Diablo 2? They've been working on Diablo 3 for four years so i want an educated guess on when it will come out?

My guess...2012.
Blizz always takes their time with games.

Most games back then didn't take very long to make (compared to now, that is), due to the lack of complexity. Newer games take way longer. Also, blizzard has a MUCH different and larger team for all of their games now so the time it takes to make Diablo 3 will not be anything like what it was for D2...

If I had to guess it would be early-mid 09.

I think we will see it much sooner

Im guessing 2010 or mabye at the end of 2009 if we are lucky

Why would it take that long even? They have the game up and running. I've seen the videos. The fact that they actually have videos of gameplay instead of just screenshots or concept art is very promising. I would like to believe that it'll be out sometime at the beginning of next year.

That was one or two places. Even Halo 2 back in the day had a huge gameplay video and they didn't have it out for another year or so.

They have SOME things complete, and they topped off those two areas, but that doesn't mean the whole game is complete. I wish they would give us that demo they showed though, that would be great.

they have the game "up and running" because they've been working on getting it to work for the past four years and making a basic level and characters to show off

now they have to make areas, story sequences, record dialog, and pretty much everything else

this probably won't be out until summer 2009 AT LEAST

considering it's been confirmed that we won't see SC2 this year and that game was announced over a year ago, I think it's safe to say D2 will be similar, probably not even summer 2009 more like Xmas 2009

I don't think it'll be 2010 though
