During the quarterly conference call Blizzard has revealed that they do not expect to release a new title this year and outlines their current release schedule.
Wow.... So, they show Diablo 3 back in 2008 and what they show then looked pretty good... it's now 2011 and they still won't be releasing it... Actually, this is classic Blizzard. I think the appropriate internet Meme for this situation would be... Fuuuuuuuuuuu!
Its Blizzard. Says enough! They dont do schedules.
On the plus side... I can't wait to play DIABLO 3 on my PS3. ;)
Just bring back Starcraft: Ghost Blizzard. I can wait as long as it is coming! edit: @Cheeseknight28 below I care because I can only imagine a stealth like game on console made to Blizzards standard. Ghost in itself is also an interesting character despite the novel. I want Starcraft: Ghost! Redo the asset, redo the story or whatever, but just bring it!
Why do people still care about Ghost? I mean, the character already had a novel and had a minor role in Starcraft II so I seriously doubt they will ever bother restarting development. They would have to start over from scratch too, the story would have to be redone and all the graphical assets are outdated. It's just not going to happen.
does this mean the Zerg and Protoss expansion pack for StarCraft II not coming this year too? that SUCKS! I'm not expecting any NEW game release, knowing Blizzard, but SCII expansion is kinda like a no brainer for this year, no? WTF is wrong with ActiBliz these days??!
This is why I hate STOCKHOLDERS!! They have too much influence of creativity and product that it gets to the point of share holder profit over customer satisfaction. No Diablo 3 means Torchlite 2 and Darkspore will have ZERO competition. Starcraft 2 Heart of The Swarm looks to be pushed back to 2012 as well, GREAT! so now 2012 looks to be Half Life 2 ep3 Far Cry 3 Doom 4 SC2:HotS Diablo 3 maybe a new Lineage and I'm sure another Warcraft expansion or the new Blizzard MMOFPS plus STALKER 2 Metro 2034 and Bioshock Infinite. I'm all for quality but 10 years between games is crazy. Many gamers were excited about playing Diablo 3 this year.
hehe We just have to believe it'll be worth the wait.
Yeh bad news for Diablo fans :(
Didn't see that coming. Probably working on some crappy console port of the game delaying its release.
They didn't absolutely guarantee no 2011 titles, but they said none were planned. And when's the last time blizzard finished something *before* they expected?
I don't care. Diablo 3 is worth the wait.
i been waiting for diablo 3 like forever. hope this isnt true really want it to come out this year..
I think that at this point, all we can really hope for is release date info (read: a seasonal guess) for Diablo III and Heart of the Swarm at this year's Blizzcon. We know what "Geek is!!" now Blizzard, so pretty please give us real information on these games at Blizzcon 2011
BULLSHIT where is Diablo III GIVE IT TO ME NOW (thats totally what she said)
To all those people saying I was an idiot for saying Diablo 3 wouldn't come out this year, you can suck it.
