"The announcement of the Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals 2007 held in South Korea, and its one-week splash page teaser got many Diablo fans hyped up. When Starcraft 2 was announced, Diablo fans' hopes went down the drain. I have seen reactions at different Diablo forums, including the official forums, where fans have lost all hope for Diablo III.
I would say to those fans, it is not over until the fat lady sings. Diablo is coming … there is no doubt of that. The signs of its coming is all over the place. You just have to be sharp to notice.
Blizzard has been hiring developer staff for the last three years. The job descriptions in the past three years have clearly stated the job openings were for the "Diablo Team"."
