    Plot:
    Twenty years have passed since the destruction of the Worldstone. The world of Sanctuary was prepared for an invasion from the Burning Hells. However, the invasion never happened, prompting Deckard Cain to seek information as to why.​


    Classes:
    Demon Hunter- The Demon Hunter is a new class being introduced in Diablo 3. With what gameplay Blizzard have shown of it, the Demon Hunter looks to be a combination of the Assassin; with its ability to throw grenades, and the Amazon in its usage of crossbows. However the class looks as if it is going to dual-wield crossbows which is a completely original concept in reference to prior games.

    Monk- The Monk is another melee based class. It appears to rely entirely, or at least mostly on its fists and fist based weapons similar to the weapon choice of the Assassin in the previous game. Some attacks will have a limited range, so not all combat occurs at very close range. He also possess holy-light abilities with allow for healing.

    Wizard- The Wizard is the run-of-the-mill magic user in Diablo III combining the brilliance of the Sorceress and the cunning and stealth of the Assassin. Only the female Wizard was playable in Blizzcon, the male Wizard's gameplay was revealed a few days later. Jay Wilson had stated that fans will "hate" one of the new classes for the game, courtesy of it resembling a former one. But, seeing the attitude of the new Wizard compared to its brooding predecessors and the powerful skills it wields, fans have taken a certain liking for the Wizard.

    Barbarian- The Barbarian returns from Diablo 2 as the straightforward brute-force fighter, with some new abilities as well. The Barbarian's mechanics seem very similar to those in the last game, with most moves being very close range, with exceptions such as the Leap ability.

    Witch Doctor- The Witch Doctor will be a new class. They can summon undead monsters, but without the need of dead bodies like the Necromancer. They appear to be a mixture of the Necromancer, the Druid and an alchemist, with some skills also reminiscent of the Warlock from World of Warcraft, such as Terrify and Mass Confusion. While these are old Necromancer skills, they are much more potent now.​

    Diablo III's release date is somewhere between now and never. Usually much closer to never when it involves Blizzard.

    If it comes this year, I'd expect it to launch closer to November since there's not a WoW expansion brewing.

    As much as I want to believe it, there's just too much proof pointing towards Q4 2011.

    Nice.

    /crosses fingers. Along with a release date sometime this year, here's to hoping that the Witch Doctor is a decent enough pet class. Dev's have said not to expect Necromancer-level pets, but maybe it won't be so bad.

    When I look at release dates for anything from Blizzard, I always refer to this.

    Copyright 2004-2011 Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. All rights reserved. "Soon" does not imply any particular date, time, decade, century, or millennia in the past, present, and certainly not the future. "Soon" shall make no contract or warranty between Blizzard Entertainment and the end user. "Soon" will arrive some day, Blizzard does guarantee that "soon" will be here before the end of time. Maybe. Do not make plans based on "soon" as Blizzard will not be liable for any misuse, use, or even casual glancing at "soon."

    I wouldn't look to D3 to replace MMOs. If it's anything like the other 2 games, it will be a grindfest that you can run through as much as you want. Diablo has always been a repetitive game, just what it is.

    looks like it true nothing this year to busy counting the money from WoW

    Blizzard Entertainment has outlined its release schedule for the coming two years.

    Activision COO Thomas Tippl told investors that the firm's current "outlook" does not include a Blizzard release this year, in which case players can expect a "minimum" of two games in 2012.

    "Because Blizzard Entertainment has not yet confirmed the launch date for its next global release, our outlook at this time does not include a new game from Blizzard in 2011," he said, according to Joystiq.

    "Should we not release a major title from Blizzard this year, we would expect for planning purposes to launch a minimum of two Blizzard titles in 2012."

    The two titles are suggested to be Starcraft II: Heart Of The Swarm and Diablo III.

    Blizzard president Mike Morhaime added that details of the Diablo III beta will be revealed at the company's next investors meeting in three months' time.

    hardly news but Blizzard is investigating the possibility of Diablo III on current-gen consoles.

    source

    Gamasutra reported this in November.
