Blizzard today announced during its 2008 Blizzard Entertainment WorldWide Invitational (WWI) event in France that it is working on the long-rumored Diablo III. The RPG action fantasy game will be released for both the PC and Mac simultaneously, but there is no release date schedule, system requirements or pricing information announced for Diablo III.
Blizzard has launched the Diablo III web site with much game details including official trailer and gameplay video. Diablo III’s P2P gameplay will be available online via Battle.net, which is Blizzard’s free online service that launched with the original Diablo in 1997. This confirmed that Diablo III is not following a subscription fee model as with World of Warcraft.
Blizzard sold more than 20 million copies of both Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction since their release in 2000 and 2001.
