Some recruitment news specific to the Diablo franchise. Former Tales from the Borderlands creator and Mafia 3 world designer Harrison Pink has joined the Diablo team.
Pink was previously at Telltale Games working on The Walking Dead before joining Hangar 13 as a world designer to work on Mafia 3, a game which received quite a mixed reception. The game world was one of the better aspects of Mafia 3, and as that was designed as an open-world game, you have to wonder if Blizzard is thinking along those lines for a new Diablo.
Pink announced his involvement with Blizzard on Twitter.
