Rod Fergusson Is Joining Blizzard To Work On Diablo

Rod Fergusson is closing one door and opening another as his tenure working on Gears of War is over.

Fergusson and his team at The Coalition have been lead developers on the Gears series for a while and last year’s Gears 5 and this year’s Gears Tactics will serve as his final contribution to the series he’s worked on for almost two decades.

“Starting in March, I will join Blizzard to oversee the Diablo franchise. Leaving is bittersweet as I love our Gears family, the fans, and everyone at The Coalition and Xbox. Thank you, it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you all.”

Good luck, Rod!


Bobby has been gaming since he was old enough to walk. Since then, the interest has only grown stronger, and here we are today. Follow Bobby on Twitter, and just go with it. @bpashalidis
