Travis was very much at the forefront of Diablo 3’s development in 2012 for Reaper of Souls and was a key designer of Loot 2.0. Travis had worked previously on World of Warcraft for eight years prior to joining the Diablo team.
Travis left Blizzard in 2018 to join Phoenix Labs to work on Dauntless. Travis was always friendly and had a lot of time for us the few times we met him. Here’s an old pic meeting Flux back in 2013.
Our deepest condolences to the Day family. This is a really sad loss.
