[KT] Blizzard's goal is to release Diablo III this year - Page 8

post #71 of 77
Titan Quest is by far the best hack & slash game after Diablo 2. It might even surpass it in some areas.

Torchlight got boring even before I finished all 35 floors.

Isn't torchlight the first time there has been a decent game within this genre that isn't taking just the diablo recipe and screwing it up?
That's because the creators of d1/2 made that game Torchlight.

Firstly, I seriously doubt people will be drawn away from WOW for D3. Players put so much time & money into their "wow life" they can't just quit for a new game. Also, unless D3 offers something extraordinary in the realm of MMORPG's no1's going to make the switch.

Secondly, Blizz will dominate the role playing market. There's going to be so many people playing either WOW, SC2 or D3 it'll be scary! It doesn't matter which of the three golden geese lays the most eggs, all profits lead back to the same company

Go read WoW forums, there's a 897797903423 page thread of people all saying they can't wait to leave WoW for D3.

As far as the bottom line is concerned it does matter a lot which game people choose, WoW is the biggest cash cow that keeps continually bringing $15/mo per person worth of subscription revenue as opposed to D3 only charging a one - time retail price.

Therefore It comes as no surprise blizzard would rather prioritize going after the low hanging fruit by developing more expansions to milk out WoW, whilst avoiding any possible competition that could jeopardize the amount of customers of their most profitable franchise.

I agree 100%. Titan Quest rocks. I think people blew it off b/c when it was first released some people had problems running the game. Of course that IS a big deal. However it was patched and runs flawlessly now and is really a superb game.
