Heh...they're probably experiencing the equivalent of a distributed denial of service attack from all the page requests.

Blizzard got slashdotted!!

Great, a console only game. I'm sure everyone who likes blizzard games really gives a damn. I sure don't.

I give Penny Arcade 3 hours to do a comic lamenting the fact that there is no SC2

Only for consoles.

Nihilistic Software are the co-developers. They are the guys who did the underappreciated Vampire: The Masquerade.

Hopefully it'll be better than C&C Renegade turned out.

They expect to ship in late 2003. In other words sometime in 2004.

I don't mind it's a console-only game in the least. They just released Warcraft III, and Diablo II is still quite new. Did you really expect another RTS for the PC soon?

I'm sure Starcraft2 is coming, but probably not for somewhere around two years (though I'm sure we'll hear about it sooner than that...).

The way I see it, this is just Blizzard's attempt to break into the more lucrative console market. In a way, I do hope they fail and go all-PC

ditto on what Chalnoth said about SC2, i wasn't expecting it this soon after WC3, even in an announcement only form.

Diablo 2 is new, its 2 years old and the gameplay is stale as week old bread left outside in the sun. besides which, there have been no patches for a very, very long time, and many issues have been left unresolved.

I was thinking more in terms of the expansion pack, Stealthhawk. I thought that was released only about a year ago?

I guess I'm not really certain...but I do feel that the expansion pack really improved the gameplay by a huge amount.

Regardless, I would expect a new Starcraft game for the PC before I would expect another Diablo game...but now is not the time.
