No Release Date, “For Some Time.”


We’ve posted previously about the insight into the mind of the casual Diablo fan provided by the comments on Blizzard’s Facebook page, and thanks to a tip from Seeder, we’re going to do it again.

A recent update on the Diablo FB page tried to cross platform their social media, and promote the @Diablo twitter feed (which is infinitely more useful than their FB page, in terms of providing new game info).

Are you a follower of our official Diablo Twitter yet? We post quite a few tidbits about the game and ongoing development. If you’re hip to the Twitter-jive, check it out, and if not, maybe this is the reason to be!

Besides the howlingly-ironic spectacle of numerous FB users slagging on Twitter as being a useless and chatty waste of time, you may notice a theme emerging from the replies. A few quotes:

  • WE WANT A RELEASE DATE!
  • How much longer do we have to wait? Sacred 3 will be out before D3 at this rate….
  • I WANT TO KNOW WHEN IS IT GONNA COME OUT !!!! FREAKING OUT OVER HERE !!!
  • i stopped playing d2 a few years back after being a blizzard crackhead for 7 years, it just might happen again if theres a release date for d3…. as far as i understood, d3 was coming out after sc2, and starcraft is out now so…. how bout a release date?
  • How about stop wasting time on twitter and telling me to join it, and just finish your damn game…

  • HOW BOUT AN OPEN BETA AT THE VERY LEAST?!?!??
  • how about..just release it…
  • Okay I have waited long enough! I want my diablo 3 now please
  • Again teasing us with this, Release date please….anxiously awaiting…plus add paladin too the classes
  • wtf twitter promo ? whats blizzard doing wasting time in twitter instead of finishing D3, it’s years past due
  • Give me the release date and NOBODY gets hurt…seriously…
  • Just release it!!! 😀
  • Twitter sucks, finish the damn game!
  • release it please !
  • you guys already changed the release date a billion times now… just get it over with and stop lying about it and actually make a release date that STICKS
  • Speaking of diablo twitter, RELEASE DIABLO 3 NOW
  • IDGAF when is diablo coming out?!
  • How about you just progress with the game… stop wasting time tweeting.
  • GET DIABLO 3 GOING ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

This onslaught did one useful thing, though. It prompted a reply in the comments from a Blizzard dood (Bashiok?).

There is no release date. There won’t be a release date for some time. Chillax.

Blizzard would never give a release date for an announcement of a DiabloWikirelease date, but this sounds like bad news for anyone who was hoping to hear one next month at Blizzcon. When will they announce a release date? Not before we’re well into the beta test, when they can make a realistic estimate they know will stick. That’s how it worked with SC2, and you’ll note that though the WoW:Cataclysm beta is well underway now, they still haven’t given a release date for that game.
