Before anyone says it's shopped, the report does say Joystick contacted the branch it was supposedly taken in who confirmed it. But whether or not it's right, remains to be seen. I hope so, I want it now!!

Honestly wouldn't surprise me if it's true.

The date doesn't surprise me. It seems like a sensible, realistic release for the game. But how it has been unveiled surprises me and makes me think it's wrong.

The fact you can't pre order the special ed from bliz says its wrong to me.

I'd more likely believe it if it was march 1st

Well...I can see a $99 Special Edition for it on Best Buys website. Cover and all.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Diablo+I...0III&lp=4&cp=1

But....February is misspelled on the board... :/

[EDIT] Sad trombone. The sign was made inhouse at that BestBuy and has been taken down. It was probably made in regards to the 2/1/2012 date on BB's website.

If the game hasnt gone gold then its not being released. You always hear about it and then its in stores 4 weeks later. So yeah, it was never true.

If you were browsing around the gaming Internet over the weekend then you probably saw some talk about Diablo 3. A seemingly official display touting a February 1 release and midnight sale for the game popped up in a Minnesota Best Buy long enough for a tipster to snap a photo and send it in to Joystiq.
It really looked official, that display. There was a countdown clock and everything. Sure, February was spelled as "Feburary," but mistakes happen. Mistakes like a store making an assumption about a release date. Blizzard community manager Micah "Bashiok" Whipple posted on Twitter that "Diablo 3 does not have a release date." It doesn't get much more official than a statement from the game's developer.
Take comfort in the fact that Diablo 3 really is coming. It'll even be here relatively soon, as early 2012 is still the expected release window. Just make sure the date you're getting excited about next time is a Blizzard-confirmed one.

Their approach to the gaming industry sounds a lot like how GameStop is. Both want to make decisions that aren't their responsibility.

Yeah we've known about console version for ages. This is one of the few times when a PC developer announces a console game that I can be relatively assured it's not just going to be watered down for the consoles.

And on that note, when is Torchlight 2 coming out? It'll tide me over till this finally releases.

All it says is 2012.

If they don't get it out before Diablo 3, it's going to suffer. It either has to be before Diablo, and get lots of sales from people waiting for it, or has to be really after it. If they release near eachother, Torchlight is going down. I love Relic and I'll be getting it, I love the mod tools of it, but I hope they don't ride on the success of the first game and be arrogant enough to take on Blizzard.
