    "D3 in early 2012 and not Q1"

    From Bashiok

    "Sorry I wasn't intending to imply anything by writing first quarter, just an honest mistake. Our official target is still "early 2012". Not sure if it makes too much difference one way or the other, but I don't want people to nitpick a mistake. "

    Optimist :- "Yay! Feb 1st"
    Pessimist :- "Oh shit April/May release"
    Realist :- "FML! "

    Edit: Actually THIS(scroll down to the blue post) pretty much confirms they are not going to make the Q1 deadline, hence the clarification.

    Good eye. At least the game will be super excellent and ready for a solid release. After what SE did to me with FFXIV, I'll wait for a finished product.

    Early is more vague than the specificity of Q1. There is nothing implied except that he can't tell us.

    Blizz usually give a release-date 3 months in advance, so at the moment I wouldn't expect to see it until at least April,

    Sir, you are correct.

    And then a bunch of people would bitch and they'd have released a subpar product. Now they'll have people bitch, but will actually not release something broken.

    Keep in mind the phrase

    traditionally we've tried to announce
    They have traditionally have done other things as well.

    if you look at traditionally how we've handled that race
    To add, I know doing something different in lore vs doing something financially are different ball fields, just thought it would be nice to look at it this way.

    I'm ok with it. This is the old Blizzard talking, imo. They'll release it when it's done.

    Glad it's going to be early 2012, but let them take their time. The more time spent, the better the game!

    It's blizzard, it's going to be slow...

    Wish they had released it allready, but. It's done when it's done, and we still need to wait a few more months atleast. Sadly.

    /sigh

    i think I'm more excited about ME3 seeing as I know when it's going to come out rather than waiting for Blizzard to announce a solid release date.

    It's annoying, but I'll grin and bare it. At the end of the day I want the best experience possible on release and not get all hyped up only to realise that parts of the game are flawed because of bugs that otherwise would have been fixed. So I'm just going to be patient.

    Also from a business perspective, Blizzard have more to lose by releasing a buggy game too early than releasing a good game a little late.
