Again, why is this logo significant? Doesn't Blizzard usually promote all three franchises?

Not this shit again. Just because none of you peasants ever played high-level sorceress doesn't mean Diablo should be profaned for consoles.

I am saying it makes sense from a technical and business point of view. I am building a PC for Crysis and Starcraft 2, so I could care less about a console port.

Who cares about high level? It would work fine and I could see it happen but I will buy it for my Mac anyway.

The positioning of diablo is questionable given that WoW is their main generator. However, a friend just pointed out there might be a diablo 2 tournament there?

Edit: God, I hope Diablo 3 is on the way. What's Blizzard's history of announcing games? Would they do something at this upcoming invitational?

What I'm saying is that the control scheme must absolutely be compromised to work on consoles. And the game complexity with it. It just irks me when people say that Diablo can be done "perfectly" on consoles, simply because their barbarian playing style with which they finished the campaign on normal or nightmare would work with a controller.

</elitist rant>

They announced Starcraft 2 at last year's invitational in Korea.

Maybe a Starcraft 2 release date?

http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/06/rumor-starcraft.html

Although, starcraft2.com not pointing to the splash page kind of says it's not.

Hmmm make sense. Announce both Starcraft II and WOLK release dates at WWI, and then show a trailer for Diablo 3 to let the fans know that more is coming in years beyond. That's how I would do it if I was the PR manager of Blizzard.

I remember that weekend when StarCraft II was announced. It was fun browsing GAF at late night on weekend.


Hopefully it won't disappoint this time too.

Blizzard always promotes all 3 franchises..

It could be Diablo but that WWI picture doesnt justify it is.. Wow you people are crazy.. I swear.

See Diablo 3 become Blizzards first (simultaneous) multiplatform release.
I thought most of their stuff was already multiplatform at launch? They're one of the few developers who *don't* send my Mac-using friends into tears of hatred and loathing.

I believe. The 3m, the fact that he is the most prolific character in the image all but confirms it. If this is suppose to be all WOTKL or Starcraft 2, Arthas and Kerrigan should be more of the focus. It is clear, Diablo 3 is coming.

This is interesting... as I posted earlier
Page 31 has a missing image.
http://www.blizzard.com/us/inblizz/fanart/ScreenShot.html

However when I go back in the archives
http://web.archive.org/web/20041207040048/http://www.blizzard.com/inblizz/fanart/page10.shtml
This page works just fine at Dec 12th 2004.

However the 'Purple Diablo' image appears sometime between the 13th and the 29th.
http://web.archive.org/web/20041229061027/http://www.blizzard.com/inblizz/fanart/page10.shtml

Now all the images on the old 2004 retrieval are gone...



For kicks:

Isn't there any fansite that keeps an alternate fanart depositore?
 

Yoshichan

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

You didn't draw the ring. The ring is the most important part.

Blizzcon 2007 I was looking for.

See how diablo is far in the back with the Protoss from Starcraft is right up front.
With Warcraft so small... just being there.

EDIT: Added 2008

EDIT:


Resized.

On the WWI site I remember at one point there was some stuff about computers set-up with D2, which seems to have been removed now, though the D2 logo is still on the site banner to the side.

All I'm trying to say is that the Diablo pic in the logo may not actually refer to D3, may just be because D2 is there.

Although I hope it is announced, because with luck it may be playable at the event.

It all makes sense now. The teaser is a metaphor.

"hell frozen over, here's diablo 3!"
Hell was frozen over for a long time. Now the ice is melting and Diablo returns. :D

The thing with that artwork is... Diablo is clearly the dominant bit, front and center, with that oddly 3-shaped fire in his hand. That's a bit more substantial than featuring him or his face in some random background portion. Arthas and Corrigan are relegated to smaller avatars set off to the side. And these are confirmed games/expansions that will sell immensely well. So they're going to shovel them to the side just to remind you that, HEY, D2 will be at this event as well!

:lol

Of course, this could just be a monstrously huge cocktease.

I still think the guy with the goatse edit is right. Blizzard is going to have the ice slowly melt and then goatse all of korea.

They recently reset the ladder and patched Diablo 2 about a week or so ago and I've been playing every waking moment.

The game is still amazing after all these years. I'm not sure what I would want in a Diablo 3 to be honest. The game has aged beautifully, and plays fantastic on my iMac.

Pulling this out.

I got bored today between WoW and being bored. :lol

Anyways I got this so far after checking all the job postings listed under (Top Secret).
http://www.blizzard.com/us/jobopp/ -- Main Page
http://www.blizzard.com/us/jobopp/programmer-database-mmo.html -- Obvious as you need a DB to handle the game.
http://www.blizzard.com/us/jobopp/programmer-game-physics.html -- Next Gen MMO Physics (Ooh!?)
http://www.blizzard.com/us/jobopp/senior-3d-environment-artist2.html -- Envio Artist (Job Posting only talks about Diablo I & II)
http://www.blizzard.com/us/jobopp/art-technical-artist.html -- Again looking for someone to handle art assets made and ported into live.
There's more postings there but these got the point across.

Overall, I get this egging feeling that since its being done by the Diablo I & II teams and calling for Next Gen MMO programmers I get:
A) Its an MMO
B) Done by the Diablo Peeps
C) Another Game to Print Money for Blizzard!

Diablo MMO would pretty much destroy the human population in some parts of the world.
Just speculation.
If Diablo 3 is an MMO...

The end of the world is neigh!
