Recently, Jay Wilson said in an interview that fans of the Diablo franchise would hate Blizzard once the announcement of one of the five classes was made at BlizzCon. To this, a fan expressed at the Battle.net forums with certainty that the next class that would make us hate Blizzard uses guns. Nothing but speculation.
To this Bashiok responded with humor, but the bottomline is there is no guns planned for Diablo 3. You can settle down. For now.
Well, you have to realize that it's been 20 years, and in technological terms that can be a very long time. We're trying to create a world that's not static, its filled out, and with that it's an advancing world. With that amount of time, and also the loss of the Arreat Summit much of the remaining barbarian culture has focused on... nah I'm just kidding, there aren't any guns. -- source
