    Diablo III 2011?

    According to Gaming-Steve (http://www.gamingsteve.com/archives/2008/06/diablo-iii-to-be-announced-this-week.php) we shouldn't expect Diablo III until sometime 2011. This guy has been pretty credible when it comes to Blizzard in the past so I wouldn't be surprised if he's right.

    Eleven years, that's a damn long time =/ I bet they've been working on it for most of it too. Isn't that as long as Duke Nuke 'em?

    Eh I don't know. The quality that is shown in the gameplay footage makes it look like a late 2009 - mid 2010 release.

    3 years sound a little much. I think 2ish.

    However long it takes.....it will just enhance the anticipation that much more! I am so psyched about this right now...it's going to be a blast watching for Blizz to release bits of info...watch what people are discussing...we have waited this long...a little longer won't kill me!

    I think it will be out for summer 2010. Why ? Because Diablo 2 was released in summer 2000 so it would make exactly 10 years.

    2011? If so - why the heck does it take that many skilled game makers that long to make a game? That just seems like way to long to me.

    Three years would be ridiculous. There would be no possible rational reason to even show the game 3 years in advance. None.

    If starcraft comes out in 18 more months, I will agree with him.

    i wouldnt put too much stock into what gaming steve says in one of his podcasts he stated that blizz were working on d3 and then a month or so later he said that his sources had a meeting about a new game and they had decided to make d3
    also if he knew that d3 im sure he would of posted on his blog sooner instead of jumping on the bandwagon and posting what every one else was saying
    i would probably say late 2009 or 2010 if there are any problems

    Re: Diablo III 2011?

    After reading his article, it does make a lot of sense.

    I can't remember them ever having more than one game out in it's youth at a time. I also can't recall them releasing a game before a full new game and 1 expansion pack has been released. So, his reasoning is logical. I would expect Lich king this holiday. Then SC2 maybe mid 2009. Expansion pack sometime in 2010.

    That pretty much tells you when Diablo has to come out. Doesn't seem likely before holidays 2010. Likely summer 2011.

    It will be interesting if the Activision side of the house pushes for faster release; so far it hasn't been an issue for SC2 (for as much as we know). The gameplay trailer looks fairly well advanced (was there one for SC last year?), so I will guess Xmas 2009...OK, so I'm an optimistic dreamer :D

    Yeah - because 1 person is equal to dozens of professional developers.

    The difference is they didn't have the ungodly amounts of cash WoW has given them before. They now have enough revenue to hire enough staff to easily make all three games at once
