Okay well long story short… I visited a friend in California for a weekend. He made a friend a while back who works for Blizzard. (For obvious reasons we will not be including any names.) Well the three of us went out for wings that night. However this story does have to do with D3 not just future games. So I’ll post it here. After wing night, we went home started having a few drinks. We began with a bit of guitar hero. Colored notes started flashing by, and so did the drinks. Well we weren’t really trying to pry too much because he is kind of our friend… I guess, or his friend at least. He was a little vague on a few parts so I’ll leave them out. The main things we did get out of him are: “Yes the World of Diablo was already decided on.” As most of you have already guessed. Now we tell why this is posted here. “Diablo 3 is actually more of the “harbinger” as Diablo put it, of World of Diablo.” Apparently as we talked about the game for a little bit. Diablo 3 is going to be a “platform” type of game so to speak, to build upon the Diablo storyboard. Most likely we will be seeing, factions, creation of factions, new cities, and towns. Supposedly the revelation of the character classes we will see in the new mmorpg or as I’m getting to strategy. The vague part as I put it was actually Blizzard apparently discussing the possible creation of a Diablo strategy game. However rather then make Diablo into a strategy game. Blizzard most likely will just shove the whole “LOTR” sized storyboard into Diablo 3. That part has not yet been decided. Over all that’s really as much as we were able to get out of him so. So I’m not going to start to try and make things up. That’s simply all we got.
first of all. this cant be that credible. second... if it is and they guy told yo uand he finds out you told people, you just ruined your trust between you and ur friend and this guy that works for blizzard. thats kinda low.
Interesting information, but I personally hope a Diablo MMO never sees the light of day.
Agreed, while it has potential in terms of the game mechanics, having 1000s of other heroes around at all times would dilute the effect that the Daiblo series is supposed to have. There are supposed to be few heroes that can push the darkness out of the world, and you are one of those.
At a time like this, shit like this shouldnt even be looked at. Mods please do something. If you arent a reliable source or cant prove this actually happened dont post it, we've seen this shit 3479823749283 times.
