I know some of you may be harsh here but its all good. I got thinking last night, imagining what the game play would be like for future Diablo games even though D3 has not been released yet. What do you guys think the franchise will look like in the future, if any, and what kind of game play would you all like to see??
I do wonder how far they can push the game while keeping it isometric, and true to the first 2 games. In the future I see the game going fully 3D and taking some giant leaps in directions pretty far removed from what we've seen before in Diablo. Whether it'll be for the best or not I don't know, but unless they throw in some huge changes, I can't even see them making a D4. I find it hard to believe they'd make a diablo MMORPG, but nothing Bliz do could surprise me.
lol ya i would want a bunch of expansions for diablo 3 cause i think the graphics and gameplay for diablo 3 make it most satisfying, to my opinion i think if they got any better graphics and made it look like real life i would be pissed i like how they make animation looks

If they ever get rid of the isometric view, I bet the game will be similar to Bethesda Software's Fallout3 and Oblivion4.
I don't think an MMO will be a direct continuation of the francise, but the way Diablo lore is set up, its very possible to take the basics and make one. You have three factions, humans being able to chose, a huge world despite Heaven and Hell not being visited yet, its all there. Even more so if they get rid of the Iso view, as mentioned earlier.
I personally wouldn't like to see something like this though, at least until they show with their unannounced MMO that they can create something within the same genre that feels completely different.

Of all things important in Online Gaming, there is one thing no game developer can "fix" - it's community.
I wouldn't put it past Blizzard to at least toy with the idea of a Diablo based MMO but I doubt that it would happen. The Diablo series is too strongly tied to lore to create a bastardized storyline for an MMO. I can see them keeping the Diablo Franchise as an RPG, Starcraft as and RTS, and Warcraft as an MMO (for now) but after they release the new MMO I can see Warcraft returning to RTS and both Crafts moving into RPG. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a Warcraft RPG be used as Blizzard's return to console gaming.
They have previously announced that Diablo III will not be the last game in the franchise but it will be the LAST GAME IN THE CURRENT STORYLINE. A new storyline in the realm of Diablo will allow a great deal of gameplay change. I would not be surprised to see a Fallout3/Oblivion/Fable2 style game produced in 1st person. So in short I doubt we will ever see a Diablo IV but we will see another title in the franchise.
How about this.... Diablo 4 will be set 2000 years later and fought in space. You're gonna have to kill some space imps and multiple lunar shamans Watch out for the protoss or the zergs now, they might come and get ya !
