    Good news for Blizzcon

    i was doing my rounds at the diablo fan sites and came across an update from diablofans about an interview with jay. i haven't seen it posted here yet so i figured i'd pass along the good news.

    (A recent post on G4TV quoted Jay Wilson said:

    Official Blizzard Quote:
    [Blizzard Source]
    I can say that this Blizzcon, in terms of Diablo news, will be the biggest one that we've ever had.)

    lets hope it's a release date!

    Yeah, I think the so called Diablo draught is pretty much over now. The more info they release the less secretive they'll be from that point on, so things are looking good for now.

    As per Blizzard tradition, though, you won't get a release date, not until all the other features have been revealed and all that's left is polishing and fine-tuning.

    very true about how they do release dates. i tend to be pretty optimistic. when i saw them mention that they were working on polishing the first act to get the story telling and such down i was excited.

    they have mentioned several times that they don't work on a single act till it's done but work on all acts simultaneously. just makes me hope this means most acts are nearing completion and ready for polishing once they have act 1 figured out.

    if i recall they did give a release date for SC2 in terms of a year/quarter and then it ended up being pushed back another year do to battle.net. been a while since then but i think that's true.

    What can be bigger than a release date ? Hmmm, special Diablo project in the works ? :)

    To be honest, even though I really can't wait for the game, I'd rather they didn't give us a release date until they're sure they can meet it. "When it's done" is exactly when it needs to be released.

    I would guess 5th class, a few new mechanics, some new gameplay, a new demo, and maybe some items.

    I'd throw in more of A2 and possibly a bit of A3.

    there is a lot that would be bigger than a release date. the 5th character for one. showing "hell" would be another. lots of characters and story left unknown right now. all of this and more is better than a release date because whatever date they gave you would not matter anyway. it would not hold up and once that date passed everyone would be out raged and it is just not worth it

    It will be the 5th character. Still 1.5-2 years from release.

    5th character, a bit about the third act and one or two new features (hirelings, new skill system).

    of course it will be the biggest ever.....since SC2 is out of the way, WoW new expansion is in testing phase already, the new secret project can't be reviewed in couple of years.....the only thing left is Diablo. Still.....good news for us though
