Nevertheless, it is rumored that the release of Torchlight will force Diablo 3 to be remade. Blizzard has stopped announcing any new information about Diablo 3, which is within our expectation. A game with most content of Diablo 3 has been open to the public, certainly, it has a bad influence on the popularity and anticipation of Diablo 3 in any way. Blizzard no longer publishes any news about Diablo 3, it seems that Blizzard has made up its mind to reform the game system thoroughly. This way can also relieve Blizzard's awkward situation in the face of Torchlight.

Do you still remember that the launch of NOX caused a notable impact on Diablo 2 in 2000? Partly similar elements of NOX made sensitive Blizzard modify Diablo 2 for more than one year. How long will it take to remake Diablo 3 completely when Blizzard confronts the clone Torchlight? Maybe players can only have a chance to experience Diablo 3 after 2014. Suppose you marry now, maybe you can play it with your child when it's officially published. lol...
