[PC WORLD] Blizzard Releasing Diablo 3 By End Of June - Page 2

post #11 of 53
As an user said, Diablo 3 was planned for release in november 2011. Activision said to their retailers it would hit the market that month. Every retailer have a number of possible release date and every date were withing Q4 2011 and Q1 2012. So the game WAS in fact delayed.
HOTS is also delayed to 2013 due to this fiasco which was supposed to be released Q3 2013 (the expansion is already done, lol).

Someone left the diablo 3 team, probably disagreeing the changements others were about to do on the game. We don't know the story but the game was really delayed. That is sure. Stop saying it wasn't lol

IT WAS NOT.

THEY HAVE NEVER SET A RELEASE DATE. They have never said "it's coming out"

The whole "2011 planned release" was taken out of context!

I'm seriously pissed! Everywhere I go, I see this misinformation and everyone gets this idea that Blizzard is some kind of Duke Nukem Forever case, when they have never delayed the game.

BestBuy had 3/31/12.

Amazon had 6/31/12

Newegg has 12/31/12

These websites and retailers put up speculative dates.

Every freaking website I go to, I see this "Delayed again, gg Blizzard"
Well, there NEVER a release date set. Only a "Maybe we'll release it Q1, if we feel it's ready", not "We're releasing it Q1"
This here, what you're posting, is starting even more speculation. PC World just caught alot of FLac on the Diablo 3 beta forums, where a community manager said that information can't be used as a reference...so I'd say they heard something and jumped the gun, and pulled it / modified it out of context.
Just getting sick of all these people MAKING release dates, then when the game doesn't release, they say it was delayed.
When Blizzard never sets a release date. Christ.

This. The alleged release dates are always accompanied by "if everything goes to plan". rolleyes.gif

I remember seeing video for this game like 3-4 years ago. Blizzard works too damn slowly.

I'm glad they are reworking the system and I like the changes they have place. Granted I didn't get a chance to play it before they changed it but it works really well as it is and just needs some fine tuning. Well, at least the 1% of the game in normal mode that we have seen anyways. When things become more difficult I can imagine that it becomes more difficult to maintain the games balance and this is probably what is taking so long to fine tune. That and there seem to be several b.net features and such that were just implemented that they want in place for the launch of the game. I.E. - "blizzcash" system was just implemented last week and the auction house isn't up right now... Things are still coming, but I have confidence they will get it right. The game looks amazing in person btw, it's going to be a hit.

As a tester id say the game itself is good to go np that said blizzard likes to polish and perfect things and the additional features aren't quite running just yet such as battle tags and what not (battle tags being blizzards version of gamer ID an alternative to realid)

That is a lot of information you've posted without any links to back it up. Doesn't matter though, I'm taking this PC World article with a grain of salt until I hear something official from someone that actually works for Blizzard.

Wow dude, you need to chill. You want some evidence that the game WAS DELAYED?

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/3552227

Boom, there you go. Official quote from Mike Morhaime:

"For Diablo III, we were aiming to launch by the end of 2011. As we’re announcing globally today, our new target for the game is early 2012."

And now, after the conference call, their "new target" is Q2 2012.

This is all relative to your definition of "delay" though. You're gonna come back and say "but there was never a set date!" and you're right, there wasn't. That does not mean the game hasn't been delayed. Accept it.
