There's still a chance we'll get to play the highly anticipated third Diablo game in 2011. Whenever we do get Blizzard's next big action role-playing game, it will look like a very different beast from the canned 2005 version.
The Diablo III we'll eventually play on our PCs will be much more colourful - too vibrant for some - than the version Blizzard North was making half a decade ago. The battle plan back then was to take the hack and slash action to from Hell to Heaven, based on previously circulated rumours and artwork posted online by former Blizzard North employees.
As one can see in the Diablo III screen shots in the gallery above, Blizzard North's vision for the third entry hewed closely to the previous entry as the series made the jump from 2D to 3D graphics.
