Diablo III Details?

A since-deleted post on 4chan (mirrored here) offers purported details on Diablo III, posted by someone who claims to have been an internal tester at Blizzard before being fired. A post on Lo-Ping puts the /v/ chat in a more easily read format, allowing one to read all the information provided, while skipping most of the seemingly endless accusations that this is all a big troll. It certainly may all be made up, but if it isn't, obviously spoilers abound. Thanks Gamer's Hell.

Bobby Kotick is CEO and president of the parent company,

Correct.

and thus he has complete control over Blizzard.

Incorrect. Blizzard operates with it's own corporate leadership and control.

That's not really how subsidiaries work. Ultimately, Blizzard is beholden to the same shareholders and Kotick is the man in the General's spot, not anyone from Blizzard. Sure, they may have autonomy to a degree, but that doesn't mean they operate with impunity. Mythic and Verant were autonomous, too.
