Diablo 3 Lead Designer Leaves Blizzard to Join Obisidian

   Diablo III's lead designer is no longer a worker at Blizzard. Leonard Boyarsky, who was also the original Fallout's art director, has quit his post at the Overwatch developer to join Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian in an unknown role.
    The news comes via a couple of Facebook posts and tweets. Boyarsky's Facebook page says he left Blizzard this year. Obsidian producer and Fallout creator Timothy Cain posted a picture to Facebook that said, "New co-worker. 

Hope he doesn't talk too much." The picture features Boyarsky and Cain looking at each other dramatically. The two developers worked together on games like Fallout, Fallout 2, and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.

The news was then later confirmed by Obsidian's Twitter account. It's not yet known what Boyarsky will do or what project he'll work on.
