Diablo 3 Target Release Date Announced

During a recent investor’s conference call, Blizzard’s CEO, Mike Morhaime, stated that Blizzard is targeting a second quarter release date for Diablo 3.

I had predicted back on Jan 5th that the game would get delayed to late Q2 or early Q3, and I’m sticking with that. I’m morphing into a June 25 – July 5th specific release date, since that is normally the window when Blizzard releases games once they miss their early first quarter window, which goes up to Jan 16th.

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.Hopefully, we’ll get the official date by the end of this month, since it seems they’re getting ready to announce it, but then again we’ve heard that before as well.

Soon™. When it’s ready.™


  1. Good news for me, since I expect Torchlight 2 to be released before Diablo 3. I’m looking forward to TL2, and I don’t care so much about D3.
