Under Fergusson’s direction, the Gears series pushed the boundaries and will remain one of the most played franchises on Xbox, 2019’s Gears 5  was the pinnacle of his work, so his move to Blizzard is the right step for the Diablo series after all Blizzard need to redeem themselves and with someone with the passion and determination like Rod, hopefully, he can steer the franchise in the right direction.

The Coalition is yet to name a replacement.
