    No one, including Blizzard, knows what the D3 release date is. At best, Blizzard knows the time period they are targeting with release "i.e. summer of 2011." Anyone claiming otherwise is trolling for attention, as news website often do.

    The dudes from G4TV. :D

    But hey, if you're going to pick an arbitrary release date, it may as well be April Fool's Day.

    My point is, they're not Blizzard. Ergo, the release date is not legit.

    Lots of places giving a Q1 2011 date. Hmm...


    I'd go for that deal, but I don't think 2K or Gearbox have said which quarter of 2011 they're releasing DNF.

    Re: G4tv has Diablo 3 release date

    Lots of places gave a Q4 2010 date. How'd that work out?

    The gallery of fail: http://diablo.incgamers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=586

    Also, Jay Wilson said the D3 beta would start around 6 months before the game's release. It's now early November 2010. April 1st 2011 is... 5 months from now. There's one obvious conclusion to draw from this. TEH BETA STARTED LAST MONTH111! SEKRIT BETAH11!!!!1!

    Re: G4tv has Diablo 3 release date

    My bet is late Q3 or Q4 2011. They surely don't wanna miss the Christmas Sales. And before you say that they don't care about that, the game will sell itself, sure it will. But look at Blizzard's last release schedules:

    World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King - Nov 2008
    World of Warcraft: Cataclysm - Dec 2010
    Starcraft 2 released in July 2010 but only because of the B.Net 2.0 problems. If those hadn't occured it would have probably been released in Dec 2009.

    I'm pretty sure, they WANT to release this year and if nothing goes horrably long they will probably achieve that goal. Jay's comments at Blizzcon indicate that they are very close to a F&F Alpha, which usually lasts about 1-2 months, then it's off into Closed Beta. So hold your hands for Beta starting in Q1 2011, it's very likely.

    But to be honest, I'm not going crazy about when it is released. Cataclysm is coming up in 1 month which will keep me occupied for at least a year and if Diablo III is really not going to be released late next year, at that point the beta will surely have started and I'll have many beta reports to read or maybe take part in it myself. :)

    A 2 post dude with a spam link... coincidence no???? Come on people, wake up. This thread was less about the release of D3 and more about the promo of something entirely different

    Re: G4tv has Diablo 3 release date

    Shameful attempt at getting people to go to some stupid site that sells games.

    There should be some bold fat text on the screen of everyone trying to make an account now : STOP MAKING THREADS ABOUT YOU THINKING YOU FOUND THE RELEASE DATE

    Anyone that makes another thread thinking they know the D3 release date when Blizzard didn't even announce a beta yet is a dumbass.
    There's a sticky thread where you can guess the release date and everything until we know a beta date is a HUGE guess.

    Re: G4tv has Diablo 3 release date

    The interesting thing about this one is that it's not even a retailer doing it. Places like Amazon and Gamestop LOVE to drop release dates (even if they are totally false) because they want ur moniez.

    This G4TV thing is like an IGN type thing, right? Except instead of having a website they actually some how have a TV show?

    So, in that case, they're not after ur moniez. Very odd.

    Re: G4tv has Diablo 3 release date

    I wish they would just send out a damn press note saying "There will be a collector's edition for Diablo III, content decided at a later date" so people can at least pre-order the thing. Jay Wilson confirmed it at BlizzCon but it isn't like people who decide when to put in skus into a system were watching that.

    Re: G4tv has Diablo 3 release date

    Q1 2011 is way too early IMO - given they did announce beta keys, this means we're getting close to the Beta, in addition to all the core systems being completed. Best bets is Q3/Q4 2011 though I'd love to be proven wrong and have it even earlier, but not at the cost of quality.

    Still - I think 2011 is looking like it could be our year :D
