No more game announcements for BlizzCon '07

  • #1
    A rep from Blizzard just sent me notice that there would be no more announcements at BlizzCon tomorrow (Saturday), so for those of you (ie: all of you) who were hoping that this would be the day that Diablo 3 was finally confirmed, I'm sorry to inform you that you'll have to continue to wait. We all know that it's eventually coming, but the waiting for the official confirmation of the third game along with some idea of what it will be like is a really hard thing to wait for. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I figured it would be best to tell you about this now rather than have you guys waiting around all day Saturday hoping that we'd hear more about Diablo 3. Thanks for sticking with us though... Blizzard is listening to us and sooner or later (ok, later) Diablo 3 will become a reality.

    In other Blizzard-related news, the rep just sent me word that our own Umaro participated in the first-ever Starcraft II tournament with Loc Teinh (from w3roc.com) on his team and won in the first round, but they were unfortunately defeated in round 2 by TeamLiquid. The overall winner of the tournament was TeamLiquid who were then given the opportunity to play Karune and Stephen Chang from the eSports team. TeamLiquid wasn't able to defeat them though. Unfortunately there's no replay video footage from this tournament, but maybe that will change later on.

    More news as it becomes available.


    Sad Diablo indeed. (thanks to Zabadak for sharing this image with us)

    Thanks though you guys for your updates. It was nice to have people there on the inside keeping us informed.

    .... Well I guess you guys won't see me for a while... I'll pop in every now and then to keep track of the rumors, but Blizzard disappoints me and I should really be focusing more on my schoolwork rather than this. It was fun meeting and getting to know all of you, but I will be back to celebrate with all of you when D3 is finally announced. -- Little Boy

    Yeah I hope you'll all stick around. This really is one of the greatest gaming communities online and everybody seems to be really cool to each other for the most part. Pretty impressive when you consider how long we've been around and how the game hasn't even been announced yet.

    You guys rock.

    As Blizzcon got closer and closer it was much more unlikely they were going to announce Diablo 3 as there was no hype. Blizzard always build up to announcements (or at least always has in the past).

    Well the big debate now is Team 3 working on Diablo 3 or the new franchise which they mentioned last year?

    I doubt it very much as anything new would be almost as big as Diablo. I suppose Team 3 is most likely to be Diablo 3 given all the snippets of information we have, but then they also said they were working on a new project altogether so one or the other is pretty much false unless they are doing an entirely new diablo e.g. MMO.

    Well we all kinda and kind didnt see thins coming we lived on hope. And that's what it's all about a strong community having a dream as one. And sharing that dream with each other. I will probably not be back on this site for awhile as now I am moving forward in my life. I have GED class's that start monday and after that I will be going to college for my 2 year degree in computer science / technician. And no I'm not saying im abandoning you guys, you guys are too cool for that. But for now I am (just for a lil bit :D). It was good no wait it was a grand opportunity to share a dream with all you. It was one hell of a ride guys!
