Diablo developer Blizzard seems to be eyeing up even more additions to the long running franchise, or so they hint in their annual fiscal report.

Right now though they've got their Blizz hands full with five major games under development, such as StarCraft II and Diablo III.

The others in the pipeline from team Blizz are World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, an untitled next-gen MMO and an all-new IP game which has been unofficially confirmed to have used the World of Warcraft engine for test purposes, reports IncGamers.

"Blizzard is currently developing new games, including a new expansion pack to the World of Warcraft franchise , Cataclysm , StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, which will be released with the new and improved Battle.net," reads the Form 10-K Annual Report.

They also mention sequels "to the Diablo franchise," report IncGamers.

Diablo III has been a long demand from fans of Blizzard, and slowly more and more has been revealed by the development team. Frankly it can't come soon enough with a release in 2011 cast into doubt - ouch.

StarCraft II is currently in closed beta and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm releases later this year, practically rebuilding the original two lands for the stellar MMO. Are you ravenous for some new Diablo?

Surely you can only cleanse the Den of Evil so many times...?

Get SCII and DII out to the market, then I'll be happy to hear about future projects. At this rate of release (or non-release) I may be a very old man before Diablo IV arrives.
Will play it in my nursing home.

If anyone's curious, I just happened upon a blog that's giving out free Diablo 3 keys.

They said they are doing it as a preventative measure against the rampant invite selling and scamming happening with the Starcraft 2 beta.

I just signed up without entering any personal information or paying any kind of money.

For those who want to try it out, the URL is here, I've shortened it: diablo3betakeys.blogspot.com

Hope you guys can join me and get some keys.

Guys, I can no longer delete the Post, as I've removed this person from SI. Please do not use the link he posted. We don't need this sort of nonsense...let Steam have them.
