New character classes. Barbarian seems like a waste since there is already a warrior class. The Witch Doctor class sounds interesting, but didn't D2 have a Shaman class? It's been quite some time since I've played.

Screen shots look badass.

I haven't played WoW and it's been, what seems like ten years (and maybe has been) since I've played D2. Have they fixed battle.net? Do they still use battle.net? One of the huge turnoffs with the old servers were the ability to hack and cheat. Made me almost never play on-line, and the few times I did, I regretted it.

barbs were in D2. Warrior was a Diablo class. D2 had necromancers and in the expansion the Druid. Witch doctor seems like a combination of the two.

2 years to develop new netcode, finish the game, have a beta, fix bugs, do all the revamps to battle.net.
I think 3~4 years is more in line. Especially since they have wow expansion, sc2, and next-gen mmo(if rumors are true) that they're working on.

WoW and Starcraft 2 are developed by totally different parts of the company. They did state however that the new battlenet will be released when SC2 comes out, and then diablo will appear, so SC2 will be first, 2 - 4 years is a good estimate

I didn't mean productions on WoW - Expansion or SC2, I meant it as like, they wouldn't release SC2 during the Wow expansion, or release diablo 2 during one of their other big launch titles.

I'm gonna be re-playing diablo2 to get "back" into this game, and knowing blizzard this game will not need an updated computer to play. But who knows what will change in 2~4 years.

I no longer have my copies, but I'm going to get both Diablo 1 and 2 as well as the expansions for both again.

If you liked diablo2, the game Titan Quest and its expansion immortal throne are a pretty good upgrades from it.

its still "we the people"right?

well, if the rumors are true and this game will support dx10.1 than yeah. you'll need a computer that can at least run WoW fairly well. (yours should be fine).
but this game isn't coming out for awhile.

If you buy it now, it'll be too slow to run D3 by the time it comes out.

Just FYI, the Wow Wrath of the Lich king beta test is underway. From all of the data being released for WotLK it seems like the expansion is a lot further along than many people thought it was. This might clear the way for speeding up Diablo III. Honestly, I can't see them announcing this game and then taking 3 or 4 years to release it.

For tons of info on WotLK, check out www.mmo-champion.com they update daily.

They announced Star Craft 2 a long time ago and haven't heard a word about that one.

You just have to know where to look:

I'd be suprised if we don't have a big burst of information, screenshots, trailers, etc right about the time WotLK hits the market.

I knew about that, but they announced SC2 like last year and it's not gonna be out this year. Why announce shit if it's 2 years away from production?

The pricks at Blizzard are perfectionists, that is the only reason. On one hand you hate the wait, on the other its well worth it.
