The IncGamers.com Diablo 3 network site, Diii.net compiles several comments made by Blizzard from different sources which summarize their plans: We'll see more than one expansion for Diablo III.
No real surprise! I was expecting to have a few for DIII! Thanks for the confirm!
Blizzard ppl say so many different things at different places, just putting 2+2 together isn't horrible hard in the end =)
uhh.. this isn't a confirmation, Its just an assumption.
Well, I guess now the deal is HOW MANY expansions will be seen? =D
Chances are each expansion is to fight one of the three brothers of evil: Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal
Real Blizzzzzzzard style, can't wait! For the game, and the expansion, the next expansion.. and the next expansion and so forth! :P
Consumer society ftw? =P
Cool, more expansions to come...I cna't wait
Sounds interesting indeed. The question remains how often will this include killing Diablo again? :P Can't do without it if the title says Diablo imo!
Well, if you check out Diii.net, where most of the diablo community hangs out, there is actually a huge debate on whether that big "Diablo face" is truly Diablo, or possibly some other demon. Diablo might have been "upgraded" to immortal status, and "too powerful" for a game boss, or perhaps he's really truly dead...
@Leord: Nah, Diablo represents evil so I don't think he is truely dead anytime soon. Who knows, maybe he did die but he is revived. I have no clue how things like that work with an entity such as Diablo or his brothers for that matter. Maybe someone who read the novells knowns more on the subject?
As expected. Good news though.
Oooo more money making oppertunities for blizzard!! :P
If they can make money while I have a great time gaming, I'm cool with that. Great value for your money, usually anyway.
@Leord: if that means less World of Warcraft and more Starcraft, Diablo and what ever else not WoW they have got in the works then its a plan I say ;)
Get the game out first, then work on expansions!
I almost agree, but what if they plan the expansions to tie intricately into the main story, rather than the bolt on rubbish we see from so many other companies. In that case they would have to work on the expansions at the same time as the full game to some degree.
@Perjoss: yea, in order to make them good enough their should be an overall architecture of the series. As long as Metzen and Co. are still on it I have faith in the fact that it will be done right.
I think they are doing just that. =)
please. Diablo II with 1 expansion went fine. Oh well, looks like Blizzard will milk D3 after milking WoW, and soon SC2.
Great news! Looking forward to the game! ^^ But is it me or is Blizzard splitting their games into parts? I don't mind, they'll have more time this way to develop and deliver quality games! It gives me the idea Blizzard is changing their strategies!
i smell milk :P
more proof blizzard has turned into money grubbing jackasses. My theory about WOW corrupting blizzard was true all along. The third dimension has ruined the blizzard i knew.
well since they confirmed DIII this year it woon't be out for a while =p but if they can make it and the expansions as good as DII I'm all in for it.
