Diablo IV – Former Gears of War boss to lead Diablo franchise

Rod Ferguson, the former boss of The Coalition, the studio tasked by Microsoft to handle the Gears of War franchise, is heading to Blizzard Entertainment to head up the Diablo franchise. The Coalition has launched three Gears of War titles (including a remake) and has worked with the likes of Mediatonic on Gears Pop and Splash Damage on Gears Tactics. The Diablo franchise has been on a downward turn since the many issues plaguing Diablo III surfaced during the launch period, and especially with the Diablo Immortal debacle.
