Blizzard to Korea: Diablo III "Is Nearing"

This trailer created by Blizzard for Korean gamers from a few days ago features Jay Wilson offering an optimistic outlook on when to expect Diablo III, their action/RPG sequel, saying "the release date is nearing." This was posted the same day they announced plans to change how many of the game's systems work, and the day before the game's senior producer left the company, so it's not clear how these different factors play into each other, if they do at all. Here's a fuller quote for context: "2012 will be a great year because the Diablo series will finally make its long-awaited return. We are currently working hard to deliver Diablo III and ensure it lives up to your expectations. We plan to deliver nothing less than an epic gaming experience. The release date is nearing, and we eagerly await your return as the heroes of sanctuary." Thanks Blizzplanet.

Again, those are all gameplay balance issues.

What exactly would you consider core gameplay changes then? Blizzard themselves refer to them as core gameplay changes. Changing class skills, runes, stats, tradeskill recipe, itemization, among other things. These are some major adjustments to the game. Changing the engine or the point and click nature of the game or even the UI have nothing to do with making sweeping changes to the core gameplay.

and it's likely to be extra months, rather than weeks. But it's not going to be years, as some people are implying.

Which is exactly what I said. I still expect the game in 2012.
