Blizzard Release Plans, SC2 Beta This Year

The BlizzCon broadcast outlines Blizzard's tentative release plans for their upcoming projects. Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime says StarCraft II and the just-announced World of Warcraft: Cataclysm are the two titles Blizzard plans to release next year, so presumably we should not expect the release of Diablo III next year. Also, in spite of the recently announced delay until 2010 for StarCraft II, Morhaime still says they expect the game's beta test to begin this year: "I'm confident the beta will start this year," Morhaime tells host Geoff Keighley. "We don't have a date yet, but that is a focus--we're working on getting the beta ready." Thanks Shacknews.

Diablo isnít about the graphics. Itís basically Nethack with 16 colors and a primitive UI. The hook is in the gameplay. Some of the best times I ever had with games were playing D1/D2 with some friends.

Yeah it was pure awesome watching people do Baal, Mephisto, et al "runs" for years of their lives. They'd get bored after a few months, a patch would arrive and recharge them for another 6 months or so.

Then WoW came and proved that there were even lower lows.
