Diablo III Date? New Blizzard Game Revealed?

A post on MMOGameSite.com offers what is purported to be a leaked product slate from Blizzard, though this not confirmed to be genuine, and the leak is attributed to a "gamer, speaking on condition of anonymity," which raises the question of how such a document fell into the wrong hands. Questions about its authenticity aside, the image says the schedule is "as of 04/02/10," and it includes release windows (presumably tentative, even if they are accurate) for a number of projects, including a Q4 2011 release for Diablo III followed by expansions in Q2 2013 and Q4 2014. It also lists a Q4 2011 window for StarCraft II expansion 1 as well as SC2 Phoenix and a Q1 2013 window for the second expansion for the RTS sequel. There are two World of Warcraft expansions listed, one in Q2 2012 and another in Q4 2013, as well as listings for a WoW TCG (Q3 2012) and the WoW movie (Q4 2012). Finally, there is also a listing for an unannounced project called Titan in Q4 2013. Thanks Gamer's Hell.

WoW is only up to its 3rd expansion in 6 years. Everquest has had 17 expansions over a period of 10 years. You can call it milking when WoW gets up to double digits.

Everquest being worse at it doesn't make it ok but fair enough, to each his own. When expansions should or shouldn't stop is subjective anyway. Either way, I was more referring to the fact that it will be an expansion year back to back in 2012 and 2013. In fact thinking about that makes me question the accuracy of the document as they haven't done that yet so far and I'm not even sure they could technically pull it off given that they've split up a lot of resources now onto other projects.

Radical thinking ahead... Titan is an MMO set in fictional ancient Greece with all the fun Greek Gods and such.

That would be neat.

A better MMO version of Titan Quest would actually be kind of neat.

Blizzard is more about quality over quantity. Even if you hate blizzard games, I can say after having played the first 5 or 6 expansions for EQ, and then having played Blizzard's expansions it's not hard to figure out which one has way more polish.

However I really doubt Diablo 3 will ship in April. I'd be surprised if it was even out by late summer.

2 more WoW expansions? Jesus christ, they are really milking that one for all it's worth. 2011 Diablo 3 is fantastic news though!
