Blizzard didn't fire the original Dev team. They left Blizzard. The reason D3 is taking so long is because the game had been scrapped 2-3 times previously.

Really, it has to end eventually, and it's been going a long long time. They can only change it so much before they just need to come out with something completely new.

Beta patch 5 notes:

General

All characters have been wiped. As part of this process, artisans, gold, and items (including those placed on the auction house or in a shared stash) have also been reset.
Switching out class skills will now require the use of a new feature known as the Nephalem Altar. Nephalem Altars are currently located in New Tristram, as well as in key locations throughout Act I. Clicking on an altar will open up the skill UI, allowing both active and passive skills to be selected or exchanged.

Quests

Gold rewarded from quests has been significantly reduced
Experience rewarded from quests after level 4 is now based on the number of mobs you’d have to kill to earn the same amount of experience, rather than being a strict percentage of a level

Skills

New passive skills have been added for all classes. See individual class notes below for more information.
AoE (Area of Effect) skills for all classes have had their damage reduced
Single-target skills for all classes have had their damage increased
All skills are now based off weapon damage

Even if Diablo3 compares to Blizzards revamp of Starcraft 2, that will be good enough for my $$. All I want is new content/graphics and the same formula of Diablo1/2 - any improvements a bonus.

"With every game we make, the temptation is always very strong to launch as soon as possible. However, we didn't put so many years of work into Diablo III to release a game that was almost ready," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "The beta test is going very well, and we look forward to making the most of the extra time we're taking to deliver an experience that lives up to our vision for the game and the expectations of our players. Next year is going to be an incredibly busy one for Blizzard, and we hope an incredibly fun one for Blizzard gamers."
Probably a placeholder...but who knows?

I really really hope this is released before February. My brother is coming back from the Navy on leave for three weeks and we're going to do some hardcore gaming while he is here. If this game is out when he is here, oh man!

It's not expected to release until June 2012 - sorry to burst everyone's bubble.

That is exactly what Diablo III is going to be about -
spamming your inbox

Meantime, you may wanna check your PC for security settings, AV software / firewall etc

Oh and YOU are not thrilled by battlenet security ?

Man you are getting phished in the middle of the day, and you don't even know it??

I have been in the beta now for a while, got all the classes to the max level for the beta. Like the graphics and such, does not look like wow at all, at least what I have seen of wow. Sounds and effects fit the dark setting. It feels a bit dumbed down vs. Diablo 2, no skill tress and such. Crafting mechanic is good and is rewarding. If the beta is any reflection on the true game, it is a certain buy on launch for me.

So far I have not had any connection issues or any disconnects. I even played a few games in multi-player and had no issues. Overall a good beta test. Game is more than I expected it to be.
