IGN has done a video interview with Paul Sams, Blizzard’s COO (mhey, thanks to for the link). I agree there’s hope that the Diablo franchise is not dead… yet!
Here’s a few bits and pieces from the interview which I found … revealing:
- Diablo movie – when talking about WoW, The Movie, Paul said “we would LOVE to bring certain of the other franchise to the big screen”. So if the WoW movie comes out strong and Legendary Pictures live up to the challenge, I think we can have a Diablo movie (in our life time yeah!)
- Diablo 3 – “It is definitely a very important franchise to us,” said Paul. The bad news – they are so focused on WoW, they are probably not “returning” to it soon.
So don’t get your hopes high for now. Or rather, get your hopes high but patience will still be key!
