But of course! Blizzard not doing Diablo3 is like someone saying 'I have a license to print money, but I think I'll pass!'

Do you remember how long it was after they bought starcraft2.com before they announced they were even working on Starcraft 2? Years. I'm not sure how many, but it was lots. So I'm of the impression that this currently means nothing.

I'm surprised they don't already own diablo3.whatever through diablo15.whatever. It's not like they can't afford it and such.

Interesting.  I wonder who the smart person was who was able to get Diablo3.com

I hope it's many years from now as the pressure to buy/build/resume pc gaming is getting to be too much...and I don't want to go back to that life.  I DON'T WANT TO!

Yea but he GAVE the URL to Blizzard.  Of course, the alternative is that they could have taken him to court and stripped it from him...

Depends on what he was doing with it.  If he had site set up with speculation about the game and any news on the subject then he may have been able to keep it.  If he was just squatting on the name hoping to make a buck from Blizzard then they could easily obtain it in court.

Here's some more grist for the rumor mill - PC Gamer is promising a top-secret cover story next month that's "so huge we had to go to [CENSORED] to get it".  People are speculating that the censored bit is "hell", meaning it's Diablo 3.  Of course, their last big exclusive turned out to be nothing, so this is could end up being the same.

I'll guess that they had to go to [CENSORED] for a big exclusive interview with Derek Smart and Uwe Boll on a new movie they're collaborating on.
