GamingSteve.com has a small write up about Diablo 3 using some "inside" information. In short, they have been working on the game for many years. The concept of Heaven Vs Hell which oddly enough, was posted before in our story line forums.

What strikes me the most are the WOW comments, such as, "Blah blah blah, Blizzard will not release D3 because it will compete with WOW."
The fact of the matter is that WOW will experience competition this year no matter what, and Blizzard knows this-- they are not fools. If one thinks that other game developers are not, this very moment, racing to develop a game to tap into this multi-million dollar MMORPG market, you have been playing WOW far too much.
Sure, blizzard has a WOW expansion on its way, but that is nothing more than beating a dead horse. Diablo will be announced by Blizzard this year, but only if they do not want to give up their market share.
So you ask: “Then why are we seeing so many Diablo-related job postings, Blizzard must be behind… right?”
The answer is simple: No, wrong. You do know that all of those job opportunities are for artwork… right? Lets use an analogy to clarify this answer.
Pretend all of us here at diablo3.com want to build a brand new sports car. Should we (A) build the car’s chassis and engine first, then design some flashy artwork that works around the car’s superior design, or should we (B) design the artwork first, and then adapt the car’s engine and chassis around it?
If any of you choose (B), the odds are that you will build a car that cannot perform like a sports car, let alone like any car at all.
