D3 is in Q4 2011 and they just build hype cause hype is free advertisement.
Whether or not it is released in Q4 2011 (hopefully it will be), they are, IMHO, masters of building hype. They have created tons of hype, all by using just a few vague statements. Of course that says a great deal about the game's fan base. There are a lot of us. And we are hanging on their every words.
Well, personally, since it being Blizzard and they almost completely refuse to give away any definitive dates on anything, think it'll be in july. essentially from the grounds that if Blizzard gives a date, which they almost never do, they must be quite sure that they're going to make it
however, this could also be me being optimistic.
One thing I have searched for and excuse me if I overlooked this, and since I am not allowed to create my own topic - (for some reason resetting my old account password would not work LOL)- I was wondering if Bioshock could comment on this one for me, based on the details of the game and everything known, what is a good estimate of the size of the game? Is it going to be bigger then Sacred 2 Fallen Angel at a massive size of 20gb installed with the High res expansion?, or is it going to be something around what most new game titles are around these days around the 8-12gb range?
I said July, although i think late july early august, and having this high standard of theirs I think that all the systems would be fairly polished before going into internal testing and the game would be at least 99% (including bnet aspects) done. So 2-3 months of internal testing and 3-4 months beta and we have a 2011 release ppl!!!
... that is of course if nothing goes horribly wrong, fingers crossed, knock on wood
I voted for August. It'll be a pleasant surprise if it happens in July.
Beta needs to come out in the summer so I can actually play Diablo 3. I start graduate school in the fall and can guarantee I wont have time to play. Even if I did, it would piss me off knowing that I wont be able to put in the time to actually level a good character. So im keeping my fingers crossed that the beta is released in the summer, and then crossing my toes to actually GET the beta after its released.
