Diablo III Development is Official

Diablo IIIWhat was once rumor is now official: Diablo III is officially in development at Blizzard, but "it's too early to estimate Diablo III's release date."
As with the last installment in the franchise, Diablo III is being developed for the PC and Mac. The official Diablo III site has detailed information, but Diablo III will once again be an action-rich role-playing game with five distinct classes ("such as barbarian or witch doctor"). The game will sport 3D environments and Havok-powered physics, and will still include random events.

As for the story: "The game takes place on Sanctuary, a world of dark fantasy. Unbeknownst to most of its inhabitants, Sanctuary was saved some twenty years ago from the demonic forces of the underworld by a few brave and powerful heroes. Most of those warriors who directly faced the armies of the Burning Hells – and were fortunate enough to survive – went mad from their experiences. And most of the others have buried their haunted memories and pushed the horrors from their thoughts. In Diablo III, players will return to Sanctuary to confront evil in its many forms once again."
