In a special "Worldwide Invitational wrap-up edition" of Blizzard's online podcast, Jay Wilson reveals Diablo 3's Act One getting refined.
He says that most of the art team has begun working on the second act as the whole team has become "really production focused", churning out loot and such.
They talk a little on what it was like to deliver the huge news that Diablo was on his way back to gamers. As Bashiok (Community Manager for Diablo III) recalls, "I think I was in the front row with my head in my hands just you know waiting for the reaction to the announcement. There was just an overwhelming explosion of noise behind me when everybody was just cheering and going off."
On where the development is for Diablo 3 at the moment: "Well the team's pretty big so we've got them split up on different things," says Wilson.
"Most of the art team is actually working on the second act of the game, because a lot of the team is really production focused now and we're generating content for the most part a lot of the tech and underlying engine is really solid."
"Most of the design team is still on Act 1 because we're refining and improving the quests and flow and some of the big game systems that we haven't really announced yet. We kind of dove back into content production fairly quickly," he continued.
