Diablo 3 this year?

"The development team is working hard to try and launch Diablo III this year," said Morhaime.

"We will not compromise the quality of the game in order to hit a window," he concluded.
Don't hold your breath, I suppose, but keep your fingers crossed. What a year this could turn out to be.

Awesome. November is about right for me, I can play some over Christmas. Will have to get some groups going! I have high hopes for some fun dungeon crawling.

Can we change the title though? Keep it from Silent, since I think he has some addiction issues to work through.

Diablo 3 BETA this year.

Not quite as exciting. I'm not expecting the full game this year.

So, I loved the crap out of Diablo but never played more than about an hour of Diablo 2, so I'm not sure how I feel about Diablo 3. I really enjoyed Torchlight, though, so I guess that's a good sign.

I completely missed that, although my Nov est was judging from adding several months onto what is usually Blizztime.

Trying to remember when the SC2 beta to release time was... I know I could look it up in the SC2 thread but I'm feeling lazy.

Be nice if they make it in time for the Christmas period though.

Diablo 3 This Year?

I don't really care. I'm just being a pedantic jerk and found it funny that you used the exact same thread title.

It never occurred to me that this thread would have been made two months ago, or I would have posted there.

Well then, good to see them making more noise along these lines.

Theres no way in hell they're going to have a 4 month beta to gold timeline. Thats way to fast for Blizztime.

I think SC2 was about 6-8 months from Beta start to Gold.

Thinking I'll try to sign up and throw my hat in the bundle.

My hat's in there for months now, doubt that will make any difference.

Ditto! Pleasant surprise. I don't think we'll see the release of the actual game until March or so if they're starting the beta in Sept. That's about en par for a Blizzard timetable.

Just watched an interview over at Gametrailers that's only a couple days old.

The beta is still on track for end of September with a release of 2011 if things go well. I'm getting excited!

Me too! I can't wait. I know, I hide it well, right?

I'm still torn between Wizard and Witch Doctor for my first playthrough.
Wizard because I've always been a Sorc in D2, or Witch Doctor because he's just so damn cool!

Witch Doctor has minions yes? I'm on a black out on this one, but I don't think I can resist a Necro type character trailing along with my horde of minions....

Yeah he has minions. He looks like a mix between D2 Necro and WoW Warlock.
