Blizzard announces Diablo III

Quite possibly the most requested sequel behind the recently announced StarCraft II, Blizzard has finally gone and announced the long awaited hack and slash rope playing game, Diablo III. That's almost exactly 8 years since Diablo II was released on June 29, 2000! I have embedded the trailer and gameplay video below, though both are also available at the website linked at the end of this post.

So with World of Warcraft as reigning king of MMOs, with and expansion on the way; and StarCraft and Diablo finally getting sequels, it looks like Blizzard is either gonna have to make something new, or release Lost Vikings III and Warcraft IV, as nothing else can be asked of them.
