    Diablo 3 - 2012?

    If you look at this page. On the right side the 4th listing/box shows an about to emerge article. Sadly it seems Diablo 3 will not come out in 2011 based on the title of that Blog.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/3542796/The_Diablo_III_Beta_Is_Now_Live-9_20_2011#blog


    Edit: The link to the article has been removed by Blizz. Luckily for us our good fellow forumer took a screenshot of it before it was gone. I am sure however that the actual thing will emerge first thing tomorrow at 9 am Blizz HQ time:


    Final Edit : Actual article is up.

    Yes because it was posted 2 hours ago and have yet to emerge as an article. Its a bug with the D3 website to show links before the article is actually up.

    Soo... 4-5 months of testing first half of Act 1 ? Oh joy.

    I hope they really have good reasons for this, and it's not:
    "We want to release game at the same time on all platforms (yes, including consoles)". I would nerdrage...

    Another funny fact is that this article was posted at approximately 1.23am. Maybe I am imagining stuff but I can just see Jay Wilson and his team working hard until 1am when he finally drops down into his chair and said "F*ck This. Lets just release in 2012. Go home and sleep everybody. Bashiok come ere, I want you to write me an article for tomorrow morning".

    At least thats usually what happens in my workplace when we are rushing for a project to be done.

    Max Schaefer was right after all. Guess he knows the intricacies of developing games better or he still has good connections with Blizz employees.

    Not too fussed.

    If it goes to the second quarter or later, I will be sad. Oh well, I have Diablo 2 and Titan Quest, and Skyrim will be out soon, and following that will be Torchlight 2. I've already preordered Mass Effect 3, and I am sure I have enough to keep entertained until that or Diablo III comes out.

    The upside of today’s announcement is that we will be running the beta test longer than we initially planned, which will allow us to invite more of you who have opted in.


    Translation: They will bump the invite list from 60 to maybe 200 or so! ;)

    Re: Diablo 3 - 2012?

    I would never have believed it

    D3 started company wide internal testing May 1, 2011
    they have a crap load of money to hire more testers,
    they have a huge and experienced QA department,
    they have experienced devs and network people who have worked on bnet 2.0 and WOW and SC
    and yes, those are all separate teams, but they obviously talk to each other

    I would have bet anything that D3 would be released by christmas (although I always believed it would ship without the RMAH and that that would be added later)

    Re: Diablo 3 - 2012?

    I like what I've seen of the beta so far, so I am not too concern about a 2012 release.

    BTW My birthday is in Feburary :hint: :hint: :grin:
