Dude, just read their countdown thread, the admin gives some hints such as:

for the last 7 years I've been waiting for some type of simple yes or no if a Diablo game is in the works. Not only have I waited, but I run this site on and off, and, to date, I've PAID thousands of dollars out of my pocket to do it all. Do you want to know the only thing I'm getting in return for all this hard work? A single piece of info that I know about a month before you do....

It Has Nothing To Do With A Patch


etc...

And Blizz hiring people to work with the DI&DII team? Come on, this is big!

It would suck if it's an MMO. That way only the hardcore will raid Diablo etc. I'd like a good SP game with big multiplayer capabilities. I just don't like the idea of only a handful of people getting kill the big bosses and such. Besides that, they have WoW, I don't think they need another MMO.

QFMT!!!!!


I am so excited about this game. Ever since I played the second one, I've dreamt of the 3rd one (seriously). If they make this an MMO, I will kill somebody. There is no need for ANOTHER MMO, especially since WoW is clearly the most popular and everyone can just play that if they feel like playing an MMO. As battlemage03 said, the great thing about Diablo in the first place was that is was a sick single-player, but its multi-player was epic, but it wasn't an MMO, which ruled. I guess a Diablo MMO wouldn't be the worst thing, except it will potentially kill the franchise. I mean IF Warcraft 4 comes out, and its back to RTS, how many WoW players won't buy it BECAUSE its not an MMO? I can only hope Blizzard does the right thing...

To behonest after the next expansion in WoW. What is there left to fight in WC4?

With the Burning Legion done for, and the scourge wtfpwned it leaves Horde Vs Alliance again, and I had enough of that with WC2.


I don't think a D3 MMO would be all that awesome to be honest. Stick to the mechanics that made D2 work, and make it open world. As in you can ride a horse from City A to City B instead of the Caravan/Waypoints.

Like a 3D version of D2, with the ability to travel across the world by walking far enough. Let me wander around and do my own thing.

I don't see much beyond that you could do without people crying "OBLIVION REMAKE!" or "FABLE REMAKE!" if it allowed you to kill city NPC's. So I think that's out of the question.

But then again, there's not much you can improve on from D2 if you think about it anyways.


P.S. What's the story going to be? I smasheded all them pretty soul stones, effectively killing Diablo, Mephisto and Baal.
P.P.S Can I be an arch angel like Tyrael now? I want those fucking awesome wings.

It has been announced that Blizzard have officially purchased the domain name DIABLO3.com from the previous owners. This was the great news today (1st of may.)

Could mean they are getting ready for a future release... could mean they are protecting their intellectual property.

diablo3.com now transfers to diablofans.com until a few months down the track when it will divert to blizzard.com

How do you people know that the old team will work on this?
This game will never be like the other diablo games cause the people who made it has moved on to another company. Therefore it's just like another RPG, MMO, RTS... for me.
Grrrrrr

Yeah man, Hellgate London's where it's at icon_razz.gif

I predict Diablo 3 will be Diablo 2 with better graphics.

Well, it wasn't "OMFG WTF YAAAAHz0rz WOOOAAAT!!!*&%$" news, however it's better than all of the rumours. I mean, seriously:

- Blizzard job postings for the 'Diablo' team.
- Tthe "Team 3" working on unannounced project.
- Knaak not writing for a dead series.
- Diablo 3 was already in development years ago.
- The Diablo release anniversaries.
- Blizzard buying all the Diablo3 domains.

Come on, two months before WWI?! This has got to be it!!!
