Mike Mohaime stated the following about Diablo 3 release:
After release of Starcraft 2 and Wow Cataclysm, Diablo 3 is just around the corner.
That means that Diablo 3 could come out spring of 2011.
This is a clear indication that Blizzard is not afraid of holding back Diablo 3 and starcraft 2 release.
Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 & World of Warcraft will add values to other games, so people will play all Blizzard games.
This is also a strategy shift by Blizzard and with the Starcraft 2 beta around the corner, there is no reason to hold back Diablo 3 now.
The reason behind Blizzard’s mess that they was afraid of losing subscibers from World of Warcraft. There strategy has changed around now.
