The release date of Diablo III is unknown to us, but with Starcraft 2 confirmed for 2009 at the earliest, I think even to say Fall 2009 for Diablo III is optimistic, if not wildly optimistic. Sacred II, OTOH, will come out much sooner, and it's effective sales run will long be over before D3 bursts on the scene.

While perhaps the egos of the devs might be bruised a bit by the knowledge that thousands of people are buying their game because those people are in reality excited for a different game an Sacred II is just a quick fix, that bruising will be more than offset with the fuller wallets that will accompany all those extra sales.

I assure you, they are pleased at the buzz.
