BlizzCon 09: Release date for Diablo III yet to be announced, says Blizzard

Saturday, 22nd August 2009 19:08 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Yesterday, there were two different time-frames -of sorts- revealed for Diablo III.

We contacted Blizzard to get some clarification on this, and were told by a company spokesperson that: “We haven’t announced a release date for Diablo III.”

It all started when Geoff Keighely tweeted that StarCraft II and the new WoW expansion, Cataclysm were to be the only Blizzard titles coming in 2010.

Then, Ripten reported that it had overheard Blizzard bossman Mike Mohaime telling DirecTV that the game was to be released this year.

While Blizzard’s response does not really clarify when between now and 2011 we can expect the game, at least we know that more than likely it will not happen this year — unless Baboon Demons sprout wings and start flying.

    Hi I just notice that ASDA are advertising a release date for Diablo 3 as 27 November 2009…. you can preorder on their website :

    I must say it cheaper to preorder from, but they dont give a release date… I ordered from figuring they are most likely to get the stock in first..

    Interesting though… surely a company as big as ASDA would not just pluck a release date out of thin air? They must have put in an order with Blizzard I would assume??
