    Looks like I will be taking a week off from work!

    So who is ready for some Diablo 3?
    This game is going to be off the hook!
    This might easily become game of the year.
    Looking forward to see all WHT'ers there!

    Amazon has no release date for it yet. If ANYONE is going to tell us when it'll be released, it'll be the major market sellers like Amazon, and of course Blizzard itself. They won't just give us 2, 3 weeks, they'll give us a month or two heads up.

    Update: Several folks in comments are calling this a Photoshop. Note that Joystiq said they had contacted the retail location and verified the sign's existence.

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Diablo+I...4164945&loc=01

    Their website itself says: Release Date: 2/1/2012

    Edit:

    Strange. I sent a text to a friend who is a manager at a local BestBuy and she said it's listed in their computers as 2/28/2012... hrm!

    Well we all have to wait and see.
    I expect some type of announcement by Blizzard sometimes this week since there are so many rumors.

    I won't hold my breathe until it goes gold.. I'm sure they'll hold off another 6 months because they want to polish it a bit more... maybe next christmas?

    And Walmart says 3/31/12, Target says 2/7/12, Amazon says 'unknown', Gamestop says 'Early 12'.

    Most importantly, blizzard has remained with the same answer since day 1:
    It's too early to estimate Diablo III's release date. As with all Blizzard Entertainment games, our goal is to create a game that is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible. We intend to take as much time developing Diablo III as is necessary to ensure the game meets our own high expectations and those of our players. We're aiming to release Diablo III on both Mac and Windows simultaneously in as many regions as possible, and to localize the game in several languages. We'll have more details to share about countries, languages, and specific dates as we get closer to release.
    There's nothing confirmed, nothing set in stone, and ALL of the release dates we've heard from ALL of these providers are just rumor and conjecture. This is as bad as the iPhone 5 hype, really. When there IS a solid release date, providers across the world will put it up there. They won't skip Amazon, newegg, Walmart, Target, or any major provider. They'll ALSO have it listed on their website.

    There's no way Blizzard is stupid enough to give 2-3 weeks notice of release on something this hugely expected. No way at all.

    I'm inclined to agree with linux-tech on this, especially given the widespread anticipation.

    I will be glad when it finally does come out. I just hope I don't end up getting disappointed. To much hype usually means it will be crap. Please don't screw it up BLIZZARD.

    From what I've seen (previews, videos, etc), it will be epic.I don't support Blizzard much any more, after the ridiculous turns they've made with WoW, but Diablo III has been anticipated for years, and I think they'll pull this one off well enough, when they DO finally get it released.

    Might just take some time (not much ) away from SWTOR to play it

    I'm in the Beta, and I will confirm, that it is a freaking amazing game that I personally cannot wait to spend $60 and a week or more of my life on.

    By playing WoW :/ lol. Anybody that has an "active" Blizzard game, such as WoW subscription, or StarCraft 2 game has a chance to be selected into the beta. They also ran a contest on facebook.

    Theres also this: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/to...0198992?page=1

    For those still in doubt, it has been confirmed NOT to be February 1, from G4 AND Blizzard

    Blizzard community manager Micah "Bashiok" Whipple posted on Twitter that "Diablo 3 does not have a release date." It doesn't get much more official than a statement from the game's developer.
    Diablo III does not have a release date. Any store or person claiming otherwise is guessing.
    There we have it, the dates posted are false, from Blizzard themselves.

    BTW, EB Games (Canada) has the release date listed as February 1. I know someone who knows someone who works there and he gave a resounding, oh yes, it's going down February 1. Furthermore, the FRENCH version is listed on their website as also being released on February 1:

    http://www.ebgames.ca/pc/diablo-iii-...%A7aise/310096

    Interesting enough the english version doesn't give a release date.

    You don't understand marketing hype, do you?

    Retailers list release dates on their site, so that they can get your money before other companies do.

    I'm almost certain that they all say something about its a pre-order, or that the actual release date is estimated and may change.

    If Blizzard hasn't announced its release date yet, then it doesn't have one.

    will diablo 3 give anything we havent got in wow already : hack hack slash slash, kill xp, level up, put talents, drop dropped, take the loot and use it, kill end boss -> next level.

    i dont see any point in doing that after playing wow for so long. maybe for the story, but i cannot just tolerate that long grind just to further an interactive story at this time and age after all the gaming i did ...

    It'll probably be pushed back a few years.

    If it does come out on Feb 1st, I'm definitely going to have to get it.

    They've been running beta on it for a while.
    They're also giving it away to anyone who signs up for a 1 year WoW sub, which (kind of) leads me to believe it'll be sometime this year

    Of course, I'm speculating, and I HOPE I'm right, but nobody knows officially.

    Yeah, I was just being sarcastic. I hope it doesn't, but since it's been pushed back year after year god knows how many times, nothing would surprise me at this point.

    I am looking forward to this game, as I loved Diablo I and II. I do know it will be the same game format as the previous releases but that is what I liked about it.
