    Diablo 3 Release Date

    I am not posting this on the front page because it is unconfirmed, and it is a rumor.

    I repeat. Speculation / Rumor.

    One more time. Speculation / Rumor.

    [STRIKE]April 17th-24th[/STRIKE] Date set @ May 15th!

    Rumor / speculation o-meter: 70%.

    A release date announcement is likely to be made next week, as early as Monday.

    The reason that there is a release date "range" is because there is still ongoing network/server tasks being performed in Europe and South Korea, and the timeframes may vary. Though it has only recently reached a stage that the date is just about solid enough to release.

    The date can also be pushed back depending on events relating to the network/server implementations

    Don't ask for sources or where the information came from. You are very welcome to ignore this and go about your day, especially if you are the type of person who will get upset if it ends up being wrong.

    I had to check to see if this post was from last week.

    Are we just throwing darts at a release date now hoping to hit it?

    Well heres hoping for the 17th (gotta go out of town that next weekend! T.T). Thanks for the rumor :).

    My only hold up is that Blizz would do some sort of lead up announcement (I believe anyway..) to the announcement of the release date. Hopefully something pops up here this weekend so we can hope for a Monday announcement

    I think this is pretty realistic, almost 3 weeks ago Jay said release date in the following weeks so... this is pretty realistic to me..

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Date

    Above pretty much sums it up for me. I believe the source, but I don't have enough faith in Blizzard to not push the date back to say that it will definitely come out at that date.

    Don't release games on friday...if they turn out broken the employees are off for the weekend and your weekend is shot because now you have to do real life stuff. Tuesday is good :D. It leaves them enough time to get kinks out, and your game will be rdy for thw eekend :).

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Date

    Sorry bro, but there is no way that the timeframe between release date announcement and release is only 1 month. Blizzard has NEVER done this and I see no reason why they should do it now.

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Date

    How about the fact that D3 is several months overdue? It was expected to come out in 2011, didn't happen. Then it was early 2012, obviously didn't happen. Not to mention Blizzard also has a quota to meet, they've got other games to get out there. There's plenty of good reasons for Blizzard to only have 1 month between release date announcement and actual release date.
