Diablo III is yet another Blizzard game that has suffered massive delays. With Diablo II coming out in the summer of 2000, the wait for Diablo III may not be as long a wait as that for Star Craft 2 but it is still a decade later and now, hope abounds for a third instalment of the Diablo franchise. Diablo III takes place 20 years after Diablo II. The heroes that fought the army of the burning hells either went insane or forgot that it even happened. The heroes that you now play return to Tristram and meet up with everyone?s favourite NPC, Deckard Cain. There are 5 classes to choose from, four of which, the Barbarian, the Witch Doctor, the Wizard and the Monk, have already been revealed. We have been teased by Blizzard with concept art, screenshots, character videos, and even a couple of gameplay demos but there is still no announced release date. Don?t hold your breath, but there is a chance that Diablo III might come out next year.
Imagine how strong would be the 2010 eagerness if Blizzard hadn’t already ruled out a 2010 release? Wait, what am I saying? Such insignificant chronological details can’t stand between us and true gaming anticipation!
