As a fan of Diablo 2, I have to admit that when the development studio behind the game, Blizzard North, was shut down I was quite nervous about the future of the series. A little before they were closed it was rumored that they had been working on Diablo 3, which naturally made a lot of people, including myself, very excited.
After the studio was closed, Blizzard never made mention of there being a sequel to a franchise that I dearly loved. However, during 2008′s Blizzard Worldwide Invitational in Paris, France the game was announced and since that announcement many fans have been anticipating the release of the game.
If you have not played any of the previous games in the franchise you may be asking what is it about the Diablo series that makes it a must play title, why should you care about it?
