After reporting that Blizzard was looking for a new director for an upcoming title Diablo, it was not known what would happen to Josh Mosqueira, who was in charge of directing Diablo III.
Now the video game company confirmed that Mosqueira is no longer working with Blizzard anymore. “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. We’ll be filling the director role either from within Blizzard or externally,” said the developer in a statement.
Meanwhile, Josh Mosqueira thanked his team and the game community on his official Twitter account.
Thanks to an amazing team and community! Forever #diablo

With this there are already 3 senior developers who leave Blizzard, it must be remembered that Jay Wilson decided to leave the industry, and design director Leonard Boyarski also left the studio earlier this year.
Blizzard is looking for new creative candidates who decide to take a new draft of Diablo in his hands.
