Since the rather disappointing news back in 2009 that Diablo 3 would not be released during the following year either, there has been no concrete evidence or mention of an actual release date, leaving fans of the previous titles in somewhat of a forlorn state.
Unfortunately, while Diablo 3’s Director Jay Wilson made no mention as to when the protracted title could be expected, he did recently tell the New York Times that Blizzard are making progress with the game, “definitely in the home stretch. We’re crunching. This is when the magic happensâ€, said Wilson.
Bearing in mind that Blizzard have become somewhat synonymous with the release of early statements regarding up and coming titles, it may still be quite some time before we actually see Diablo 3 on the shelves. Especially when Activision’s last financial report made no mention of a Blizzard title scheduled for release this year.
On the up side, at least we know that the game is still in production.
