    Fake. Blizzard never releases a game on a Friday.

    Even aside from the fact that they wouldn't let the info date slip through their own online service...


    Update: I thought it said Jan 28, and then I checked 2011's calendar. So I was wrong twice. June 28, 2012 is a Thursday.

    Ironically, this almost exactly matches my own prediction, in the big thread. I've got June 26, 2012. Which is a Tuesday, the usual day of the week for Blizzard to release their games.

    Fake IMO.

    The German article states that this page was up for a "brief moment", which essentially means there's no way to verify whether it's true or not. I highly doubt the game's already been PEGI rated since that normally doesn't happen until very close to release (there's no point in rating an unfinished product) and I think the previous Diablo games have been released in late June, hence the release date you see there.

    So yeah, no.

    Interestingly, the D3 digital purchase link (https://us.battle.net/account/management/digital-purchase.html?product=D3&gameRegion=NA) does exist, while a D4 digital purchase link (https://us.battle.net/account/management/digital-purchase.html?product=D4&gameRegion=NA) returns an error message.

    I would have almost believed it if it had said 2011.

    German game rating may be different... It differs per country.
    BUT
    I think it's fake because if Bllizzard will give out a pre-order release date they'll for sure would start at their main site, not the german version.

    Is it just me, or does Diablo look a lot like a Hydralisk for some reason?

    Keep in mind that we will most likely not fight the 3 prime evils this time...

    Isn't Diablo one of the prime evils? I'm about 127% sure we'll be fighting Diablo.

    Blizzard will pull a Double Shyamalan plot twist maneuver, and the prime evils will actually turn out to be creepy autistic kids.

    Likely that the BLEEPING meteor holds an even more ancient (seed of) evil. So we get 1 extra level and we'll be alright ;)

    ...Do you honestly think that they would suddenly give out the release date without an announcement?

    Common sense here people, they would never not announce the release of such a highly anticipated game over the forums or whatnot.

    Not to mention Blizzard could easily push forward or backward the release date by then. I sometimes wonder how many times Blizzard needs to repeat, "when it's done", before they're taken seriously.

    I guess because of the Diablo draught someone got bored.

    Europe uses commas instead of a decimal point. So it is consistent with how it would look on the European Blizzard store.

    Still fake though :p

    Re: fake or real ?

    They had a PEGI rating for the announcement in Paris. People laughed when they saw it.

    The biggest hint is that on der willkommen page, the text on the Diablo portion of the site says that the user is in the NA region. If that were so, the entire site would be listed in English.

    Ich sage, es ist sheiße.
