Diablo 3 News Watch

Support the site and Digg this article!

The goal of this thread is to put the rapidly growing amount of news and rumors that are building up around Diablo 3 possibly being announced at the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational.

Re: Blizzard's Worldwide Invitational
Last year Blizzard announced Starcraft 2, this year many rumours are floating around that a Diablo 3 announcement is going to take place.

It would make sense to use this event to announce what millions of fans have been waiting for.

Also, i would like to point out that June 29th is the Diablo 2 release date anniversary. What a perfect day to announce the next Diablo.

Re: Blizzard Job openings

There is a large assortment of job postings for some "Top Secret" game. Many of the postings begin with this "The team behind Diablo I and II is looking for a". It's obvious that they are working on another game, and hopefully the team behind Diablo I and II are working on III lol.

New job postings as of 3/14 - 4/5 of the job listings that day were Diablo related.

  • #8 Aussensaiter
    I wonder if Blizz is noticing what the heck is going on in the friggin fanbase. And if they take consequence.

    But hail to the King(or should I say Lord). He will come back, again.

    LOL wow, I thought I was the only one getting that busy server error thing.
  • #12 PhrozenDragon
    So you're not the onyl one aye? (Well, I figure everybody got the "Server is busy" message)

    I however have no idea what news have actually been posted here and which of them are actually credible. Any post made by Medievaldragon should be checked though I suspect.
  • #13 Silicium
    I didnt get the "server is busy"... :(

    Anyhow... my fingers are crossed....
  • #14 Zetiam
    i dont get it what server busy thing are you guys talking about.. is diablo II server busy or what.
  • #15 Aussensaiter
    Omfg.
    I just noticed something, and don't want to hold it back, and share it =)
    Every Blizz game was accesable for any age. Clear,all games had an minimum age of 12. Except Diablo II, it had 16. But wasn't played at the Conventions in the last time. So, the first one, where there is an certain age, you have to be, is in France. And guess what, it's 16 years Oo
