Good news for gamers this week, as Mike Morhaime, co-founder and President of Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed development of upcoming versions of Diablo and StarCraft are advancing fast.

Morhaime was speaking during Activision Blizzard’s first quarter earnings call last week, where confirmed that Diablo III StarCraft II to be "heavily" into development.

He also let gamers know that Diablo’s 1 and 2 have accounted for 18.5 million sales so far between them, but remained cagey on the release date for either title, saying: "We do not currently have a release date for either StarCraft II or Diablo III, but we can say that they are heavily in development on both games and we are committed to making sure these games meet and exceed the high expectations of our players."

 

Good news for gamers on the Mac has become more frequent of late, though Id Software’s John Carmack recently explained, "The truth is Steve Jobs doesn’t care about games," Carmack told Eurogamer. "This is going to be one of those things that I say something in an interview and it gets fed back to him and I’m on his shithead list for a while on that, until he needs me to do something else there. But I think that that’s my general opinion. He’s not a gamer."
