I'm pretty sure the 4.5 million copies sold says otherwise. Blizzard makes great games, and it takes a while to make great games. Deal with it.

I have to say I am not looking forward to Diablo 3 for a few reasons.

1. Blizzard fired the creators of Diablo/Diablo 2.
2. Blizzard is allowing the team that made World of Warcraft make Diablo 3.
3. The game looks like a bastardization of the original "dark" games.
List continues....from the demo gameplay I must say this is literally World of Diabliocraft. Just waiting for the "surprise pay to play" to pop up next.

Mind you I am not bashing WoW....however they shouldn't allow creators of 1 game to make a completely different game. Reason being their mindset has been on WoW so many of the things they do will be like WoW. This is a problem when your trying to make a world that Evil has rampaged as WoW is about as dark as the sun.

Developers (all kinds - not just programmers) are a dime a dozen.

Good developers are pretty rare.

I believe everybody kind of knew this already, but it is great to hear anyways. We will see if it actually does come out this year.

About how long this game is taking: Remember how long it took for SC2 to come out? Well when it finally did come out it seemed that everybody forgot about that after seeing how well polished the game really was. I can wait for Diablo 3 another year if it turns out how SC2 did.

OT: Kotaku is so stupid now, it looks like a mobile site or something

Sure, Blizzard was successful with WoW but does every game have to base their art and graphics on WoW? D1, D2, and Hellfire Expansion (expansion not made by Blizzard) looked nothing like WoW. I think the graphics look almost cell shaded.

Blizzard has taken ages to release every single game they have made and all of them are 90+ on Metacritic. Patience young ones...

You wondered when you are going to see $69.99 games in the US? When this comes out will be my guess.
No dude, you are fanboyism at it's most obvious. Anti-Activision Fanboyism.

The company doesn't owe you a game you child. Stop being so impatient. There are plenty of games I'm fans of, but I don't get pissed there isn't a sequel... do you get pissed when your favorite band isn't making an album?

I mean seriously, stop trying to call people out because they don't rage over a freaking video game not being released. That doesn't make someone a fanboy...

P.S. nice touch just randomly throwing out some garbage about a price hike that you have 0 proof(or really any reason to believe) to back up at the end.

Oh so if you're a game developer, once you've made you first game that's it for life?!?! All you can make is sequels or expansions for that game?!?!?

Grow up.

Because Blizzard doesn't use placeholder art... OH WAIT, half the SC2 models looked like crap until a little before beta started. And you are also comparing 2D to 3D. It is impossible for the game to look very similar to D2 just because of that. Look at SC2 vs SC1, it looks decently different because of the difference between 2D and 3D.

And as for your last statement, Kotick has absolutely no influence on the development of Diablo 3, nor does he have any influence on the development of any Blizzard games.
