    Seems like something is going on in the world of Diablo !

    Some of the mayor Diablo-sites on the internet has started a countdown.
    For the moment it's 12 days.

    First, We have www.blizzplanet.com that has a countdown and the words
    "The Cathedral of Light will be shaken in 12 days"
    then we have www.diablo3.com that has also a countdown.
    With the words "The number of days until half the web links to Diablo3.com"

    Is it just a hoax? Or is blizzard going to announce that Diablo3 is in the works?

    Stay tuned :)
    Start the hype people ;)

    Interesting...I hope that's what it is...God knows it's long overdue given it's been almost 8 years now since D2 was released :3eyes:

    If you look at blizzards hiring page, they are hiring all developers for a "next-gen MMO". So if Diablo 3 is in the works, it's going to be a MMO.

    I doubt that. I can't see the logic behind them making another MMO to compete with their own MMO. Maybe Diablo 3 will have pay to pay multiplayer options (like Hellgate), or they are looking for more developers to help with WOW 2.

    Blizzard also said it's not going to be a Diablo MMO when asked about hiring people for a new MMO, they've said it's going to be a whole new line of game.

    So it's not Diablo 3 then.

    D3 is likely their next game, though the next MMO could be a Starcraft or WoW 2, I would lean towards a WoW 2 because they are on their 2nd expansion soon. I would really expect a Diablo to be their next game, or a console title.

    Please let it be World of Lost Vikings. ;)

    But if it turns out to be D3 in development, then this year can't get any better. :banana:

    As of right now Blizzard is OFFICIALLY developing 2 games. (And wrath of lich king expansion)

    We just have to wait and see :)
    1st of may it will bring light to our thoughts.

    Hmm, When I think about it it could be a MMO Diablo 3, however.
    Not a MMORPG ala WoW, I'd say it would be more like Hellgate London in that case.
    Or simply Diablo 3 with a improved Battlenet.

    However, Blizzard did start some rumours of a totaly new line of games.
    Blizzcon is getting closer by the day, so we'll see.

    Well I hope you're right man, because I'm getting tired of sequels and such. Not that they are bad games, it's just that I'd much rather see a new original story line.

    Only if you think that 8 people playing together is massive multiplayer.

    If they announced Diablo 3 this year I think I'd go nut myself. It's awesome getting 1 Blizzard game, but 2. I don't know if I have the time to play 2.

    Agreed.

    I'm tired of seeing the haox websites, balogne rumors, and spoof videos. It's time for a legit Diablo 3 which will be MASSIVELY welcomed by the gaming industry.

    Don't worry, I don't think it has ever taken Blizzard less than 2 years between announcing a game and releasing it. Hell, according to them, they took 8-9 months on game balancing alone with Diablo2.

    So its not as monumental as we had hoped. However I have my suspicions that it is likely a released interview with Blizzard...
