"How long has Diablo III been in development, and when was the project first conceived?"

Leonard Boyarsky: "I donít know this information firsthand, but yesterday I was in a press conference with Mike Morhaime, and he said it really got going in 2004. [Before,] it had been kicked around. Iíve only been with Blizzard for two and a half years Ė so thatís how long itís been going for me. Itís been around a while."

True enough, but I don't think time in development means all that much in this case. I remember Blizzard talking about going back and forth from 2D to 3D for ages with D2, for instance. Today, they're in a position where they can develop for as long as they want, without needing to worry much about when to release.

However, none of us know anything for sure, and I'd rather you were right. I could use a D3 right about now
