Overview David Brevik, the veteran game developer best known for co-founding the studio that became Blizzard North, will be delivering a Classic Game Postmortem of the studio's groundbreaking game Diablo at GDC 2016!
Brevik was instrumental in the development of the game and its sequel Diablo II, but those are just two highlights of his lengthy career in the game industry. Brevik has since gone on to co-found Flagship Studios, take a lead creative role at Turbine on Dungeons & Dragons Online, and serve as a chief executive for Marvel Heroes developer Gazillion.
