While not directly related to Diablo 3, this is to do with one of the ex Diablo 2 designers, one who was quite well known as one of the people behind the art in Diablo 2′s expansion pack.
Many people would also recognise him for his work on Flagship Studio’s now failed game, Hellgate London, however what many more people likely will recognise him for is Shenk the Overseer (a monster in Diablo 2′s Act V name after Phil).
After the closure of Flagship Studios, we haven’t heard much from Phil, however it was revealed today that he is starting a new studio named “Gravity Bear” (a very weird name in my opinion), however there is nothing else revealed about the company at this stage. We also know that another ex Flagship Studios employee, Kevin Klemmick (who was the software engineer on Hellgate London) will also make up the team.
Now we just have to wait until they decide on what games they want to pursue and hopefully we’ll see some other competition to D3 come out as well, just to add to the variety of gaming we can enjoy later
