Diablo 3 Release date - Finally announced!



After a multitude of speculations, rumors, and delays, Blizzard Entertainment has finally announced that Diablo III will be released on May 15, 2012.

Just a little over a week ago, rumors about an April release put the Internet on the look out for evidence confirming the news. One look at the splash page of the Battle.net, however, now puts all that speculation to rest:


In the same week, in an article on IGN, Diablo III director Jay Wilson said that they had to trim down the player-versus-player (PvP) feature so the game can make its then-tentative release date.

“We ultimately felt that delaying the whole game purely for PvP would just be punishing to everyone who's waiting to enjoy the campaign and core solo/co-op content," Wilson said.

A PvP patch will be available for download on a later date. Blizzard promised that the patch will include “Arena maps with themed locations and layouts, PVP-centric achievements, and a matchmaking system."

Until then, Blizzard encourages the players to enjoy the single player and co-op game modes once the game is released. “You'll find some consolation in the fact that soon, you'll be having a blast leveling characters, finding items, learning the classes, and perfecting builds…and that when the Arenas do arrive, you'll be all the better prepared for battle,” Wilson concluded.
