Jay Wilson Leaves Blizzard

It looks as though Jay Wilson has left Blizzard. While some are speculating about the reason for his departure, Wilson says it is to pursue his passion for writing. Being a game designer for Blizzard seems like it would be a pretty good job, you guys should probably dust off your resume and get get over to the HR folks at Blizzard.

Jay Wilson tweets of his departure from Blizzard Entertainment, saying: "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." Wilson served as project lead on Diablo III until January 2013, a run that was not without its controversy, and while it's not clear what he's been working on since then, his Twitter profile still refers to him as "Game Director @ Blizzard."
