Blizzard North 'streamlined'

For 'one key project'.

Blizzard regrouped a bit last week, "streamlining [Blizzard North] into one core group in order to focus their development efforts on one key project", and elevating lead programmer Rick Seis to the position of team lead. The move is in response to the high profile resignation of Blizzard North's three co-founders and outspoken vice president Bill Roper, who departed late last month to set up their own company.

Blizzard president Mike Morhaime described Rick as "the natural choice to take over the reins", because he "has been a driving force from day one, and because of his history with us and his experience as a lead programmer on the Diablo series".
