    I have been waiting forever, and this game has has been in development for 3+ years

    Any hints are accepted, I think most of us want to know.

    I think by the time it comes out all of us will have seen the whole game walkthrough on YouTube. I was amazed it wasn't out for Christmas 2011...

    Funny, Wikipedia says "Development on Diablo III began in 2001"...this has an air of Duke Nukem Forever to it Smiley

    Play DeathSpank instead. Its just like Diablo, but self-aware about how ridiculous it is.

    I don't see why Diablo III should be more than 3-4+ years of development. Maybe 5 tops.

    • 6m to 1y for planning.
    • I say 1 1/2 to 2 years to build a top of the line engine, that has capabilities to scale down to slower systems
    • Then another 1 1/2 to 2 years for polish/content.

    Am I off?

    Content and the story ....   all the artwork and making sure that each quest works fully ... is the quest to hard?  to easy ?  are there places the player gets "stuck" like walls and doors and so on....

    and having quests progress the game to the games storyline.

    so i say add in at least another 1 to 3 years for design and testing of all that stuff plus having to revise the engine sometimes to make some of the quests work or re-do the quest to fis the engine.

    and do not forget the music and sound effects work also.....
