David Craddock, author of the unofficial Blizzard biography has let loose details about Blizzard prototyping a Diablo set in space called ‘Starblo’.
Speaking to ShackNews, Craddock said Blizzard split its team up into two after Diablo 2 was done, one focusing on Diablo team and a “‘We love Diablo but it’s time to try something new’ team.”
“The project earned the nickname Starblo for its mix of a space setting and the action-RPG formula that made Diablo so successful,” he said.
“Like Diablo 2, Starblo would take place over several acts, but rather than journey across a single world, players would board their customizable spaceship and travel to new planets, killing and looting the space creatures they found there.”
According to Craddock, “By the time Dave Brevik and the Schaefers left Blizzard North in summer 2003, the Starblo team had produced a few playable builds of the game, but still hadn’t come up with a proper name.”
