That’s right people, it has been delayed again. As if that was going to surprise you. For those of you following this game, it was announced around 5 years ago. The news got out that Blizzard was shooting for a 2011 release, but with recent developments, they projected that it would be first quarter 2012 until a release was possible. We also had a nice Best Buy incident that told of a February launch, but this was quickly shot down by Blizzard.
That changed yesterday when Blizzard announced that they were delaying Diablo 3 for a summer time frame for the launch. Blizzard also said that they were implementing a lot of changes. As to what they were changing is unknown, but I would imagine it is something, you know… Important.
On another note, Blizzard also says they only expect to release one other title this year. They are working on several titles such as Starcraft 2: Heart of The Swarm and WoW: Mists of Pandaria, as well as the mysterious title known only as “Titan”. It’s anyone’s guess as to which title will launch first, but my money’s on the Starcraft expansion.
For more information on Diablo 3, check out the game at Gamespot or Blizzard. If you’re a fan of MMO’s, we here at NAPS recommend giving this title a good look over. Hopefully, we’ll get to play this long overdue game sometime in the near future.
