    What I know of DIII

    Spoke to a friend at Blizzard a couple of weeks ago. He takes his confidentiality agreement seriously, but was willing to answer general questions. From these I found out the following...

    There was a company show and tell a couple of weeks ago and it was announced that a new game would be announced at the Paris show, definitely not Starcraft ii or a WOW expansion. It will be from an existing property but will not be an MMO. The next generation MMO they are hiring for is "several years away." I asked him if Blizzard were to do a Diablo III, would they make it first/third person like Hellgate and he said they would stick to what they know is successful.

    Unless it is a Lost Vikings sequel, I am very confident that Diablo III will be announced in Paris.

    If your source is credible that is great news. For those of you who don't know, June 28th 2000 was the release of D2. Couple that with the info above, and it sounds like we have an unofficial announcement.

    Once again, if the source is good, then this also ends the debate over whether or not D3 is MMO. :thumbsup:

    That was the exciting news to me as well. He had all but admitted the existence of DIII in the past but this was the first time I got specific about gameplay. To learn that it would not mess with the formula was music to my ears.

    Maybe because Europe is where half of the money comes from and Paris is where almost all of it goes.

    Re: What I know of DIII

    RPM Racing
    The Lost Vikings
    Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye
    Rock N' Roll Racing
    The Death and Return of Superman
    Justice League Task Force
    Blackthorne


    now i'm not sure if blizzard has rights to any of those other than lost vikings. obviously the superman and justice league games aren't theirs in terms of the rights seeing as they'd all be owned by DC.

    interestingly though they have two things i see
    1. projecy "hydra" which is being called an MMOG
    2. Unknown project - could be project hydra but listed as a "next-gen MMO"


    personally i think a new rock and roll racing would be pretty sweet and i could see a new updated blackthorne could be awesome.

    But aren't Diablo, WarCraft and StarCraft Blizzard's main franchises?

    OMG this is the first actaul forum responce that i haev seen from elly

    now back to my regularly scheduled responce

    Ive been waiting ever so patiently for this to happen, anyidea if there will be a live presentation of this announcement on blizzard.com?

    When it comes to big announcement theres always press conferences or gaming shows. im more than curious about this so i can use my time effectively to make sure i have my computer and properly place pillows so i dont sustain major physical damage when i hit my head off the roof.
