The first weekend of Diablo 3 Seasons has ended. How did the ladder rushers enjoy the experience? Which fast leveling strategies worked best (and worst), and does the Torment 6 “kill nothing but level fast” cheese need to be fixed? Featuring Wolfpaq, Rankil, N3rdwords, Katniss, and Flux. Following up Friday’s Season-prep show, this is a […]
The Season One leaderboard race quickly turned into a farce (in Softcore, at least) when players exploited the huge exp provided by several bounties that could be completed by undergeared characters on Torment 6. All people had to do was party up (for the greater exp) and keep creating games until they got the proper […]

Diablo 3 Release Date SlipsPosted 9 Feb 2012 by
During the conference call today, Mike Morhaime confirmed that Diablo 3 has been delayed into a Q2 release date which takes it out of the previously stated “early 2012″ date.
We began beta testing for Diablo III last year. After receiving feedback from the community and our internal teams, we have implemented changes to the game which we believe will greatly improve the game experience, and ensure that the final release will live up to our high expectations. We have also been testing the Auction House functionality. This testing will help ensure a smooth roll-out of this feature with the retail launch, so our players can safely and securely trade items with each other.
Given the popularity of the action RPG genre, and the keen interest in Diablo III, we expect this launch to be a big opportunity for Blizzard. We can also confirm that we are targeting a Q2 launch for Diablo III. We expect to announce more details about the release schedule in the coming weeks.
So there you have it, we won’t be seeing the game for a over a month at the earliest which will no doubt disappoint many of you who were expecting some good news this evening. We can only hope that Mike does come back with more details in the coming weeks because we have heard that comment in previous conference calls and then nothing materialises.
We’ll make sure the Diablo III release date page is kept right up to date so you can follow the developments.
