Josh Mosqueira Left
"Diablo 3" game director Josh Mosqueira has just left Blizzard Entertainment which is now scouring the globe for a talent that could "lead the Diablo series into the future."
According to a job posting in Blizzard's website, the developer is looking for a game director to continue Mosqueira's work. According to the post, the company wants a director who could serve as "the vision holder for the franchise" and would set creative goals for the "Diablo" team.
"With Diablo III in a good place at this point, Josh felt that now was a good time to pursue other opportunities with minimal impact to the team. We'll be filling the director role either from within Blizzard or externally," Blizzard told Polygon in a statement.
Mosqueira had served as the director for "Diablo" in 2013 in place of Jay Wilson. On Saturday, a post in his official Twitter account revealed his leave from the company, saying: "Thanks to an amazing team and community! Forever #diablo."
Now, Blizzard Entertainment is seeking a great talent to bring "Diablo" into the future. The job posting also clarified that the company is an "Equal Opportunity Employer" not partial to any race, color, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, and other characteristics that may lead to discrimination.
Aside from the director's post, Forbes revealed that there are more positions vacated in the "Diablo" team. This includes the posts of former writers Leonard Boyarsky and Brian Kindregan as well as designers Don Vu who and John Yang.
With the elite team gone, "Diablo 3" is not expected to have any major expansion any time soon. Forbes said the game will remain in its "maintenance mode."
"Diablo 3" was rolled out to Windows PC and Mac users in May 2012 and was followed up by a role-playing expansion titled "Reaper of Souls" two years later. In August 2014, Blizzard released the "Ultimate Evil Edition," the game's console version.
