Diablo III won't see a release until StarCraft II is done. SC2 is set to release next year, so yeah, no Diablo III till 2010.

I have no idea if you guys are even remotely close to knowing this, but when -- broad, ballpark estimate -- can we expect to see Diablo III on retail shelves?

Pardo: When itís ready.

Wired: Is that like 2 years from now? A decade from now?

Pardo: I donít ... I donít know how far out it is, but itís still fairly early in development. I think when people see it, it feels so polished and so finished, but the reality is we have a very small portion of the game done right now.

Lame!

I'm a typical gamer who over reacts over everything. I wont buy this game now. Or any other Blizzard game. ::(:

Actually it's not too long to wait. Especially as it seems to have quite the story.

Blizzard loves to take their own sweet time to finish their games. Heh. That's fine, I'm pretty behind in games I have so I need to finish them all.

no one thought it will come out soon :p
Its Blizzard, their games take time but come out perfect.

If they dont like their game 6 months before release they will thrash it all and start over again. They want perfection

I have yet to play a blizzard game that sucks

there should be a law against announcing or showing off a game that is more then 2 months from release..

Change that to a year and I agree with you.

Wouldnt work though, with the Valves of the business.. put out a faux date and then delay for a year or 2 hehe.
I belive Ive seen this thrown around at forums a couple of time: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Valve_Time

I just don't care about how long do I need to wait, because I got a sh!t load of games to play, besides, Titan Quest ,Sacred2 and NWN2 (multiplayer) will keep me busy for a long time, not to mention the l33t Clear Sky. (nana2)(nana2)(nana2)

Now that we got WoW expansion/SC2/D3 coming, do you think Blizzard will ever announce a new franchise? Or will they forever keep to their 3 worlds?

Personally, I think Blizzard will branch out into the console world. If they succeed, it will be extremely lucrative for them. Only problem would be getting a game out before a new generation of consoles.
