Diablo III is “Almost Done”

Share

We tweeted this yesterday, but Jay Wilson (Game Director on Diablo III) has said that “We are almost done with Diablo III, and that’s a fitting celebration of the 15th year anniversary for Diablo. So, we are getting it to you as soon as we can.” Considering the early 2012 release date was a delay from the original late 2011, we may see the game very soon indeed.

Don’t worry that it’ll come out half-baked either. This is Blizzard.  They have a built-in on the fly patching system, and always put out a great product. Next to Valve, they are the company in PC gaming that can do no wrong. If it’s close to done, it really is close to done.

Diablo III can’t come quick enough. I’ve been mired in MMOs, FPS and Call of Duty for far too long. I even reinstalled Diablo II this summer and played for a bit.  The game is still that good. Within a week of beta release I had a key and wrote a preview for the site.  This was merely a snack before the feast. It didn’t really help the cravings.  You can only beat the first major quest in Act I so many times.

I’m dying here.

Please Blizzard, get it done, let’s say by March.  Sound good?  Good.

  • I was really excited for this game, but with the cash market place, the always on DRM, and the inability to play without an internet connection I’ve officially given up on Diablo 3.

    Especially when a game like Torchlight 2 is slated to come out around the same time, with LAN support, a 20 dollar price tag, no DRM, & members of the original Diablo team on their development team I’d much rather send my money their way.

    I love you Blizzard, but you’re letting Activision fuck up your games.

      same, il probably just pirate(pirates always find a way) it then if its any good I am going to buy it. But im still reluctant since it has items for real money

      Same here, especially with a game like Diablo where one likes to carry it around on a laptop, in a car, or wherever—like a book!

      Record-breaking profits do not appear to be enough for these petty contemptible people, and I have purchased every Blizzard game the company has produced.

      Thomas McDonald, a columnist for Maximum PC, supports this always on nonsense with the weakest of arguments. Maybe it is time for him to retire or run for senator.

      Of course, id Software praises the move, oh, that company that says the future of gaming is on consoles. No wonder John Romeo is said to have left id Software because of creative differences, him wanting content, John Carmack wanting mindless splash over content.

    Really looking forward to this. I suppose I’d best get the most out of SWTOR for the next couple months. I’m guessing I won’t be giving it a second thought once D3 comes along. It’s already becoming a bit stale for me. But all MMOs do pretty quickly for me these days. The fact that D3 is not a MMO makes it all the more appealing, actually.
