Blizzard has reiterated that Diablo III does not currently have a release date, and that the RPG will not be out any time soon.
“[ Diablo III] is not going to be out next year,” said bossman Rob Pardo told Techland. “We always announce all of our games too early. We realize that and go, ‘You know what? Next time we’re not going to do that.’ And then we always fail at that.
“We’ve been wrong (on release dates) for as long as I can remember. So that’s why don’t do release dates anymore.”
Expect it sometime after the Rapture, then.

It’s not every day you get flown to Blizzard’s HQ in Irvine, CA, to see StarCraft II. And it’s not every day you’re given a chance to grill Rob Pardo, the firm’s executive VP of game design, on the most anticipated strategy sequel of all time, Blizzard’s development strategy, the new Battle.net, Natal, and an embarrassing amount more.
July 21 wasn’t “every day,” evidently.

Blizzard design boss Rob Pardo has said that should the company ever decide to enter the console space, he’d be looking at the same sort of leadership Blizzard games have achieved on PC.
” If we wanted to make a good console game, I’d hope that we could dominate there too,” he said, speaking at Blizzard’s HQ in California last month.
Don’t hold your breath though, console fans.
“No, not today,” Pardo said when asked if Blizzard has plans to create console games.
“It’s something that we always think about, because we’re all big console gamers.
“I play tons of console games, and I would love to make a console game, but we really try to come up with games that we really want to make, and then try to find out if it makes any sense to put them on console versus PC.”
And it clearly doesn’t.
