The game is scheduled for release in early 2007. Here’s one of the classes that premiered at E3: a Cabalist.

Now that E3 is in the past, what made us think Diablo 3 will premiere at E3? Wishful thinking? Crazy fan art?
I’d say it’s our business savvy. Come on, Blizzard, listen to your local customers.
- We’ll buy Diablo 3 for $69!
- We’ll shell out $99 for a Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition.
- We’ll also buy all kinds of figurines and don’t forget all the books we’ll buy.
I’m putting a $100 bid for the first Diablo sorceress you make (make it like a little Barbie doll!).
When these guys were discussing (professionally) which rumors are true and which are bogus, they voted that Diablo 3 is most likely in development. The specific rumor that they’ve picked up was the one about Diablo 3 soundtrack being recorded in the Czech republic.
An often overlooked aspect of Diablo (the original one) was that it got a huge following that spawned a ton of user-generated content. Jarulf did an amazing Diablo guide in the most laborious way possible – arming weapons and swinging them at enemies for hundreds of times.
When Diablo Hellfire came out a year later, he kept at it, expanding the information through and through. An amazing effort. I’ve put up my own site about Diablo 2, so I can tell that the amount of effort that went into this guide was simply beyond anything I could do.
If you’re a real Diablo fan, this guide will probably bring a tear (or two) to your eye: Jarulf’s Diablo and Hellfire guide. If you need a Diablo 2 guide, you should visit this Diablo 2 website. There’s plenty of Diablo 2 downloads as well: Diablo 2 cheats, saves, maphacks, item editors, runeword recipes, etc.
… are just that – rumors.
My last post (Blizzcon Diablo 3 beta key) stipulated that the beta key Blizzard was giving out was a Diablo 3 beta key. Not so. There’s new evidence to suggest, it’s for the WoW expansion that’s coming out later this year.
Sorry to disappoint. No beta keys this time.
Now, without getting all psyched… this could very well be for the WOW expansion.
Yet, a few bloggers have been swearing it could be Diablo 3. Looking at the news we’ve been getting recently – Diablo 3 is still in the making. After all, Blizzard recently recruited an art director to work on it.
