Blizzard's Diablo III Officially Confirmed

Last week Blizzard Entertainment officially confirmed the third entry in their highly successful Diablo series during the company's Worldwide Invitational.

Blizzard has also launched an official website for the game which not only includes the announcement, but also shows off 60 pieces of artwork as well as a teaser trailer and nearly 20 minutes of gameplay footage. They've also got the fan forums up and running, which is already a buzz with new questions and speculation.

So far details are limited and there is no set release date, the company is sticking to a "it'll be done when it's done" mantra and refuses to even speculate on a release. The new game will jump us 20yrs into the future following along a similar story line from Diablo II, when Mephisto, Diablo and Baal have been defeated.

The Worldstore, which once shielded the world of Sanctuary from the forces of the High Heavens and the Burning Hell, has been destroyed, and evil thrives once more.

When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram's Cathedral, a comet carrying a dark omen calls upon the heroes of Sanctuary to defend their world against the horrors that have arisen.
