Diablo III Game Director Jay Wilson took to the Battle.NET forums today to clarify certain statements made by Diablo III Community Manager Bashiok. A few days ago, news spread on the internet echoing Bashiok's post that players "should temper your expectations when it comes to the next installment in the Diablo series."
Jay Wilson wanted to reassure players that D3 is currently in great shape with the latest build being tested in the office. To follow up, in true Blizzard fashion, Wilson did say "you can seriously expect a launch-date announcement from us in the near future." Fortunately, it's not the usual "soon" or "when it's ready," so we might actually be able to believe him this time!
