Blizzard North, the division of Blizzard that made the Diablo series of games, has now been officially closed since so many of its employees have left it to form other companies. Gamespot PC has the story:
In a statement today, Blizzard president and founder Mike Morhaime said the relocation will "improve our efficiency as a company" and "represents an opportunity for all of our teams to have regular, direct input on each other's projects."The remaining Bliz North employees have been amalgamated into the main Blizzard operation. As for Diablo 3, further speculation suggests that its official announcement will be at the BlizzCon event which will take place on October 28-29 of this year.
Those from Blizzard North who were offered relocation packages "will continue work on an unannounced project," which most believe is the third installment in the hugely popular Diablo series.
