    [​IMG]Diablo 3 lead world designer Leonard Boyarsky has now departed Blizzard and taken a new job at Obsidian.

    Before joining Blizzard, Leonard Boyarsky was Fallout art director and Troika Games co-founder. Boyarsky has been with Blizzard for a decade.

    The departure was confirmed on his Facebook timeline and via a post from Obsidian's Tim Cain.

    We're not sure what Boyarsky is working on now at Obsidian but it could be the recently announced Tyranny.

    Thanks RPGCodex

    This guy had a huge hand in creating some amazing worlds. I hope Obsidian treats him well.

    Wow doesn't seem so fine.. the subs are sinking badly. Of course they still make lots of cash but I have some doubts if Legion will even be able to recover this time.

    Leonard Boyarsky also draw art for couple of WoW TCG cards.

    1UP: I actually associate your name with the overall look in Fallout, since you were both a designer and the art director for Fallout. Have you contributed to the art in Diablo III?

    LB: Well, yes and no. I haven't done any actual art on it, but working with art director Brian Morrisroe and the artists, I do a lot of the same kind of things I did as the art director of Fallout (even though I'm not for this one). My goal is somewhat the same: Create a very believable, lived-in world that people can feel when they play it. It's a back-and-forth, and Brian is a great artist and art director. I have my own personal art release by drawing World of Warcraft cards on the side. [Laughs.] I tried contributing in the beginning, but the art team is so far beyond me in terms of speed and talent. I'd ask for a week to do a drawing, and they'd give one to me right away.
