10 years was around the time Blizzard dropped it's last major patch for D2 the 1.13c patch, though they kept supporting the game releasing patches as recent as a year ago fixing minor issues with the game.
Will D3 always have a player base? Sure as long as Blizzard keeps the servers running it will have people playing it.
I've often wondered how many longtime players of D2--I mean guys on Youtube who say things like 'In 20 years of playing I've only seen this item drop once'--are playing the same character for that long. I stick with longtime characters, I've never re-made the same class, I just wonder how many others do that, to the point where everything they equip is GG and the characters themselves are near god-like.
