In our Diablo 3 forum,via their twitter feeds, that they will be showing Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft at this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, August 18-21, 2011.
There’s been no such tweet from @Diablo though, or any mention of Diablo showing at the show. This might be a hint at the timing of things; we know the beta won’t start until sometime after Blizzard debuts the D3 B.net stuff at their upcoming media event in late July, but most of us expect the Diablo 3 Beta to be at least getting started by the 18th, when Gamescom begins. In that case, why wouldn’t they want to show off the new (beta) build at the show?
On the other hand, we might be reading too much into this. @Diablo has been inactive for more than a week (since June 16th) so maybe Bashiok and whoever else updates it just haven’t gotten around to posting that yet. It’s not as if this would be the first time the Diablo aspects of Blizzard were the least promoted.
