Default Diablo III?

Quote:
Talking to Gamasutra, Frank Pearce, founding member and senior vice president of product development for Blizzard revealed that the company has a third team hard at work on a new title, separate from World of Warcraft and StarCraft II.

The comment came amid discussion of the company's current workforce. "Our global headcount is 2,700," said Pearce, "And most of that is customer service for World of Warcraft! In terms of development staff it’s probably around 350. World of Warcraft is about 135 people, 40 for Starcraft II, 40 for team 3, our cinematics team is about 85 guys. Then there’s sound and Q/A and that sort of thing."

When pressed for details regarding the new project, Pearce was cagey. "Team 3 is working on something really awesome. I can’t give you any hints, but it’s totally awesome."

All attempts to extract additional information were understandably met with looks of shock and horror from Blizzard's director of global public relations, who also attended the meeting.

Gamasutra was able to confirm that, in spite of Rob Pardo's comments at Hollywood and Games that they weren't giving up on StarCraft Ghost, this Blizzard project remains something different. With Blizzcon coming up in mere weeks, it's possible that additional information could be revealed at that time.

Could it be?

Blizzard has not often if ever released 2 games in the same year and SC2 is commng out next year. Then that puts this one 2 to 3 years out.

I'm not sure that I would want to play Diablo III from a 3d person view anymore.

After being spoilt on the first person POV and the immersiveness of Oblivion, I don't think I can go back to anything else again.

You're almost right. I spent about half my undergraduate time playing Diablo2:LOD.

They should stay with 3rd person IMO. First person will destory it and we don't need "other" Hellgate: London.

I hope they keep it dark and as addicting as Diablo 2. Man, I should play Diablo 2 again.

If it's another point'n clic game (I hope so), it should be played from isometric perspective as previous Diablo games did, but with a full 3D environment and characters (ala Titan Quest).
