Diablo Gets A 15th Anniversary Website...


And still no Diablo III on my hard-drive! It's close though, so close we can smell it. It smells of 200 developers having sat in the same office for five years. Mmm, unmistakable. Anyway, there are interviews with Jay Wilson and Chris Metzen (as well as an "extended retrospective") on Blizzard's 15th anniversary site, and Wilson says that Blizzard are "almost done" with the third game. So that's exciting. I would like to be "almost starting" to play it, now please.

More importantly, why was the first Diablo released on December 31st 1996? That seems like an odd release date. Whatever, it was still fifteen years ago, and whether or not you appreciate Diablo's dungeon-crawler mechanics, it's hard to deny the influence it has had on the past decade-point-five years of PC games. Also, if you are me, it makes you feel old. Formidably old, like a crotchety old wizard, or something. Ok.
