Rod Fergusson, Studio Head of The Coalition and Long Time Gears of War Lead, Departs Company for Blizzard

Another major name in the industry is leaving the company they helped build.

After Dan Houser’s departure from Rockstar yesterday, Rod Fergusson just announced he is leaving The Coalition. Fergusson has long been a lead on the Gears of War franchise, first at Epic Games and more recently as the Studio Head for The Coalition. Fergusson announced his departure via Twitter.

Fergusson will be joining Blizzard to help oversee the development of future Diablo titles.

Our Take

This is major news as Fergusson has been a shepherd for the Gears of War franchise for a very long time and was a big part of the IP being reborn under The Coalition. It will be interesting to see who takes over in the studio for Xbox Game Studios. We wish Rod all the best at Blizzard and can’t wait to see his impact on the highly anticipated Diablo 4!
