Michio Okamura
A founding developer of the Diablo license, Michio has over ten years of experience at building and maintaining a multimillion dollar license. Evolving from artist to designer to leader, Michio has always strived to achieve the most optimal balance between challenging game play, appealing visuals and compelling world settings.

Work Experience : A veteran artist with over 10 years of experience working for Blizzard North on the Diablo franchise. He was the Lead Artist for Diablo and created the concept design for majority of the characters and monsters in the game, most notably Diablo himself.

On Diablo II, Michio was responsible for further development of the Diablo mythos. As the Senior Artist, he created character and monster concept designs, including the second incarnation of Diablo for this sequel.

After Diablo II, he worked as an Art Director establishing the pipeline and creative direction for several internal projects. Michio was the Creative Lead for Blizzard North on a yet unannounced sequel before his departure.

Would be great if he really worked on Diablo III, but it'll probably take years till it hits the shelves. And i don't want it to be another MMORPG, it should offer a good SP campaign besides MP.

edit: highlighted the important part

Diablo 2 is still the best made game of all time in my book. Hell, If they just gave diablo 3 pretty graphics but kept the same EVERYTHING. I would still play it, same story and all.
