Three Blizzard and Blizzard North veterans gave a talk at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, during which there was some red hot Diablo 3 chat. The triumvirate also discussed Blizzard more generally, however, and one topic that came up was the closure of the much-beloved Blizzard North.

Blizzard North, originally founded as an independent studio by Diablo creator David Brevik, was one of very few studios that was able to effectively work with Blizzard in an era where most external projects got cancelled. The decision to close the studio in August 2005 still rankles some to this day, even though Blizzard would absorb much of its key talent and go on to develop more Diablo games itself.
