Diablo series founder Max Schaefer speaking from Gamescom, August 21, 2011.

    “Diablo 3 won’t be coming in 2011, but in the first quarter of 2012 at the earliest”.

    Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime this morning:

    …this week we pulled together people from all of the teams involved with the game to decide whether we felt it would be ready before the end of December, and we grudgingly came to the conclusion that it would not.

    Schaefer’s Hammer returns as a unique item in Diablo III.

    From one of our forum threads about Max’s release date prediction, comment by SnifSnif:

    what if the one random stat on the schaefers hammer was “slow you opponents production speed by 3-6 months”

    That’s the comment of the month, even though he misspelled “years.” And yes, I just posted this since it made me laugh. And it’s a weekend.
