Diablo 3 Release Date Announced

Posted on March 15, 2012 AT 07:50am

THE BUZZ: Blizzard has announced the official release date of Diablo 3.

The game will be available in both the U.S. and Europe from May 15. Blizzard has today kicked off digital pre-sales and you can secure your copy at now.

“After many years of hard work by our development team and months of beta testing by hundreds of thousands of dedicated players around the world, we’re now in the homestretch,” said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime. ”We look forward to putting the final polish on Diablo 3 over the next two months and delivering the ultimate action-RPG experience to gamers worldwide starting on May 15.”

EGM’s TAKE: It’s been an incredibly long time coming and rumors have been circulating for what seems like an eternity, but now we finally have an official release date. Fans will be pleased to know that they only have a few months left to enjoy the next entry in this famous series. The only major issue is will they like it? Many fans have voiced concerns over changes in Diablo 3, stating that it is already looking old before it’s even released. Blizzard has a lot of critics to prove wrong by May 15.
