I can tolerate murder, theft, natural disaster and all that is wrong with this world, but me not being part of the Diablo 3 beta? LUDICROUS!
Blizzard had been hoping to release Diablo 3 2011, but as you might be able to tell, chances for that are very slim now. Instead, the game is now slated for “early 2012”. Whether that means actually early 2012 or “early” in Blizzards next fiscal year is another question entirely. This is the beauty of giving vague dates: Companies can’t really go wrong.
