Max Schaefer was co-founder and president of Blizzard North and one of the creators of Diablo, Diablo II and Lord of Destruction. Max was one of the “big four” who left Blizzard North in 2003, but he’s not forgotten the Lord of Terror. He shared his thoughts with us on last weekend’s announcement of Diablo 3.
I was pleased and excited to hear the announcement of Diablo 3! We’ve been hoping for this for a long time. It will be fun to see how the new team interprets the Diablo universe, and if anyone is going to do it, it should be Blizzard. We know it will be of the highest quality and standards, and that Blizzard wouldn’t release anything less than a first-class game.
Max went on to found Flagship Studios with several other long time employees of Blizzard North, and is now working on Mythos, a free MMORPG that is currently in public beta, for which we have a community site.
