A rumour about Diablo III being released before StarCraft II recently appeared. IncGamers are calling BS through developer information.
Yep, thought so. StarCraft II has a hard, 2009 release goal, per the developers. DIII? No goal...maybe 2010, maybe 2011.
I didn't think there was any question.
I think what he meant was that SC2 actually got a date from Activision, and D3 is likely to be released 1-2 years later. Ergo: The "source" is way off. Same conclusion everyone else did, besides Diablo fanbois....
So basically a rumor started by someone that doesn't work for Blizzard was debunked by another rumor started by someone that doesn't work for Blizzard.
Reading your user bio: "My Goal is to get ignored my as many people as possible without losing my bubbles." Lol, good one =) Still, you fail at making people ignore you on this one ;)
I am just amazed it got a thousand digs on Digg.com O.O
Yeah, how did THAT happen? o.O
Where do people come up with this stuff? Wishful thinking won't get us a new Blizzard game to play any sooner.
Well, we might get Diablo playable demo at BlizzCon, I'd be happy about that, but having D3 released in 2009 is a very vain dream...
Hah, no offense to the D3 fanbois out there, but yeah there is no way blizz would step up production of a title started AFTER sc2, not to mention announcement dates, enough to have it released before sc2. Just not gonna happen lol.
Why do people even bother posting things that are obvious fake. Just a cheap way of getting attention...
Yeah, I mean, they might have gotten 10k pageviews from that, or perhaps even close to twice that, but is the tarnished reputation worth it?
I don't believe Blizzard will release DIII sooner than SCII, even if there are more people working on DIII. Cause IMHO I believe that the SCII fan base is bigger than that of DIII, thanks to the almost entire Korean population. If they're smart, which they probably are, they'll release SCII mid/end 2009 and DIII by the end of 2010. You don't want to release them too soon after each other, cause there are plenty of people who will want to play both games, including myself, but both take a long time to master!
Well, actually, D3 sold in 18,5 million copies, and SC2 in about half that. Still, it's really hard to measure how Korean Baangs do with cash, so the total money from SC might actually have been more, as well as all advertisement on b.net etc to drive people to buy D2 while playing SC1 ;)
Much more information would be out on DIII if it where near completion, where as SCII has most things revealed. Sure that SCII takes time to balance, and most likely has work left to do on the SP campaigns, but DIII has to face similar problems too.
Utter tosh! A transparent attempt to drum up hits...which of course it did. He shoots, he scores:)
I feel that you are correct. Big prestigious titles are always deployed for effect.
