Diablo 3 director Jay Wilson has told Game Informer that should Diablo III be released on consoles, it will be built from the ground up and not ported. He also went on to say that they [Blizzard] have “never invested in it to the degree that we are doing now.” So it all looks good for Diablo III coming to…
Fresh new (cinematic) footage from Blizzard’s upcoming Diablo III.
To accompany this footage, Blizzard has announced th Diablo III Limited Edition at the Blizzcon press conference. Similar to the Starcraft 2 LE, it will come with a full-size art book, a behind-the-scenes DVD and Diablo 2 on a special USB drive – the holder being shaped like Diablo’s skull. If you register your LE, you will also score an in-game mount for WoW – Tyrael’s Charger.
Alright. How many of you really expected it to be released this year? Go on, hands up.
The release has been pushed to “early 2012” and the closed Beta will be extended to make use of this delay. So a lucky few are compensated.
“All I can say is it’s going to be awesome. Stay tuned.”- the words of Josh Mosqueira at the Gamescom press conference when he stated that Blizzard “is very, very serious about bringing the Diablo 3 experience to the console.”
While this is not an actual confirmation, it’s pretty clear that they want to bring the game to the console.
We’re not really a PC gaming site to be honest – we really only use one to type up these articles and troll forums, but I come from PC gaming and have very fond memories of Diablo I and II and today has been a news packed one regarding Diablo II, so I thought we’d let you know all about it.
If you’re lucky enough to be in Cologne, Germany next month, be sure to stop in at Gamescom, and have a go playing Diablo III and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
Blizzard Entertainment has now confirmed that the external beta for Diablo III will begin in the third quarter of 2011 reports GIBiz.
