Happy 15th Anniversary Diablo

Posted 30 Nov 2011 by

An absolute classic

Today the Diablo series celebrates its 15th anniversary. On November 30th 1996, Blizzard North unleashed DiabloWikiDiablo I  on the world. Yes it has been that long. A sequel and an expansion later we are now looking forward to the third game in one of the most popular game franchises ever created.

It was not long after the release of the first Diablo that Elly created this very website. Starting out as a site to help customers in a gaming cafe, it was never intended to go online, but soon enough you guys found the site and it spawned into what we see today. All of us working on the site have been involved from the very first game so we are incredibly pleased that the series continues 15 years later thanks to the creative talent at Blizzard.

Many congratulations to Blizzard, the current development team and also to all the developers from DiabloWikiBlizzard North that have since moved on. Join us by raising your glasses to salute what is one of the finest game franchises ever created as we all look forward to many more years of Diablo gaming.
