    Yeah, because they assign the title of Senior Producer (on Diablo 3, even!) to "no one important".

    Try Valve for starters. Also a whole host of smaller developers. Given Blizzard's current state of putting money grabbing above everything else, I wouldn't be surprised if people that want to make great games first and foremost are leaving the company.

    Whats written on Diablo fans :
    ""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.”

    Can someone explain this or by kill it he also meant amazing, but I highly doubt that, what do u think guys ?
    Hmmmm you are actually correct! Here is the original tweet from Steve Parker, and it indeed says "and those guys are going to kill it with Diablo". Could be interpreted several ways, but it's interesting that blizzplanet.com would change his words in their article.

    Edit: I just noticed Steve Parker's next few tweets after that:

    "Bad phrasing on my part. I mean they're going to do a great job."

    and

    "Yeah, probably should have used a better verb than "kill it" about D3. They're going to do an amazing job."

    (source)

    So, that clears it up I guess.

    Someone didn't read next tweets:
    "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."

    Because they're looking for a producer for another project, maybe?

    I dunno. Isn't the basic job of a producer making sure the development of a game runs efficiently, and isn't that one of Blizzard's main weaknesses as a developer?
    I'd say losing a lead producer could have an impact, but not necessarily a negative one.

    Not that I'm complaining about Blizzard taking time with their games. That would be silly.

    Don't understand why people try to read into this so much. He left his job, there can be literally millions of reasons for it. Maybe he didn't want to work the extra hours that are needed for a game like Diablo because he has a family and young children to take care of. Maybe he is in a job where he has no potential to grow, and wants a job where their is more potential. Maybe his wife got a job offer in another town, and she has this amazing job, and he thinks it would be better to move as a family there and get a job there. Etc.
