Diablo 3 Release Date Not Actually February 1, Blizzard Confirms

Diablo 3 Beta Monk Guide

If you were browsing around the gaming Internet over the weekend then you probably saw some talk about Diablo 3. A seemingly official display touting a February 1 release and midnight sale for the game popped up in a Minnesota Best Buy long enough for a tipster to snap a photo and send it in to Joystiq.

It really looked official, that display. There was a countdown clock and everything. Sure, February was spelled as "Feburary," but mistakes happen. Mistakes like a store making an assumption about a release date. Blizzard community manager Micah "Bashiok" Whipple posted on Twitter that "Diablo 3 does not have a release date." It doesn't get much more official than a statement from the game's developer.

Take comfort in the fact that Diablo 3 really is coming. It'll even be here relatively soon, as early 2012 is still the expected release window. Just make sure the date you're getting excited about next time is a Blizzard-confirmed one.
