Blizzard not developing Diablo or Starcraft sequels ...


Sad but true ..

Quote:
FANS OF BLIZZARD will be disappointed to hear that a company PR coordinator has ruled out any chance that the "unannounced product" that the company has been working on will be a sequel to either Diablo II or Starcraft, long term franchises for which the company is famous and which still attract a strong following toda

But that is just for that "unannounced product", Diablo and Starcraft are too popular for them not to do another sequel, or farm it out to another game company.

they would have to be stupid to not do a Diablo 3/ Starcraft 3... Its easy money for them even if they just sold a box with the cover "Diablo 3" on it... imo they're losing out on ALOT of money.

Starcraft 2 that is.

I'm actually a bit relieved. Now I'll get to see my kids more.

Same thing as the Startrek franchise. Let it cool off a bit, let people get excited, and miss it, and in the meanwhile, release other amazing titles that you can rotate in a similar manner down the road. This should benefit the consumer in the long run, as it'll likely result in a better product (as the result of more creativity going into it).

What would SC-2 be like? An improvement with more races, more gadgets or a total overhual.

I would want to be an improvement so that I don't have to re-learn my skills. During the fevour of SC-1, every kind of strategy was analysed, used pen&paper to calculate the best value spieces. The 'Hunter' map was the greatest for 3vs3 duel. I have outgrown gaming now but still play SC once in a while.

They're making too much off WoW. I'm thinking they may do another MMORPG I'm dying for another MMOFPS like Planetside though.. those were the days.

Looks like an early version of Priston Tale:

http://eng.pristontale.com/

Commercial game but 'free to play' till level 40. I should not that unless you play in 'packs' to 'power level' it'll take a while till you get that high.

It's a bit of a level grind after level 20, but pretty good people playing, and a bit of fun.

Have you seen Lineage?

http://www.lineage.com/

My wife and I used to play on a 'free server' (legitimate) that used the 'open source' of the game. It showed real promise. As someone who tends to play 'dark elf' whenever I can I have to say the character models were brilliant.

Examples (via Google Image Search)
