RPS: What if people donít want to commit to a community? What if they just want to play the game?
Martens: We didnít make that game. Thatís the straight-up answer. We did not make that game, and weíre not going to turn this game into that game. We have the online mode because we learned a lot over the many, many years that Diablo II was in development.
That was the wrong choice to allow people to play offline, and we still stand by that. And we think Internet access is widespread. If someone has no Internet access, then yeah, Diablo III is not the game for them.
