It seems that Best Buy have sent out emails tonight to all Diablo 3 pre-order customers with what can only be considered a radical shift in their release events schedule. We have had a few emails in with screenshots of the email and as you’ll see Best Buy are now telling their customers that Diablo 3 will ship out on 31 December 2012.
Yes you read that right, the end of this year. Retailers are obviously completely confused as to what to tell customers right now. One minute there are launch events planned for a few weeks time and the next they are telling customers you’ll have to wait until the end of the year. As with the release date they had earlier this week dismiss this one. Even the most pessimistic reader won’t ponder the possibility of us having to wait that long! And anyway, the world apparently ends on the 21st December 2012 so it’s all futile anyway.
Many thanks to xarutek and Matt for the update.
