Hi folks,

Does anybody know anything new about the rumors concerning Diablo 3?

Thanks,

Won't happen, sorry.

You might want to check Titan Quest (we have a topic on this board about it).
Fire Boar
Won't happen? Wasn't it officially announced at E3? I've got plenty of friends who seem to think so, and we're all going to buy it... if it comes out. Are you sure it's a complete myth? If so then ah well... there's always Neverwinter Nights 2. I know that's coming out.
Rsam
I'll get it whenever it comes out. It's not coming out any time soon however. Blizzard will not abandon one of its franchises. It's time for Blizzard to start developing a Starcraft or Diablo title.
Hojo
im not up to date probably, but last time i checked blizzard didnt say theyre working on it, someone that knows some of the developers said this though (was sometime in febuary 2006 i think) :

Quote:
I don't want to get any of my friends at Blizzard in trouble, so from instead of mentioning "Diablo III" let's call this theoretical game "Beelzebub 3" and instead of "Blizzard" let's call them "Snowstorm".
[...]
The core gameplay Beelzebub 3 will play pretty much like Beelzebub 1 and 2, but the game world will be much larger and provide a much deeper experience -- many more items, more levels when you go through the game for first time, more skills, more of everything. In addition, the multiplayer aspect will be greatly enhanced from the past installments and don't be surprised to see more than a couple of WoW-based concepts to leak over into the Beelzebub 3 universe ... such as two opposing factions (Alliance and Horde = Heaven and Hell), enhanced guild functionality, and maybe even mounts?!


got this from a news report on indiablo.de
djsamsung
yeah, Blizzard would never abandon their franchises. Diablo 3 will come out, but not soon...

As long as people Still play Diablo 2 LoD they won't make it. Did you know that people still play the original Diablo online... but back to the point at hand untill there is a need for a new Diablo will they make it - Diablo 2 is still very popular.
Helios
Well, I HOPE it'll come out. Diablo II is a great game! Very Happy

Rumors abound:

http://www.gamingsteve.com/archives/2006/02/rumor_diablo_ii.php

http://arstechnica.com/journals/thumbs.ars/2006/2/2/2746

http://www.joystiq.com/2005/02/07/rumor-blizzard-begins-work-on-diablo-iii/

and on and on and on.

There will be a diablo III, and I think it will be out in 2007.

I heard of this Diablo 3 rumors quite sometime ago. I am abit bored of Diablo 2 LoD. If it gonna come out, I am sure to get one.

I have to disagree with that statement. Take the SOCOM series for instance, yeah people still played SOCOM 2 frequently yet they came out with SOCOM 3. Of course there are the people that still play SOCOM 2 for a variety of reasons, but Zipper still released a new version.

I see this Blizzard hiatus as time being spent making the game. By not making a 3rd edition to this amazing series(my dad's actually playing LOD on the computer next to me as i type), they are both losing money as a company and getting some of us quite anxious.
Rsam
Thought I'd just like to conttribute this site http://www.diablo3.com/. They list all the possible evidence for Diablo 3 being made.
TonkPilz
it may be a bit hard to make a Diablo 3 and still have that diablo feel but i guess il get it sens its diablo. but i sure as hell dont go by rumors if i did id be playing starcraft 2 and starcraft ghost on my pc to day....

im w8ing for a world of starcraft tho if blizz just got of ther asses and made the games i whant'em to make
7Pound7
So probably it will take another 3 years to come out. But sure it will come, that is pretty clear based on recent actions by blizzard: hire new team members, buying internet domains etc.
Exciting stuff, now lets hope they leave WoW for what it is and don't implement anything that is in there to D3. Keep the style of D2 and improve the game tremendously.

7Pound7
Notika
I think that Diablo 3 will come out, but not soon.

Maybe late in 2008... Idea

But I have been wondering how the story should start and end in that game... Confused

Maybe they'll just change the story and go all the way back to where Diablo started, and then to where Diablo 2 LoD Ended, or maybe change some things in the story to make it better...
Seithex
I hope they have Diablo 3. Diablo 2 was one of the best games. Well except for the lagging and crashing. It was fun to hack items and watch people die instantly to your characters wrath. Very Happy
QrafTee
I'm pretty sure if there is a Diablo III, there will be expanded classes, items, levels, bosses, etc. etc... Perhaps a Cow Level and the return of Wirt's Leg. This is my take on knowing when a Blizzard game is going to come out, after they are on Blizzard's Current Project/Future Project page for the first time, give them 6 months to 2 years before expecting the game to be released.

I just have to say that Blizzard as much as we love take forever to get there games out. In last 8 years or so they have only shipped WCIII and WoW. Sure the games are great it just takes so long for them to come out. Blizzard is dead set on WoW, I don't see them really making any other game just becuase they are making so much money off of WoW. And if they are going to 'ship' any other game we should know about years ahead of time.
undoweb
I didn`t find anithing about Diablo 3 and I heard that it will not gana happen!
Jeff_vella_leone
if diablo 3 comes out il be the first to get it Razz
so it surly not gonna happen this year
hope its in 2007
dac_nip
wow this is great news. never heard of this rumor before! I'll wait for this game Very Happy
tbonepat11
I vaguely remember rumors about D3 awhile back...might have just been hype from E3 or Blizzcon. I am sure they will make another one....its one of their cash cows!
OneBadOmen
I heard that they might be making Diablo 3 like World of Warcraft so it would be World of Diablo or something. But Blizzard really needs to start concentrating on the Diablo and Starcraft franchizes more because they are really popular too. I'm really hoping for Starcraft 2 though.
Josso
Erm I heard they were putting together people to "talk about the prospects" of Diablo 3 but I never saw any official links.
fatepower
I think diablo is out of date nad they won't rel an new game of diablo, but diablo 2 is kinda nice i like that game Very Happy but now im playing wow Very Happy
apadox
i think that they should just make a mod for better graphics. and then make a mod for more missions and more worlds.

for starcraft too becouse they can just make it worse than now.
Josso
Yeah, I got side-tracked last time I posted. Heres more detailed rantings.

Diablo 3 would probably keep me occupied for a long time. I was still playing Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction at the start of this year, I mean it's 6 years and I got it when it came out. Shows how much I like it, obviously I havn't played it all the time since it came out but I keep popping back. I wouldn't be surprised if I got it out and had a crack at the game tommorow, I just love it Very Happy.
I heard for years about D3 and the prospects etc, rumours started as early as 2003. But then again they always do. I did hear in 2005 that on the official Blizzard site people had been put together to talk about the possible 3rd game, I did check and I do beleive it was true although I can't remember the exact details of it (can someone verify?).
If it did come out they'd have to put a LOT OF WORK into it to make it as good as the original. I know a lot of people that didn't get into it but in my mind it'll go down in RPG history and will always be one of my favourite games of all time. There was nothing like the network back in those days (2001-03) as well... it was a great variety of people Laughing. Diablo 3 would need to be done so very well and there's so much potential to mess it up completly. If you ask me they need near enough the same coding team that made D2 and the expansion.

Anyway... my views and opinions on the subject.


EDIT:

There's some good articles and links if you Google it. Found a convincing one.

Quote:
Blizzard didn’t make any allusions about a possible Diablo 3, but this didn’t stop rumors from circulating.

After Bill Roper’s resignation, it looked like there wouldn’t be any sequel to Diablo, even though Blizzard North had started to look for experienced designers.

But after Ropers’s announcement that his new studio will launch Hellgate: London, an employee of the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra posted on DiabloII.net information according to which the orchestra is currently working at the soundtrack for Diablo 3.

Actually, the information was received as an e-mail whose content was this:
“I am musician in Czech Republic. I play not with one orchestra but with many depending on work. I have recently been to Bratislava in Slovak Republic for recording sessions with local Radio Symphony Orchestra, where we just recorded music for Diablo 3.”

The information might contain some truth, because the same orchestra recorded the music for the add-on of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

Obviously Blizzard didn’t make any comments.

thanks for the info Josso
cant wait to c diablo 3 hope its somewhat like E.S. Oblivion Smile
moonshadowinn
I know Ive heard rumours about D3, but thats been a while and I cannot remember what they were. If it does come out, I'm sure they would have as strong a following for it as WoW, expecially if the gameplay is as good as D2 is now. I am actually going to go play it in a few Smile
Demiah
Diablo III is supposed to come at middle 2007
--That is actually the date at wich Blizzard is aiming at.
Razz Sorry to dissapoint, but its not gonna be something like Oblivion
--Luckly i got 2 friends working at Blizzard.. so ill probably be the 1st to get it Very Happy Very Happy
Cant wait, played D2 right since it came out in Europe, then came the LoD... that was like.. a light from heaven into my dark world

BTW.. anyone in need for mods for D2LoD??

Diablo 3? No way...

It will probably be called World of Diablo.
ne2 Luka
That's a good one. No good thing lasts long; at least in Blizzard.
carlokes
If Blizzard says that a certain game is scheduled to be released on a certain date then it is very easy to calculate the correct date of release, you just have to add 2 or 3 more years and then you'll have the correct date. It has been always like this and it will continue to be...thats just how blizzard work. But don't worry bbecause it will be something awesome for sure, because everything they do, they do it to be spectacular !!

That's quite interesting, do we have any webpage to verify?

Indeed we had friends working in the game industry, I played Diablo II nearly a month before it officialy came out.
LadyAngel
I am a constant D2LOD player. Have played since beginning and will play to the end. They will eventually make a D3 when and what it will be like who knows. What I think there going to make it like is this.
Its going to sorta start where d2lod left off... The world stone has been destroyed leaving the gate between heaven, earth and hell open. So now you will be not only fighting pn earth to keep the monsters at bay but to keep them from heaven and to banish them all back to hell and then destroy them for good. Remember how you had to bust Mephs soulstone on the forge? Why didnt you have to do something simlar with Diablo himself or Baal? Because it leaves something open to the imagination and if the made it to where you completly killed them off they wouldnt really have anything to go on now would they? So my idea is this .. You killed Diablo in the orignal Diablo game.. He took over your body and walked all over to find his 2 brothers upon finding them he set them free and everything. So now since you have supposedly banished/destroyed Meph completely this time he has to go by someother means to get him back, and it never really says that Baal was destroyed fully either. OH and once there dead there supposed to back to hell correct? Well.. if the gate between heaven, earth and hell has been destroyed by Tyreal because of Baals corruption to the World Stone.. Doesnt that mean they will be able to come back with no problem?
Oh yeah and me and my guild are thinking that it will prolly have a more new feel to it ... like a more up to date feel.. minus the guns and stuff..

I haven't heard any rumors of a Diablo III being developed, but I also don't tend to follow gaming news all that much. Now here's a question I'd like to pose: Wasn't Blizzard going to develop Starcraft II several years ago? I remember hearing news about it from a Blizzard spokesman, but nothing ever came of it. Instead, games like Starcraft: Ghost and WoW have been made, leaving the Starcraft franchise all but abandoned.

Don't say I'm contradicting myself, either. Starcraft: Ghost was technically part of the Starcraft franchise, but it steered off in a completely different direction. Starcraft and Brood War are both RTS games, whereas Ghost is a FPS game. If memory serves me correctly, I don't think Ghost was even released for the PC, but instead for a few consoles. Poor judgement on the part of Blizzard for that one.

Anyway, I still play D2:LOD every now and then, but I don't play it religiously. I actually haven't touched it in several months, and all of my characters have likely expired. I may start playing again sometime with a new set of characters, because the ones I had were fairly low-power in Hell difficulty.
7Pound7
Hmm hmmm, hmmmmmmm,

D2LOD leaves enough open for a sequel. A battle between heaven and hell, with earthlings?

World of Diablo, sounds good too. You can choose to play a race, with hero's: earthlings, hell-folks or heavenly creatures.

To make something with the diablo feel in 3D will be very very difficult.
I mean, World of Warcraft is crap if you like the Warcraft series with their touch of play.

They will also look at the market more then with the development of D2 I think.

Blizzard prolly will also look at what flagship studios produces: hellgate:london.

The 3D shooter concept based upon starcraft died, so prolly they wont make that mistake again?

A new Diablo game would be really nice (if it reached the same level as the others) however with Bill Roper and others from the DII team tied up with Hellgate london(wich seems to become a great game!) blizzard would have to assemble a new team for D3 and most probably loose the feeling that made D1&2 so great. in other words i think(or hope) that blizzard waits to produce a game until they think that they can make a good one. so i wouldn't get my hopes up atleast until Hellgate is finished. and as for starcraft i just hope they dont ruin that like westwood ruined the command&conquer series.

ahh really bad then i really like oblivion
well the only reason i dont play diablo 2 is for its grafics when i first played it bah the grafics didnt attract me in the game so ii stoped at the begining
hope this one is better in grafics
MistDragon
I've been hoping and waiting for a Diablo III since I beat Diablo II!

I want to know what happens after what happens at the end of Diablo II LoD (I won't say it). ARGH! Suspense is killing me!
Wish4Me
A high def. Mod for starcraft would be all that is needed for the game. The game looks spectacular for the definition. The only thing that could make it better is high def version of it. They have the original High definition models of the SC univers so to just recode the game and clear things up with a better more up to date engine and new mapping capabilities is all that true starcraft gamers need.
