Speaking in the latest Blizzard podcast, Diablo III lead designer Jay Wilson has confirmed that the game’s underlying tech is basically done, and that the team is currently focused on making content.

“A lot of the team is really production focused now and we’re generating content for the most part; a lot of the tech and underlying engine is really solid,” Wilson said.

Don’t bet on seeing the game any time soon, however.

“If we haven’t rebuilt something five times it really doesn’t deserve to be shipped,” Wilson added. “That’s pretty much our policy.”
