Speaking to VG247 at Games Convention, Blizzard co-founder Frank Pearce said that Diablo III's requirements from the major Battle.Net upgrade currently being worked on at the firm will be specific to the game itself.

"Diablo III will have its own unique needs in terms of what Battle.Net provides," he said.

Pearce also revealed that the team working on the new Battle.Net is a separate division within Blizzard.

"The Battle.Net team is actually a separate group of engineers working on that functionality," he added. "So, they're working with the StarCraft II team and they'll be working pretty integrally with the Diablo III team as well."

No date's been set for the release of the Battle.Net 2 upgrade as yet, but we do know it's going to ship alongside StarCraft II. So that's probably next year.
