Posted on February 9, 2012, CJ Miozzi Diablo 3′s Release Date Targeted for Q2 2012
During today’s Activision Blizzard Q4 2011 Conference Call, we learned a few tidbits of Blizzard’s plans for 2012. We’ll be seeing no major releases from the giant in March, but Blizzard plans to release at least two titles this year, one of which is Diablo 3.
Presently, Diablo 3′s release date is targeted for the second quarter of 2012, which could mean anytime between April and June. Last we’d heard, Blizzard was on schedule for an “early 2012″ release.
The beta probably won’t end until shortly before D3′s release, and traditionally, Blizzard has tried to announce release dates about two months before release. Keep that two-month buffer in mind — even if a release date was announced today, you probably still won’t be playing until mid-April.
