With “Monkey Island meets Diablo” action-RPG DeathSpank officially out the door, Ron Gilbert’s making his way toward the exit as well.

“I wanted to let all the Premium Gold Level Grumpy Gamer subscribers know that I left Hothead. As DeathSpank ends the creative and production phases and start down that long and winding road of certification and testing of the XBox and PS3 and [REDACTED] versions, it’s looking quite amazing and is damn funny.  So, to quote my childhood hero George W.

“I will be working closely with EA and Hothead on the PR for DeathSpank as the release date of [REDACTED] draws closer,” he added, presumably referring to an unannounced PC version of DeathSpank.
