Blizzard acquires another national treasure – Rod Fergusson

Rod Fergusson

Rod Fergusson, tweeted out some rather surprising news today.

From March 2020, Rod will be leaving The Coalition and jumping the fence to join the team at Blizzard. More specifically, he will be overseeing the Diablo franchise:

Whilst this is a huge blow to the Gears of War franchise and The Coalition as a whole, it’s a massive win for Blizzard and Diablo.

Rod has been working in the Gears franchise for the past 15 years, so I guess we shouldn’t be shocked that he has made, the no doubt hard decision, to move onto a different franchise.

As a part of his announcements tweets Rod advises that Gears Tactics is in good hands:

Blizzard have now collected their second pillar from the Xbox family over the past year with Mike Ybarra making the shift to join them as their executive VP and General Manager only a few months ago.

From the team at Real Game Media, we say “Thank you Rod and good luck!”.
