Rod Fergusson swaps The Coalition for Blizzard

We're used to hearing about departures from Activision Blizzard, but this time it's the other way. Rod Fergusson, best known for the Gears of War franchise, is leaving Microsoft and The Coalition to take over the Diablo franchise.

Rod Fergusson swaps The Coalition for Blizzard

After 15 years on the Gears of War series, Canadian developer Rod Fergusson announced on Twitter his departure from The Coalition studio he headed up.

Beginning in March, he will work at Blizzard to oversee the Diablo franchise. It's likely he will have a significant influence on Diablo 4, knowing that player expectations are high and the pressure from the community is particularly strong after all the setbacks the studio has experienced in recent years.

All that's left to do is wish him well.
