Did this die?

Did this game die or something? No news at all? Or is this Blizzard's regular routine?

This is Blizzard's regular routine. You'll hear more about this game next year, probably.

They want to spaceout the hype train.  This year is Starcraft 2, next year is Diablo 3.

Yeah Blizzard pretty much does whatever they want and people don't complain. (In regards to release dates)

Wait till next summer to hear more, kind of like the media attention Starcraft 2 is getting now.

From what I've heard, Blizzard has made comments before saying that Diablo III will come out after StarCraft 2. Whether that means the first installment of SC2 or all three, who knows? But as previous posters have said, yes, they're just giving their products some space, which I think is a pretty good plan, seeing as how one publisher or developer releasing too much at once can be hectic.

Blizzcon is coming up you'll hear some crazy stuff there.

Like others have said, they are most likely waiting until Blizzcon. I understand why but it does kind of suck that they hold out in favor of their own con and skip any other gaming conventions now.

Oh well.

Diablo III is planned to release 2010 along with the now delayed SC2. Usually they only release one major title a year for maximum profit, but Diablo III won't be delayed just because SC3 was delayed

Let me say something that you can consider fact as far as i'm concerned : 
 
There's no way this is coming before 2011. So just forget about it for now.

Blizzard do whatever they want, and still have retarded amounts of ppl going nuts over every single thing they put out

Waaaaaaaaaahahahaha. Did a Diablo game die in production. Oh lord. Best thread I've read all morning. Don't worry. Once Starcraft blows over we'll get some sweet, sweet loot-whore-style news.

It's still far from release, so starting the hype now would not be smart.
