    NoMoreGameBlogs (a self-refuting URL if I’ve ever seen one) has posted the transcript of an interview they conducted with a Bliz rep named “Ryan” at the PAX show last week. He’s presumably Ryan Arbogast, an Associate PR Manager (last quoted no-commenting a release date rumor about D3) though that’s not specified in the interview.  At any rate, he answers a fair number of questions, but all in full-on PR mode, where nothing can be confirmed or denied, aside from the basic awesomeness of any and all Blizzard products.  The vagueness of this one actually got an eloel from me.

    NMGB: Have you guys announced a release date yet?
    R: It’ll be ready when it’s ready.

    NMGB: So not even 2010, not a year or anything specific?
    R: No.

    NMGB: Is it definitely coming out after Starcraft? Is Starcraft gonna come out first?
    R: You know, we’re working on the game, and it’s two totally different teams working on each game. We’re real happy with the progress of Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 and they’ll be ready when they’re ready.
