It has finally happened, Jay Wilson has revealed he is leaving Blizzard. Jay posted a series of Tweets earlier today to spread the news.
“Sad to say after 10 of the best years of my life this will be my last week at Blizzard,” Wilson writes. He adds that “I’m leaving to pursue my original passion, writing. It’s what I was doing when I fell into this job, and I’ve always wanted to return to it. I will dearly miss my friends at Blizzard. They’ve been the best, most dedicated, most passionate group of people I’ve ever met.”
Jay had a rough ride during the release of Diablo 3 and was blamed for many of the terrible decisions that were made during the game’s development. He will also be known for his classic comment of “F**k that loser” comment following Rushster’s interview with David Brevik about the state of Diablo 3 on release back in 2012. Let’s also not forget he loved to double everything.
Jay moved on from Diablo 3 when Josh took over which was not only good for Jay but also the game. We wish Jay the best of luck in his future ventures.
