    After it was reported that Blizzard Entertainment was hiring a new game director for a Diablo project, it was unknown what that meant for Diablo III's current director, Josh Mosqueira. Now, Blizzard has confirmed that Mosqueira has left the company altogether.
    "With Diablo III in a good place at this point, Josh felt that now was a good time to pursue other opportunities with minimal impact to the team," Blizzard told Polygon. "We'll be filling the director role either from within Blizzard or externally."
    Thanks to an amazing team and community! Forever #diablo

    Mosqueira replaced Jay Wilson as Diablo III's game director in 2013. As for Wilson, he has since left Blizzard.
    Wilson and Mosqueira aren't the only recent high-profile departures from Blizzard. The lead designer on Diablo III, Leonard Boyarsky, left the developer earlier this year.
    Concerning the job listing, it remains to be seen if it's for a sequel to Diablo III, a new expansion, or something else. The position is located at Blizzard's headquarters in Irvine, California, and the job ad was published this week, according to BlizzPro. The listing calls for someone with "outstanding communications skills, proven experience in creative direction, strong ability in system design, and a stellar track record of shipping AAA games."
    A successful candidate will "lead the Diablo series into the future."
