Anyone have a release date on this yet? I'm not able to get to the site here at work, but I see the preorder is out. Just curious how long I'm going to have to wait...

It's DIII, I'm definitely preordering. Probably my all time favorite and most played game.

You might want to wait a year or so after the release of SC2. Diablo ain't coming out for a while.

It isn't that expensive, when you pre-order you pay the price it is going to be and you are just getting a guarantee to get it earlier than everybody else. Pre-orders aren't cheaper than normal games. Quit being poor.

It is Blizzard. Who knows when anything will come out. I am not holding my breath for either. The good par tis that I didn't really give a crap about DIII. SC2 is going to piss me off with no LAN, unless they put it back in and I just missed the boat on that bit of news.

I am LIVID that shit like this takes so long. Actually, it's more about them showing some screen shots, taking 4 years, showing some more screen shots, taking 1 more year, and then releasing it.

Do we really need to see this shit 3 to 5 years before it is actually released??

And, I am going the cheap bastard route for this sucker. Blizzard has just pissed me off for too long. I am not picking this up when it's released. When it hits $19.99, I'm in. I've waited 10 years so far. And it will probably be another 3 years before it is actually released. So, 2 more years on the 13 won't hurt.

That's fair .. voting with your wallet is the best (only?) way to do it.

Personally, I'll wait until it is done and be happy knowing I'm not getting a bug-riddled sack of crap. However, I do think that Blizzard is resting on their 'we'll release it when it is done' reputation. Over a decade to produce a game? It had better be DAMN good to have waited that long.

Diablo 3 has not been in development for a decade. Nowhere close.

IIRC stores took pre-orders for warcraft 3 over a year before the game came out. Just a heads up.

Correct. But, D2 came out 10 years ago.

I wanted to note that 10 year have already passed since the last Diablo came out. I am sure a decision was made to make a 3rd game at least sometime in 2003.

And, if Diablo 3 comes out before Feb 26th, 2011; I will gladly eat forum crow.

D3 began development around 2001. It started with the old Blizz North crew that develped D2, but that has changed because of restructuring.

Several times over the years from 2001-2005 the official blizzard PR vehemently stated that diablo3 was not in development. They did after awhile say "we have not ruled out revisiting the world of diablo".

They did not start production on diablo3 until well after 2003 - UNLESS they started and scrapped it.

Given blizzards track record for time of announcement to time of release, which is all we have to go on, Diablo 3 will not be released for a long time. Blizzard does not give release dates until VERY close to release. Though I've heard from gaming sites that big brick and mortar stores spend PR money for a game 6 months+ in advance, so if you can follow that you can predict when a game will be released.

Myself I'm gonna keep playing UT2004 and WoW on free servers till it comes out

If the D3 release is anything like SC2, then they will have a target release date and push it back, again and again. D3 is several years off while they work on the SC2 "trilogy".

There is no "Target" release date. Blizzard doesn't give a release date to anyone. Not even the stores. Pre-Order release dates are guesses made by the stores. Not from Blizzard.

Blizzard has already said that they won't release anything until its finished which proves to be true. However, they were looking for a 2009 release which never came to pass and pushed it back.

Starcraft Ghost sparked some serious interest. I am not sure why they did not release it.

Because it didn't meet Blizzard's strict criteria.

It does not matter to me. Once Diablo 3 is out, I am running to store!

yeah.. i'm only playing d3 singleplayer. Their communist version of bnet can kiss my bum. Not paying for 3 different sc2 games either. Blizzard as well as every other big name in gaming is losing my interest. All they ever see anymore is dollar signs, they take away mandatory features like dedicated servers ( iwnet ) , lan capability ( blizz ), draconian drm measures are used by all of them ( except steam it seems ). In short I've become very fed up with the bullshit of corporate america.
