There's still no release date, but here's the latest from Blizzard.
Back at Gamescom 2010, a major videogame event in Cologne, Germany, Blizzard held a press conference to break some news about Diablo III. No, it wasn't a release date. It was instead a crafting system, called the Artisan system, which game director Jay Wilson detailed during the hour long session. While Blizzard likely won't be making public any more bits of information about its anticipated action-role-playing game until Blizzcon this year, which takes place at the end of October, we were able to sit down with Wilson to get some additional details about how development was going.
