Diablo Creator Behind New Marvel MMOS

It's been announced today that Gazillion Entertainment, the people behind the upcoming Marvel MMO, have hired Blizzard veteran David Brevik to run the game's development studio.

Brevik - who not only helped found Blizzard North but also helped create the Diablo series - will take up the role of studio director at Gargantuan, the San Mateo-based crew currently working on Marvel Universe.

If you're wondering why they hired a former Diablo guy, and not a former WoW guy, Brevik left Blizzard in 2003 to go work for Flagship (Hellgate), and when that went bust, Turbine (Lord of the Rings Online), so he knows his way around an MMO or two.
