    Update: On December 19, 2013 Blizzard announced the release date as March 25, 2014.

    With D3X coming up in the not-too-distant future, it's time to resurrect and repupose our mega D3 release date pool thread. I'll just copy the format and into from MadMantis' fine work on that thread.

    Rules
    1. One Vote per account.
    2. Make a post with your date in this thread. Motivation is optional.
    3. Date format must be (DD/MM/YY).
    4. Pool will last until an official Blizzard announcement is made concerning a release date.
    5. Winning date will be determined by the actual US release date.
    6. If multiple accounts have chosen the same release date, the winner will be the one who first chose it. The runner up will be the second person etc.

    Winner will win something. Prize TBD. (We get a good amount of swag from Blizzard these days.)

    Release Pool (sorted by Predicted Date)
    Code:
    [B]Account[/B]            Release Date                   Date Added

    • Cataclysm: December 2010 (25 months later)
    • Mists of Pandaland: September 2012 (22 months later)

    Starcraft 2: July 2010

    Diablo 3: May 2012
    • D3X: ??? (24 months would be May 2014. 30 months would be November 2014.)
    • D3Y: ???

    Re: Smile Somewhat Official Diablo 3 Expansion Release Date Pool

    Well since Blizzard is just getting around to announcing it, I'd say 14 April 2015.

    Are we going by first announced release date or actual release date?

    AFAIK bliz has never announced a release date and failed to hit it. They never give an actual date until they're 100% sure they can hit it, barring world wide catastrophe. They've announced release windows and missed them, like Q4 2011, and then Q1 2012 for D3, but not actual dates.

    Really hoping for next May on or about the 2nd anniversary, but thinking more along the lines of pre-xmas 2014:

    Guessing a release date of an unannounced Blizzard product? That's like a double whammy :)


    Sept 2015 -- You heard it here first folks.

    I have a tried and true system for accurately predicting Blizzard release dates. It is fool proof.

    First, pick a "reasonable" release date.
    Second, imagine "worst case scenario" release date.
    Third, add one year to your second date. This is your actual Blizzard date.

    DX3 = December 1st, 2015.
