Perhaps 2 years from now, Blizzard will release a single player version of the game that is completely off-line. Given the mediocre reception of the game, it is not impossible.

From what I've read, that won't be possible without a lot of work, which once the game starts winding down revenue wise, seems unlikely that they'd be willing to put in. As I understand it, the server manages monster AI, loot drops, map data, and a whole host of other shit. None of that is on the player client, so you'd have to code that into the player client if you wanted to allow offline play.

Any Blizzard employees on Blues care to speak to that?
