Diablo 3 on its way?
Game News - posted by DarkUnderlord on Mon 5 May 2008, 16:58:12Tags: Blizzard Entertainment; Diablo III
Now it's time for unfounded fan speculation. Although this is a little more serious than most (in that it's actually true). It seems the fansite that used to be at diablo3.com has moved to diablofans.com. Why?
Well, there's no point in beating around the bush any longer, so let's get right down to it. A few months ago we were contacted by Blizzard in regards to the Diablo3.com domain name. While they appreciate all the work that's been put into running this big Diablo fan community over the years, they still want the domain name. Hmm, I wonder why?
Blizzard is actually being really cool about it, giving us all the time we need to make it a smooth transition before we hand the old domain over to them.
Some gaming news sites are reporting that Blizzard "purchased" the diablo3.com domain from me. This is not the case. As I stated in the above post, if it was my intention to make a profit off of the domain, I could've sold it years ago, but I didn't. When Blizzard spoke to me about their interest in the domain, I was happy to give it to them since they had no problems with us moving the site to diablofans.com and will now be working more closely with us in the future. So yeah, I just wanted to clear that up... there is no monetary exchange taking place, I'm simply giving Blizzard the diablo3 domain.
Cue wild speculation. Hmmm... We need a crazy speculation news type...
