Scanning the net, we came across the rumor control page at GameSpot. Most of it was X-box related, but the last item really caught my attention. It involves development on Diablo 3, which has not been publicly announced by Blizzard.
From the GameSpot Article:
Midweek, the fan site Diabloii.net received an e-mail from someone claming to be a “musician in Czech Republic.” The person said that, “I have recently been to Bratislava in Slovak Republic for recording sessions with local Radio Symphony Orchestra, where we just recorded music for Diablo 3.” So why should we give credence to someone who could be a crank from a former Warsaw Pact country? Because the music for the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction was recorded in Bratislava, Slovakia, with the Slovak Radio Philharmonic, around four months before the expansion pack was released. By that same calculus, if the music for Diablo III was recorded this month, then the game could be released before the end of the year. (Although some rumors pegging it as a PlayStation 3 launch title would make that unlikely.) So while theres no definitive proof that Diablo III is in the can, it is looking more and more likely that Blizzard will announce the game soon…and perhaps as early as E3.
Hmmmmm…… This could be interesting…..
In further Interplay news, Darkhorse comics announced the release of “Diablo: Tales of Sanctuary”. This story is going to be released in Graphic Novel format some time in November. Continue reading Diablo Expands to Comics
I received email today from Blizzard about Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. It has gone gold and will be in stores June 29th, 2001.
