There are no official statements on Diablo III's release date, details, or even it's production. Everything so far is rumors.
The only factual evidence we have of a possible Diablo III is Blizzard's job postings and numerous interviews with Blizzard employees, often resorting to that old saying, "We plan to return to the Diablo franchise sometime in the future". And as far as the facts we know, the game isn't even in production yet!
pfft, the day Diablo3 comes out: -->Active WoW players = 0 -->Total WoW accounts = millions...slowly expiring -->Active D3 Accounts = millions and millions -->Total D3 Accounts = oh god... --> blizz needs more servers
hey kaivman, i do agree with you, that D3 is probly gonna own the crap our of WoW, however, it dosen't matter, because, both games are made by Blizzard, so to all of the dimwitted people who are like "OH NOES!!one11shift11, WoW isn't gonna be supported" yes it is. the company is gonna keep it up, and then WoW 2 is gonna come out and beat the crap out of D3 and then there is just gonna be an ongoing monopoly of Blizzard pwning every other company that makes MMO's, or pretty much any computer game. Alot like Capcom with GameCube.... anywho. not to worry, my small minded friends, there will always be games kicking ass and Blizzard will allways be swimming in "lewt" because we are geeks, and are irritated by the sun. So keep gaming and supporting Blizzard. Woo Hoo!
