Diablo 15th Anniversary website goes live, firm “almost done” with Diablo III

Thursday, 5th January 2012 17:39 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Blizzard has gone live with a 15 year Anniversary website for Diablo, which offers up a timeline, game overview, a retrospective, various developer interviews, and more. In one of the interviews, Diablo III director Jay Wilson states that the studio is “almost done with Diablo III,” which is a “fitting celebration of the 15th year anniversary for Diablo.” Wilson concluded the talk on D3 stating: “We are getting it to you as soon as we can.” Check out the website through the link. Thanks, Blue.

    Unless they’re keeping some kind of “super build” out of the beta, I find it hard to believe that they’re nearly finished. It feels a lot like Torchlight at the moment. Bare bones stuff (that’s a skelePun).

    I didn’t played Diablo III beta but if it is something like Torchlight than Blizzard is in big trouble.

    Starcraft II was already an ok game.
    Cataclysm was underdeveloped + full of bugs and with latest 4.3 patch content there are still a lot of issues with it.
    Mists of Pandaria looks already like a huge patch with another 5.1, 5.2, 5.3 content + one land and casual talent system.

    Blizzard under Activision is slowly dying in my eyes. I can’t see even polished products from them anymore.

    Or maybe the most talented staff is hard at work for the new MMO…

    Bear in mind that Diablo 3 isn’t coming from Blizzard North (i.e. Condor Games), so it’s bound to feel a lot different anyway.

    If this isn’t good… man. A decade’s wait and for what? I still hold out hope.

    DSB: If recent similarly run betas are any indication, the beta is probably only being used to test their online infrastructure and to iron out any compatibility problems. I doubt that they’re pulling opinions and suggestions for improvement from external sources like beta testers at this late stage in development.

    @4 Yeah, that would make sense.

    Still, it feels extremely empty, with very little of the story elements that made Diablo II worthwhile. If they have a far grander build laying around, it would make more sense to me if they were rolling that out for a stress test.

    Nah, game was dead to me as soon as they announced it had to be Online-Alltime to play. Not going to finance this kind of bullshit behavior from developers.
