Is this prophecy for something to come, or just defending domain rights?

So do I but I worry they will turn it into an MMORPG like WoW. I'm hoping they do it as a multi level game, where you can play it offline, play online the way you could with D2, and up it to an MMORPG. I don't like MMORPG's because I've already payed for the software, I don't want to pay a monthly fee.

That's weird. Diablo3.com redirects to http://www.diablofans.com/ .

Doesn't look like they've bought it to me...?

No way to know, Blizzard is notoriously closed lipped regarding up-and-coming games - and we probably won't hear anything for a couple of years.

Read the page, they owners of the site that Blizzard bought are allowed to redirect to their new site until Blizzard is finished with the new site.

I realize that, that is why it is so interesting, its been hinted at for a long time, this is the biggest move to hint at the possibility of a new game. I don't have a link right now, but the forum I read this on showed that Blizzard was hiring developers for a top secret program.

I don't think Blizz are going to move on Diablo just yet - SC2 is their current baby.

They're also currently working on the next expansion for World of Warcraft, so I wouldn't get your hopes up too terribly much.

Diablo 3 is long due if you ask me! And if they turn it into a MMO so much the better. A lot of MMO fans will disagree with me, but i think Blizz is ace at making games, and their MMO is proof..seeing my all time favourite game turned into a massive landscape would just thrill me to no end. Unfortunatly, i dont see a lot of materials to cook an mmo type of game. Oh well...just as long as im allowed to go massive sorceress aoe on mobs im happy :giggle:

... and here the rumor mill around me insinuated that Hellgate London was going to be a replacement...

I conccur... It'd be horrible to incorporate it as a full online rpg...

(I just hope it isn't the game that kills my computer lol)
