    Diablo 3 Release Delayed Again

    Blizzards revenues expected to be down in q1 year over year, 925mm of their 4B to come in q1 not nearly high enough to indicate a planned launch of a new title.

    Technically April falls under the Early 2012 title since it is the part of the 1st 1/4 of the year. After that then they are no longer early so if we still believe the Early™ than April.

    It better be April. Damn you Blizzard :p

    Also 1 million WoW annual passes + whatever pre-orderes on b-net + retail = insane amount of D3 preorders already :O
    Of course Annual passes isn't as much profit for them (although a retail copy is less profit than a bnet copy as well), but its still a copy sold.

    Did they mean fiscal year or "real" year?
    Because the Q2 of FY2012 in US ends at March 31st.

    Re: Q1 not looking good

    With the beta-keys to other regions yet to be sent out, the beta-key contests comming up, betaplaying for thease new peeps for at least 2 weeks and rune/skill-patch implemented and shutting the beta 2 weeks before release i would be suprised if they whould have managed a march release. I think we can be pretty confident in an April launch thou. I would say this is obvious news and not bad new.

    Re: Q1 not looking good

    I thankfully didn't get any hopes up for any news cause the conference calls always seem to dissapoint us Diablo fans. However I will say that Blizz needs to get their act together cause if we aren't there yet, we are officially closing in on "absurd"

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Delayed Again

    Max i would wait is June 30th. I hope Blizz dont let this team do any other blizzard title again (except D3 expansions). Years and years of development for a straightforward action rpg which has elements copied from previous installments is a mighty joke.

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Delayed Again

    I can't understand why everyone on the official forums is so pissed who seriously expected a march release with the runes etc? Most peoples predictions seemed to be April and that's still my own feeling too so why is everyone so angry about Q2?

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Delayed Again

    If it was supposed to be released in April, Blizzard would have stayed with "early 2012". It's definetely not April. In fact I'm 99% sure it will be June.

    Re: Diablo 3 Release Delayed Again

    Why June? I could probably agree early May is a possibility but from everything I've read and seen it doesn't look like they need another 4 and a half months to finish it. Bashiok said yesterday runes are coming in a patch soon along with new skills so apart from some balance testing etc there's no nothing major left to overhaul.
