Jay Wilson has been quiet popular lately with dozens of Diablo III Interviews. VideoGamer got him this time to talk about the classes. Everyone knows new classes will be revealed at BlizzCon 2008 on October 10th, but Jay acknowledges fans will hate Blizzard for one class that resembles an old one. Some fans have always an excuse to hate something without even getting to see the full scope anyways.
On other note, he promises that in future expansions they will consider bringing back some of the old classes. Wait … did you hear that? … Diablo III expansions? in plural? I wouldn’t discard that possibility.
Who wouldn’t want two or more expansions for Diablo III?
VideoGamer.com: Have you copped a lot of flack over this?
JW: Yeah and we will! All the barbarian players are delighted and all the necromancers hate us. I understand, I don’t begrudge them that. I would hate me too! But what I would say is that when we announce the next class, which is quite similar to a previous class, then all those players will hate us too. You can’t make everybody happy, but I think when the game finally come out players will find there’s a good class for them, one they will love as much as the ones that came before. And if they don’t, I absolutely promise that in the expansions we’ll consider bringing back old classes. We just don’t want to do it with the first release. We want to establish our identity.
