By according to the developer, the unreleased second expansion for Diablo II, he was engaged in six to twelve months before leaving Blizzard North and before patch 1.10: “Including therefore [аддон] never did “.

Around the same time, Brevik and his team were working on their version of Diablo III, which was supposed to combine elements of action RPG and massively multiplayer online games.

“I think it would be very interesting. We then used the structural ideas for it in Marvel Heroes. It was a hybrid of ARPG and MMO. MMO in terms of “a lot of people playing at the same time”, not [World of Warcraft]», — shared Breivik.
