Blizzard North closed

Diablo 2, despite being ancient, was given a new patch earlier this month. The hard work involved wasDiablo rewarded with Blizzard shutting down the offices of the people who made it.

Blizzard have closed their San Francisco office. The majority of the employees have been given packages to relocate to Irvine, California, and join the main office. (Note to minority: You have our condolences.) Said employees will be working on an unannounced project, which some seem to believe will be Diablo 3.
