first off diablo is dying way faster then wow, to the previous comment. it may never completely die but at the rate its going i personally doubt they will make another expansion. look at twitch.tv, all of the big streamers quit because of all the bs. notice how gabynator, rank 1 right? ya well he cheated like over 300 paragon levels and im sure other exploits as well, hes known for that. seeing as people that are rank 1 cheater to get there says a lot, i doubt people that wanna compete will keep playing this game. it may not be a majority, but its still a real lot of people.Quote from HansAll games are dead since none has ever lived.
People play games to have fun and for the most people will play many different games. Some people will come back to older games and some never do.
There are still people playing commodore 64 games on the commodore 64. I say lucky sob's I wish my commodore 64 was still working so I could play some of the old classics there.
Blizzard made their money on Diablo 3 since it sold extremely well since it is one of the highest selling games on the PC. I do not know how it did on the consoles since I do not have one at the moment. But likely it did extremely well as well.
and yes blizzard did make money, but so did many other games that have failed miserbly..that doesnt mean anything. the game sold well because diablo 2 was a great game and people wanted to relive that experience, they even gave it a second chance for ros. do you think people will really give it a third chance? and a forth chance? and a fifth chance? exploit after exploit, them not banning anyone for cheating, hell there might as well be white rings and duped items because it wouldnt change the game at all at the moment.
