Yahoo Games recently posted a newsbit on Activision-Blizzard's plans for the coming years, with an interesting tidbit built in:
Quote from Yahoo »
Blizzard is also working on Diablo III, the third game in their hit role-playing series. It's currently planned for release in 2011.
With no official word directly from Blizzard, this may be more speculation than fact, but it's definitely more than any information we currently have on a release date. You know: nothing
Kudos to ForeverBARB for posting about this here, and I would like to remind everyone that if you find any Diablo or Blizzard-related news, we encourage you to report it to the news staff (the folks in green) so that it can be put on DiabloFans as soon as possible. Thanks!
I always thought it would be 2011. Unless bliz had some other games waiting in the pipeline then why delay until 2012? I've no doubt that they could finish it by the end of 2011 if HQ told them too :biggrin:
You guys are so silly, everyone knows they are going to release it on December 21st 2012... Even the Mayans predicted this! When D3 is released everyone will become so addicted and stop doing any work and eventually the world will decay from 7 billion addicted D3 players.
What a silly and useless post. Gamespot had release dates posted for 2008, 2009, 2010, doesn't mean they're real. Just because there's "nothing else to go by" doesn't mean that yahoo is right. If I were to suddenly spew out that d3 isn't coming until 2013, I would have no less credibility than yahoo saying it's 2011. I'm not saying it won't be 2011, but this wasn't even close to newsworthy.
"Omgosh, someone on the internet thinks it will be 2011? Great, lets make a news article about it and give everyone the wrong idea and let them think there's any sort of concrete release date." People come here to find out new things about Diablo 3, not speculations. When people read this, they're going to mistake this for fact since it was big and important enough to make it onto what was ONCE a reliable and awesome information site about Diablo 3.
Awww....that's sooo sad. Tell me- which part of the word 'speculation' didn't you understand in the OP?
And yes, in case you were lost on an island somewhere in the pacific, we got like...no news at all for quite some time.
Now you are back to civilization, why don't you go and spew your rage at blizz...and save us from your whining.
