Jay Wilson, the Diablo 3 Game Director who recently stepped down from his position, has pledged that the rest of the development team will continue upgrading the role-playing dungeon crawler over time.

Diablo 3 came out in May and, while it became a sales success, quite a lot of fans weren't happy with the experience delivered by the team at Blizzard Entertainment led by Jay Wilson.

As such, many rejoiced when they heard that Wilson has stepped down from his position as Diablo 3 game director and will now lead a new project for Blizzard.

Before leaving, Wilson also emphasized on the Battle.net forums that the rest of the team will continue to improve Diablo 3 and fix some of the problems reported by players.

"While we're not perfect, we try to make the best decisions we can with the information and knowledge we have at the time. That doesn't mean we always make the right decisions, but if we made a mistake then I feel we've made an exceptional effort to correct it," he said.

"This is what you can always count on from Blizzard: that we will stand by our games and make every effort to continually improve them over time. We heard the feedback and suggestions from the community."

Wilson exemplified this statement by highlighting new features for Diablo 3 that were included in different updates, like the Paragon system or the Monster Power setting.

"Our commitment to making our games as good as they can be is what has always defined Blizzard as a game studio, and that commitment never ends for us at a ship date. With your help, we'll continue to play, debate, and improve Diablo III, as we've done with every Blizzard game," he concluded.

Do you agree with Wilson that Blizzard has continuously improved Diablo 3 since its release or do you think the studio should be spending more time on the dungeon crawler?
