    We have implemented changes which will greatly improve the game experience and final release will live up to the highest expectations. We expect launch to be a big opportunity for Blizzard. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.

    It'll be fine. We'll have some info real soon on skills and runes, a new patch, and we'll be cookin' on the road to Releaseville.
    Can't we just enjoy eachothers company?

    We've only ever said "early 2012". And we just decided we'd need until Q2 this week. Seems like the conference call was as good a place as any to announce that.

    I think it's what most people were expecting at this point so not really a huge surprise.

    By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail

    I hope so. It keeps getting pushed back again and again. It'd be nice to have a solid release date. Played the beta briefly and I'm looking forward to the rest of the game. Seems pretty polished, and I haven't experienced any game-breaking bugs. Especially looking forward to messing around with the rune system!

    If I'm understanding this right, Q4 just ended. Meaning we have another 3-6 months to wait? Wow, that still feels way too long

    wat?
    In blizzard terms this is right on track, early stands for the first 6 months of the year and late for the 6 final ones.
    Q2 starts pretty soon so we'll probably see some new info coming up in the near future.

    Financial quarters are a little different than the quarters for fiscal years. For companies, Q1 = January-March, Q2 = April-June, Q3 = July-September & Q4 = October-December.

    A friend of mine who works at Best Buy in the Geek squad just told me that they recieved a paper with incoming releases this year. D3 is supposed to be on June 6th.

    If anything to me its the best ''possible'' release date iv'e seen. And its in Q2

    Also expect a June release, have since about October last year when it was obvious just how..."behind" they claim to be.

    Your friend is wrong.

    Retailers will find out the release date the same time you do.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you're just trolling at this point though.

    OT: pretty much what i've expected, just hope we can get a beta wave in EU :<

    It's not something I didn't expect. However, as long as a delayed release greatly increases the quality of the finished product I won't complain. Still very much looking forward to it!

    i am really happy about that. gives me more time to enjoy swtor before sinking in d3.

    Honestly I will believe it when I am actually playing the game. "Targeting" does not actually mean that the game will come out. Although I wish it would. Even so Q2 could technically be as late as June so you are still possibly looking at 4.5 months

    That's what they said last time

    From what I've seen in beta...they haven't reinvented the wheel. I'm kinda surprised it's taken them this long to get it on the shelves.
    It plays very similar to Diablo II...with improved graphics and no way to play without an internet connection (looks like I'll be keeping DII on the laptop for travel ).
