First Diablo 3 Dev Diary: Release Date, Iteration, Beards
Blizzard’s “Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise” mini-site initiative has seen its first developer diary unlocked. Dating back to February 2011, the video features Game Director Jay Wilson, Art Director Christian Lichtner, and Lead Software Engineer Jason Regier discussing the state of Diablo 3′s development at the time.
Check it out:
Oh, those dreamers — they thought they had entered the final year of development and would have the game out by the end of 2011. This video was light on information — I’m sure we can all rest easy now knowing that Christian doesn’t like having a beard — but I do look forward to the future diaries that will hopefully reveal what setbacks resulted in delaying the game’s release date.
But hey — at least they were having a good time, and I think that’s an important part of the magic.
