Blizzard: No Diablo 3 Release for 2010

0

Much news and excitement has derived from BlizzCon today but a release for Diablo III next year is not happening. CEO Mike Morhaime has confirmed that the just-revealed World of Warcraft expansion Cataclysmand StarCraft II are the two titles the company expects to hit in 2010.

Not sure about most of you folks but, these World of Warcraft expansions are coming out rather pretty quick and it just keeps coming. Just one year after their release of Lich King, they plan for a second, and in less than another year apart it’ll be out again. This comes in no surprise to me but it still is a huge disappointment.

Its become a trend of Blizzard to announce their games at least 2 years before the actual release date, forcing us to wait in agony. Not sure if this would actually build hype or lost of interest but their games has always hit at full force. With the “Next Gen MMO” and a new IP, I wouldn’t be surprised if Diablo 3 gets pushed back to 2012, but lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for 2011.

If you’ve missed it, Blizzard also revealed the Monk class with a new trailer and gameplay video.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
