Just to keep this thread up to date.


Blizzard has said that all development for D3 has been completed and they are purely in testing and tweaking mode.

It is strongly suggested that D3 will release Q4 2011. I'd expect a release date from this year's Blizzcon

i very much doubt that. i would love nothing more than to play the game this year but given blizzard's history, my humble guess is june 2012.

at last year's blizzcon just a few months back, multiple sources at blizzard said you can play the game from start to finish but most acts still have only placeholders for many areas and big bosses. that is not a good sign as it hints that the lengthy part of the development, level design, is still in its infant stages.

also, based on what's been released about character classes, they have quite a bit of balancing to do. the problem being, as soon as you introduce a cool spell for a new character, like the demon hunter, you have to revisit the remaining 4 characters give them something just as cool.

I guess time will tell who is right, however I have recent news (not rumor) on my side. The development of the game is mostly done according to Blizzard.
source: http://www.diablofans.com/topic/2391...lly-completed/

Which means right now they are play testing and tweaking. I also have an insider friend that works for Blizzard Austin that says they are working on the pvp system. Lastly, to include a bit of speculation the leaked internal Blizzard calender shows D3 in a Q4 2011 release spot, and so far with the other things that Blizzard has rolled out in recent history that leaked timetable seems to be accurate.

I really hope that I'm wrong and you are right. I just remember how it was with D2 and D3 would already have to be in private beta if they wanted to launch in Q4 of this year, don't you think?

Pretty cool. But I feel like the nameplate on that box is too high up. Can't really easily see it vs. the huge demon.

Doubt it will require much to run this at max.

You should be building your rig for Battlefield 3. That is the game changer this year...nothing else will hold a candle to it.

I don't think you'll need to spend a fortune for this new game. It won't be that high spec. It will still look good though.

agreed, blizzard isn't really known to be a leader in what's the best and latest in the graphics world. When D2 came out, it was already a few years behind. 640x480 as max resolution in 2000? That was just pathetic.

a geforce gtx 460 1gb (or similar) set at max settings should be more than enough for this game imho.

Yeah but it also expands their potential customer base. Not a bad idea at all. It has definitely helped WoW out, while other MMOs come out with blazing cutting-edge engines and hardly anyone can play them on decent settings so they look like crap anyway and run like crap as well.
