Bashiok issued a series of typically-cryptic/confusing tweets today, but the gist seems to be that Blizzard will be posting some sort of commemoration for Diablo’s 15th anniversary later this week, once they’re back from holiday.
there was no super news for today? –ManuCampora
It’ll be ready early this week. 🙂 –Bashiok
awww everyone on forums are praying for a release date –PsassLuke
What? No. It’s just a 15 year celebration. –Bashiok
No, but its fun to dream lol. Thank you very much for the answer –PsassLuke
Well that’s silly. You think I’d honestly even mention a release date announcement before it happens? –Bashiok
Gratz on the 15 years how many years have you been with Blizz and whats your Best moment –Drutaks
8 years and change. Favorite moment was being in Paris for the announcement of #D3. The emotions washed over me. Unforgettable. –Bashiok
He’s not saying that we’ll get a release date this week, though that his first tweet seemed to hint in that direction. The confusion is understandable; after all, we’ve seen Blizzard set release dates for their release dates in the past. (And then generally miss those, too.)
Update: Comment of the year from SteveG:
I hope it’s artwork we’ve seen before. That would be awesome.
