Has Blizzard given any hint if they are trying to release Diabo 3 before Starcraft 2? I'd imagine them trying to finish off Diablo 3 for a release would delay Starcraft 2 even more.

here's an interview from the 28th where they state that they hope SC2 launches before D3 and that it's further along in the dev cycle.blizz never releases until they are satisfied with the product so with them you just never know.

D3 is being worked on by a different development team in Blizzard. "Blizzard North" I believe.

If they're talking about SC2 "hopefully" being released before D3 and D3 "hopefully" being released before the tentative 2011 year then we got some serious issues... I should be used to this by now, it's blizzard. They love to work on games for 4 years then announce them and release them 5 years later!

Better that than doing what most game companies do and release a sloppy unfinished product.

Definitely. Blizzard has never released a bad or unfinished game. I'll wait 4 years if it'll mean a great game to play for 12 (Which was the case for the original starcraft)

well if the rumors are true it looks like SC2 will in fact not launch before D3.

I think that will probably end up being a good business decision... put the extra time into the game that has the larger fanbase... Not to mention all the starcraft fans are likely to go out and buy D3 just to pass time until starcraft is actually released.

I know I will be buying both ;-D

Wow. That article can be misleading though, there's less people working on sc2 because it's closer to being finished than D3. Still if they won't release SC2 before D3 and D3 hopes to come out by 2011 we're now looking at 2011 being best case for SC2?

lol... :-b

Also gotta be careful with these anonymous sources from inside blizzard. Last time I heard news from an anonymous source from inside blizzard it was the 12 year old kid of a secretary who worked for blizzard but actually had nothing to do with game development; that "World of Starcraft" was going to be announced last March... :-b
