Posted on March 5, 2012, CJ Miozzi Diablo 3 Release Date to Be Announced Tomorrow; May Be April 17 (RUMOR)

UPDATE: With CeBIT 2012 over, this rumor is busted.

Speculation has coupled with official word from Blizzard Game Director Jay Wilson to suggest that an official release date for Diablo 3 may be announced tomorrow at CeBIT 2012 in Hannover, Germany.

Through Twitter, Wilson said on Friday that the “all-important announcement” concerning Diablo 3 was almost imminent:

This is where speculation comes into play. CeBIT 2012, which has been called “the E3 of Europe,” begins tomorrow, and Blizzard will have a strong presence there, showcasing the Diablo 3 beta, which was freshly made available to European players, and StarCraft 2 eSports. Could this be Blizzard’s venue for announcing Diablo 3′s release date?

Two days ago, an Italian website stated that it received information that Diablo 3′s release date would be April 17. This rumor remains unconfirmed, and through Twitter, Jay Wilson weighed in with a boilerplate response:

@BenBrown68 I cannot debunk or confirm.

While I don’t lend much credence to the April 17th rumor, the CeBIT 2012 announcement is at least plausible. We’ll just have to wait and see.
