It is offical, Blizzard is developing Diablo III for the PC.   http://www.blizzard.com
They have been teasing about it all week with splash screens etc.  Had the world guessing their new game, but today at WWI 2008 they officially announced it.  From the game play video, which will blow you away, it appears they have alot done.

Me2. Looks cool as hell. Watching the changes they made with respect to graphics and gameplay looks good. Curious how they retooled the other three class: mage, amazon, and warrior.

I dunno from the game play video it looks like they already have a lot done... We all might just be surprised how quickly it does come out.  I know there was screens and not sure but I think even game play footage when Star Craft 2 was announced but the graphics looked not much different than Star Craft 1 where the graphics and game play on Diablo 3 is much much more improved over Diablo 2.  So it definitely looks like they are pretty far into development.  I do not expect a 2008 release but maybe June 29, 2009.

I give Blizzard props for being able to keep this underwraps for so long (other than a few rumors here and there).

I'm gonna say June 29, 2009.  But only because June 29th is when D1 and d2 came out.  If not the June 29, 2010.

*** Edit to say Diablo 1 came out in Jan, 97 not June, but D2 was June 29, 2000 and D2: LOD was June 29, 2001.  So I am still thinking they would stay the course and shoot for a June 29 date.

Diablo 1 was Jan 97, Diabo 2 was June 29th 2000.

Thinking that Dec 09 the best shot, if not then probably summer 2010.   Course they will also make sure not to release SC 2 or Lich King anytime near the other to maximize sales so who knows but yeah I am sure we got a min of a year wait on D3,  I think they will get released Lich King, SC2, D3 in that order.

I found confirmation that it has been in development for awhile now.  I am watching the developers Q&A and they answered that it has been in development now for 4 years so yes it is already a lot done.  So I am still thinking June 29, 2009 if not sooner.

Here is the Q&A video: http://www.incgamers.com/Videos/42/Diablo-3-Developer-Panel

100% yes.  I loved Diablo 2 and it had a lasting group of players.  I have a system that should run it, so I should be good to go.  Would love to see it hit by Christmas 2008, but I bet it will not be out until christmas 2009.

The Q&A said there will be several classes and both male and female for each class instead of for example the sorc being female only.
