Release dates are tied?

Diablo III: Diablo III’s Release Will Precede StarCraft 2’s

Kotaku reports that Blizzard’s Starcraft 2 release and Diablo 3 release dates are rumored to be tied together. This means Blizzard will not release Starcraft until Diablo is ready to ship.

This begs the question, why? If that’s the case then I don’t think we can expect Starcraft to be a stocking stuffer this holiday season.

That really fooled me


Apparently Blizzard’s enigmatic teaser really was Diablo III. Which actually makes sense now because Starcraft II is poised to come out this year and another WoW expansion so it only makes sense that Diablo would be the next franchise getting a new chapter.

I didn’t play the first game and I spent my vacation in Australia playing the second one. I think that I will enjoy playing this one as well. PC gaming isn’t that dead. It just belongs to Valve and Blizzard.

Trailers, gameplay and screens are over at Blizzard.com.

What does this look to you?


Blizzard: Blizzard Splashwatch Day Five – Death Knights, Protoss, And Purple Penguins

Over in Kotaku.com, it could either be a Protoss (Starcraft) or a Warcraft Death Knight. What could it be? Part of enigma included this even more enigmatic purple penguin.

Now I’m confused. Over the past week it had been speculated that it could be Diablo III. But hopes were quickly dashed as of today when the image now looks more dark knighty protossy instead of the big red diablo. So what is going on?

Could this just only be the hype of the final announcement when Starcraft II will hit store shelves? Another Warcraft game either as an expansion to the MMO or Warcraft IV? I think it will reveal a Starcraft MMO other than the Starcraft RTS coming out later this year.

Either way we’ll know what this all means pretty soon. Anyone going to Blizzcon 2008?
