    Blizzard Supposedly Looses Veteran CEO? (Walks off the job)

    Pretty much what the thread title says, i have not got much info on this, but apparantly one of the team leaders walked out/walked off the Diablo III game and then company. Anyone have a name on this guy?, or is this some kind of controversial rumour?

    That's a complete negative from my side, not even a rumor about it until I found your post. So don't think it's a quit, unless it's a quit with terms..

    Veteran CEO is leading the D3 team these days huh? I'm assuming you are talking about http://www.blizzplanet.com/blog/comm...parts-blizzard

    Here's a hint: It's on the front page of the very site you are on

    Are you asking if somebody did or are you just looking for a name because you KNOW somebody did?

    It wasn't the CEO, it was a Senior Game Producer, and he most likely left because his job was done and was moving on to new projects.

    Been there only for 5 years? No one important then.

    He is not CEO. He finished his job on Diablo then he left. That's all.

    Ya the blizzurds loose like belt and pant fall on ground. This grave mistake for the blizzard team now the deckard cain not to be able to use horadric cube. Nobody stay while and listen - very sad. Do this mean the D3 to be fall on ground cancel since they loosed him?

    Infracted - If you are going to post something - make it readable. Your posting history shows this shouldn't be a problem, so it shouldn't be a problem here either.

    Trust your doubt. Always fight for your beliefs. That is the path beyond thought.

    If he finished his job and left then why is "Blizzard Entertainment is currently looking for a Senior Producer." ? If they are seeking someone to replace him then its not just a finished job. There is more to this than they are telling us.....

    Don't know but he is not really big name in Blizzard so I don't care.

    we'll never know, because media silence is almost certainly part of his severance package :P

    looses eh?

    anyways he isn't a very recognizable name so him leaving probably isn't a big deal

    Probably didn't agree with where D3 was going, and being wise it seems, chose his words carefully.

    People usually just don't bounce, especially from titles that are super anticipated and slated to do well (we hope).

    he probably left b/c like other said he finished his job and thinks the game is rdy for release and blizz is nitpicking the hell out of the game.

    Can I translate this? I can honestly understand most of this post. Not a personal attack by any means.
