Diablo 3 release date

A recent rumor that Diablo 3 will be released BEFORE Starcraft 2 actually prompted Blizzard to officially address the issue of the release date.

Here’s the summary in short: Battle.net 2.0 will be released simultaneously with the release of Starcraft 2. The best guess for that is early 2009, with a Starcraft 2 beta coming out late in 2008.

So Diablo 3 will come out AFTER that … possibly by the end of 2009. An encouraging news will be if Blizzard have a playable Diablo 3 demo at Blizzcon.

Update: Here’s the quote from Rob Pardo:

A lot of the way we develop is: We wanna make sure the game is really fun and the visual fidelity we want … we wanna make sure we have a small area that feels really done so we know what to build. So even though it looks really complete a lot of the content is just not there. We have a long ways to go to build each of the different acts in the game and put in all the quests and all the different monsters. We have a lot of development ahead of us before it will be something … It will definitely be out after StarCraft II.”

I hope this answers the last comment!

    I hate it when a gaming company release a teaser trailer that looks so incredably AWSOME and the game comes so late afterwards….

  18. 18 B20074LPwnZ Oct 23rd, 2008 at 8:07 am

    Blizzard always has the most wacky release times. My friends are convinced its coming out before Christmas but if it was they would already have the date announced. Diablo II was made in 2000. So this game better be 9 years worth the wait. There is only so many times i can watch the game-play trailer ^_^

  19. 19 Dane Oct 26th, 2008 at 1:37 pm

    Been waiting for this game for 5 years, id rather them not annouce it at all until the week before its released just so I wouldnt spend 12 hours a day watching the game play videos. Alot of people say d3 is gonna be gay. Well ya know what? fuck you cause Blizzard has never come out with a bad game, and I guarantee they wont start now. Quit talkin shit about a game you dont play and go back to your p.o.s xbox.

  20. 20 chrisss Oct 28th, 2008 at 6:38 pm

    hey i havent played d2 in likle a year cuz my account with all lvl 90s-99s got hacked and since the new one is coming out im gona play d2 agian . I WAS WOUNDERING IF ANYONE HAD A D2 ACCOUNT I CAN HAVE TO GET ME STARTED BACK UP..

    thanks guys.

  21. 21 Yu Zhang Oct 28th, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    Goood to know that, hope d3 could be released asap. however, it is a game by bizzard, means that it will NEVER be published on time.

    I played D2 and FFX in high school, 5 years late, i got other 3 FF games and few pics about D3. Come on! I amnot such a fan of WOW, give me D3!

  22. 22 BigEd Oct 30th, 2008 at 8:16 am

    I’m 57 years old, and I’ve learned through the years to wait for the things that are great. I’m having a hard time now with Diablo 3. Just finished Diablo 2 yesterday, and want to play 3 ASAP.

  31. 31 Parlzer Nov 16th, 2008 at 12:47 am

    I AM FRIENDS WITH A EMPLOYEE WHO IS WORKING ON THE GAME FROM WHAT HE HAS TOLD ME D3 WILL BE AVAILABLE ON 07/2009

  32. 32 EL Gringo Nov 17th, 2008 at 6:27 am

    The old Diablo 2 took about 5 years to complete so its no wonder that Diablo 3 project started last 2005 and is still not available for release. Great things are worth the wait.

    I just wish they didnt released the teaser because now we have a lot of Diablo 3 zombies. hahahaha!

  33. 33 Jerk Face Nov 19th, 2008 at 7:22 am

  35. 35 sierra Nov 24th, 2008 at 12:50 pm

    Let blizzard do they yob as long as they think they need to work on it, even that meant 2011.And then,when game came in my hands i can say “goodbye to world,hello diablo 3″

  46. 46 Dead Barbarian Daddy Jan 10th, 2009 at 10:25 am

    Hey Blizzard, don’t let me tired of waiting for D3. If I’m tired, I will not buy the ‘they say it will be awesome’ D3 – no matter what. I am bored now – do not let me tired. This is NOT a warning, just an honest statement.

    Regards.

  47. 47 QUE_2 DUO Jan 16th, 2009 at 4:03 pm

    WHILE WAITING FOR D3′S RELEASE WHY NOT BROWSE THE NET FOR MORE D2 MODS TO KEEP YOU GUYS BUSY UNTIL THEN.

  48. 48 Quan Jan 19th, 2009 at 12:36 pm

    y Blizzard make us wait too long! Shit!

  50. 50 HAMMERZZZ Jan 21st, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    GIMME THAT! HAH, And Nilop is right.. i guess true that we want the game to be awsome we might as well wait for them to make a Badass D3 possible right?

  51. 51 APD90700 Jan 23rd, 2009 at 10:19 am

    Hey guys, I recommend you guys going out and reading the Diablo books while you wait. Will help kill some time.

  52. 52 Danman500 Jan 24th, 2009 at 4:05 am

    yea i to have been waiting for over like…5 years? for the release of this game.
    all i can say is trailers and all this hype could spoil the game for me, so im trying to watch too many trailers or get too into it until its actually out
    however – diablo 3 looks like 1 of the best pc games out in a long long time and im pretty sure apart from starcraft 2, wil be the best pc game for a long long time after

  53. 53 MonkeyFace Jan 28th, 2009 at 12:56 am

    Meh, I want Diablo 3! It looks awesome.

  56. 56 Samzys Jan 28th, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    Diablo 3 IS NOT GOING to be realesed on 9/9/09 Blizzard has not even made plans to realesing it yet to say a realese date is absered!
    Go to Blizzards web site and find out for urselfs

  57. 57 Samzys Jan 28th, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    On September 13, 2008 there was a rumor posted on a popular fansite that Diablo 3 would come BEFORE StarCraft 2.

    As of July 2, 2008, there is no set release date for Diablo 3. This follows Blizzard’s policy of releasing when “it’s ready”.

    From the official Diablo 3 FAQ:

    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.

  58. 58 Samzys Jan 28th, 2009 at 12:53 pm

    9/9/09 release date is just stupid, it could come before or after this date NO ONE KNOWS!

  59. 59 JoshShock Jan 28th, 2009 at 5:42 pm

    doesnt matter when released b/c im gettin it lol

  60. 60 U8MYR!CE™ Feb 20th, 2009 at 5:42 am

    if only I know how to hax.

    fu*k the full release! take TOO freaking long to develope a game when they have so many experience with 1 & 2. f*cking ridiculous!

    fu*ck man. D3 better have a good story line OR ELSE!!!

    I don’t like D3 game perspective. I like Oblivion IV. If i were Oblivion game developer, I would make a game like D3 for Oblivion 5 =)

  61. 61 jamese Feb 21st, 2009 at 6:37 pm

    man like many of you are saying d3 bettere be good i mean diablo was killed in 1 & 2 and like wtf how many times is he going 2 die. d3 bettere have something god they took to long to make it and they almost scruded up the line that it goes in they beetter have some good players because idk about you guys but i am a necromancer all the way and i make mine a necromancer and a barbian so it is 2 in 1 if d3 is not good i will have a bone 2 pick with some 1

  62. 62 OrderTaker Feb 22nd, 2009 at 9:48 am

    release it already! i cant WAit

  63. 63 Alex4286 Feb 23rd, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    it just sucks because their next blizzcon which is near the end of August there still going to be releasing things in d3 prob the last few characters.. so u know for sure there not going to be done anytime soon.. there prob gunna be giving out d3 beta keys at the convention & so we prob wont be seeing the game out till maybe 12/09 or later (MY GUESS). It just sucks because I’m already addicted & it’s not even close to coming out!! lol I check almost every day on any new updates with the game. I just wish they havent announced d3 untill they were almost done.. its just shitty to have them make us WAIT SOOOOO LOOOOOONG.. and its crazy that they cant tell us atleast a quater of the year that they feel it MIGht be completed by?

  64. 64 Josh Feb 24th, 2009 at 4:12 pm

    I bought diablo 1 right when it came out…and diablo 2, right when that came out, and d2 expansion right when that came out. I’ve played to 99 40+ times. and even in hardcore I got to 90+ quite a few times. I love this game just as much as any of you. but if they rush its going to be one of those “eh…the second one was better” games. i’d rather wait and have a great game, than not wait and be upset that the second one was much better. Waiting sucks…play different games until it comes out. I personally I have bought 3 computers to run d3 on all of them. and the computer I’m currently using, I also got a projector, and a new monitor, and a 47 inch hd 1080 tv, all for d3. I’m just as much of a fan as any of you, and I think all of that shit proves it. I am telling you guys, if you rush them , they will rush, and it wont be as good as it could be. I’m hoping if I wait, it will be the best game I’ve ever played, but I know if they rush, it wont nearly be as good as it could be.

  65. 65 Hole in One Mar 1st, 2009 at 3:29 pm

  70. 70 Zzz Mar 9th, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    Why do they tell us Diablo 3 is coming out a year or more before it does? I mean wtf I have to wait all this time without even knowing a date. Please next time tell me oh maybe a month in advance, save me a lot of aggravation. Zzz

  71. 71 Michael Mar 11th, 2009 at 4:03 am

    You know guyz, lets just wait until the game is officially released by BLIZZARD! Dont rush BLIZZARD to release it sooner! Because as of now, I only see 3 characters in the game… The Barbarian, the wizard, and the witch doctor. Some characters are still missing in action! :( And they’re still producing some senarios, monsters, and quests for us to play with when its done. So, lets just wait and wait and wait… Maybe someday this year, we could play the game in our PC’s! To all the People who says that “Diablo 1, 2, or 3 sucks”, well, You guys also SUCKS! Hahaha! Diablo has many fans that supports the whole game! :P KEEP IT UP BLIZZARD! All of your games are EXTREMELY AWSOME! :D :)

  72. 72 Stefan Mar 16th, 2009 at 8:53 am

    Well that rumor is really wrong. They wouldn’t have put it on the pre-order list if it was going to be coming out 09/09/09. Blizzard only told that WotLK was pre-orderable 3-4 months before it was released. So I highly doubt its going to be that late. Probably summer or something but no way near that late

  73. 73 Stefan Mar 16th, 2009 at 8:56 am

    also to add, I recall him saying it was going to be released before Sc2… But oh well I might be wrong :>

  74. 74 Michael Mar 23rd, 2009 at 1:42 am

    WOOOAHHH!!!!!!! :D I saw the minimum requirements of the whole diablo 3 game last night! I was shocked! hahahahaha! Too much upgrade to my compter to play the game. hehehehe… Well…. The game is not out yet, so….. I still got the time to buy or upgrade my CPU… :) Goodluck for me! For this moment, I’m glad that D3 is not out yet in stores… hahaha! Peace! :D I hope i’d make it! :P Guys, better check ur PC’s too…. Bye

  75. 75 Trossen Mar 30th, 2009 at 2:20 pm

    Hey dudes, If your sick of waiting for d3 to come out, try out the mod median by bother laz for d2. Its the shit, he changed so much, monsters, items, skills, u name it. Median will tide me over till d3 comes out so try it out its fucking badass. go to google and type mods by laz and hit first link.

    Stay golden

  76. 76 OMG Mar 31st, 2009 at 11:28 am

    OMFG, just come out with the game already, i’m dying of anticipation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  77. 77 limin8or Apr 12th, 2009 at 3:30 am

    I will be back to steal all your items with my telekenesis!!!!

  78. 78 WoW Gamer Apr 19th, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    I heard that it is coming out soon. That was around 10 months ago. Up to now there’s no tentative date yet. Makes you wonder how long it’s going to be…

  79. 79 Akheroh Apr 30th, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    I remember about 7 years ago, a little after diablo 2 came out when i was reading a magazine in my dentist office that blizzard was planning on a diablo 3. So i spent that 7 years waiting for it to actually happen. So im not really suprised about the release of diablo 3, just anxious for a release date, lol.

  80. 80 Calicon May 2nd, 2009 at 11:58 am

    need d3 to come out so i can not get laid for a solid year

  81. 81 Nate Winter May 4th, 2009 at 5:53 am

    Wait wait guys, how about the release of WORLD OF DIABLO?!?!?! Now that would be awesome! Its funny listening to all of you bitch to Blizzard… Let them finish the damn game. I am sure they are putting in plenty of overtime for this project. Let their genius minds mold i into the game we are all desiring. Here’s to the day we all break the plastic on the package and smell the fresh Diablo 3.

  82. 82 BEN May 6th, 2009 at 3:31 am

    BLIZZARD CAN SUCK MY WANG THEY TAKE TOO LONG TO MAKE A GAME THAT WILL BE 99% LIKE WOW AND AND LOOSE ALL THERE FANS …. GREAT JOB BLIZZARD

  83. 83 Hillary May 8th, 2009 at 5:58 am

    I have been waiting for a few years for the D3 game, and I agree this one guy on here, if we have to wait another year it will be better than we thought it would be. I have played D2 over a dozen times and I will continue to play it until the release of D3. Blizzard is doing what they can to get it to us the fastest they can and making it great along the way, If it does come out 9-9-09 than great but if we have to wait another year, we have waited this long what could another year do? just my opioin. BLIZZARD ROCK AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE RELEASE OF D3!

  84. 84 Anonymous May 8th, 2009 at 7:57 pm

  92. 92 LMFAOGUY Jun 10th, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    HAHAHAHA come to find out when D3 comes out and i find you… that was pretty damn good.

  93. 93 suriasys Jun 13th, 2009 at 10:11 am

    I’ve been in love with diablo from the beginning. I remember playing diablo 1 religiously back in 96. A buddy of mine had 4 computers in his garage and we’d play multiplayer lan games and it was incredible. Until we found out how to dupe then it got kind of ridiculous with us having no self control lol. After finishing the game several times I finally got the internet and heard about battle.net which ended up owning my life. I even managed to get my brother into it and he only ever liked sports games. Though all he did was stay up on all the latest hacks so he could ruin everyones day and collect ears being a hardcore PK douche. As many flaws that were in the game I still loved playing it to death. I went ape shit when I found out about diablo 2 but only had to wait just a couple years for it to be released. It ended up being a million times better than diablo 1 and well worth the wait. Playing hardcore was the most bad ass shit until lag kills your level 97 necro while trying to use a waypoint. I don’t think it’s even been much more than a year since the official announcement of D3. After having seen a lot of what they’ve done on D3, giving them all the time they need to finish the game will be worth it. As much of a die hard fan that I am, I do have other shit to do with my life besides curling up under my desk in the fetal position crying about diablo 3 not being out yet and it taking too long. Life WILL go on without the possession of a video game, regardless of how incredible it is. I’d rather blizzard didn’t try to work against time on this third installment of such a great series. I can just imagine everyone bitching about all the flaws in the game due to an early release for all the crying “fans”. So even if it’s not released in september, I might be slightly disappointed, but I’d know it’s for very good reason and well worth it in the end.

  94. 94 :) Jun 13th, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    i hope the item system will be bigger than d2, so that the economy will be nice. A DEF AWESOME VARIETY OF ITEMS IS THE WAY TO GO IN A SUCCESSFUL GAME!!

  95. 95 Tyciol Jun 21st, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    Definitely delayed, early 09 is past.

  96. 96 Jay Jun 30th, 2009 at 7:17 am

    Will this game use more computer space than WoW.??
    And if,, how much then

  97. 97 hen Jul 3rd, 2009 at 5:48 am

    I think it sucks that it takes so long time, but reather that and then a better game, than a game with holes…

  98. 98 ScuttleButt Jul 8th, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    hey mr game master, please tell us when your game will launch in philippines??

  99. 99 teenageboy5676 Jul 12th, 2009 at 6:59 pm

    yea diablo 3 will be bad ass. but if you are 57 and waiting for diablo 3 please go rob a bank and buy alot of drugs. if you happen to get busted just kill yourself. go to the rush and get a life you fucking losers. gosh this is pitiful. i thought playing for a few hours a week was bad. reading this site makes me want to cry for all of you. gosh i am so sorry you losers…..

  100. 100 Diablo junkie Jul 13th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    i need this friggin game now!!!!!

  101. 101 NICK Jul 13th, 2009 at 11:44 pm

    I WANT TO PLAY SO BAD. I WANT TO PLAY FOR HOURS AND HOURS.

  102. 102 Skullnbones Jul 15th, 2009 at 6:44 am

    I was addicted when it was simply Diablo – friends and I spent hours playing until the theme music when you in town could be heard after the game was closed. Then D2 came out and the addiction grew, better graphics and storyline. Again hour spent playing the game and the expansion pack. Now we are simply beside ourselves to see D3, from what can be seen – it will by far exceed all expectations and land Blizzard king of vedio games again – LONG LIVE THE KING!!
    but throw us a bone, we’re dying here!!!

  103. 103 Jimmythefish Jul 18th, 2009 at 2:51 am

    Bilzzard have not stated a release date STILL, so it probably will be after Sept 9th 2009, sadly.

  104. 104 Harry Jul 18th, 2009 at 7:05 am

    Is it just me or trailers and game play look like they are a RIP OFF of LORD OF THE RINGS. Will Gandalf and LEGOLAS be there. All the bad guys are so why not the good guys. In all seriousness blizzard seems to be lacking some artistic imagination if they have to rip off LORD OF THE RINGS.

  105. 105 Nuid Jul 18th, 2009 at 8:10 am

    I personaly hope they take there time to finish the game before releaceing it. I am getting tired of games that look like there going to be awesome, but then turn out to have major issues, or incompleat aspects. that said I am looking forward to this one.

  106. 106 Jackass Jul 21st, 2009 at 6:31 pm

    some of you people are freaks….there are adult forums for you weirdos…..

  107. 107 JABBERWOCKY Jul 25th, 2009 at 1:21 am

    DO NOT BUY D3

    The D3 release delay so much the production of the gsme but on how it will earn money after it’s purchased. JUST LIKE WOW this game will at the very last minute before release be changed to a pay-to-play. (far too many investors bickering over who gets what and how often..)

    WOW Is spammed thousands of times a day by gold sellers accross all it’s servers and realms. The same old gold shops spamming away for years without blizzard doing anything to stop it. Most likely the legal teams involved in stopping them have been set to sue for a royalties % from each gold shop instead. Simply allowing it to continue for years as it pays for updates and some server maintenance… bubbly at the shareholder’s meeting lol.

    As well as that it will also have in game transactions (Classic blizzard game imbalance) allowing new players to buy items and “status” in minutes that would take a “legit” player weeks or months to achieve.

    This is of course money grabbing, not wanting to ensure we all get a good game. The excuses being given now say they want to make sure we all get a great game but in fact it’s more like we want to make sure we maximise profit and that the game continues to make us money after the customer buys it. Observe the patterns of other blizzard b.net / a.net games you’ll see this is undeniable. If diablo 2 is spammed by bots daily so much that every server has unplayable lag
    what makes you think d3 will be any different??! lol at you.

    MARK MY WORDS

    D3 WILL be pay to play and have an in game shop giving instant game imbalance. Us and them.. the rich and the poor. Same old Blizzard ignorance. The delay is in making the game a money spinner without making it blatantly obvious…Investors will be paid by returns from gold sales or items sales in the in game shop. (WOW gold sellers sales yearly into the millions of dollars a year – happygolds.com a subsiduary of blizzard?) The combined yearly sales of gold return more money each year than wow cost to develop. Blizzard games have taken gold sales and turning fake gold into real gold to a new level. It’s all tards that buy the gold or lil timmehs who’s fat psychopathic moms too busy thinking about sucking pole to worry about the economic stability of internet games. ;(

    HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT A SHIT HOLE LAG SCAMMY SPAMMER BOT INFESTED DUMP DIABLO 2 / LoD HAS BECOME? WOW IS GOING THAT WAY NOW. As WOW rolls over and dies d3 will be released. An example.. Some blizzard staff involved with the creation of diablo 2 went on to create a steamy shit hole unsupported graphically buggy game called hellgate london.
    The game was free to play but if you subscribed (monthly payment) it gave you more items more quests more everything really. This game miserably failed in EU and ended up being sold to some asian developer who actually made it work..successful.. in fucking china!!! Flagship studios staff all fired and the company that made the game faded into history. You can still buy this game on the shelves now in stores across the UK but when you get into the EU servers they are extreme lag ghost towns lol. Fuck blizzard and all their existing and previous staff. Fuck them with nail bats. Their games are a lie and full of blatent money grabbing imbalance.

    Insight into WoW
    World of Warcraft (A very fucking small world it is too, more like small heavily bordered slow progress racist island of warcraft full of runtyscrub timmehs and tards. Example.. lvl 80s running about killing lvl 10s “for fun” lil china timmehs running about begging ALL THE FUCKING TIME TOWNS FULL OF BEGGARS WHO CANT EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH FFS.
    They open trade with you while you were in the middle of writing a long mail to a guildie and demand you give them gold. When i quit wow i gave all my several thousands of LEGIT gold away in small amounts 100g at a time. Some scrub beggar got 100g then kept opening trade asking for more… Typical tard from wow. Blizzard happy to take your money to play with tards like this…You think D3 will be any different? lol

    If anything it will be worse than wow and with any luck will fail like hellgate london. They will simply hold back too much content from free players for it to be of playability at all. You wont be obliged to pay monthly but your game will be realy shit if you dont ;)

    This.. is the blizzard way.

    They dont make games they make money making programs.

    I dont provide my real email when a web site dont
    provide a real privacy statement :P

  108. 108 JABBERWOCKY Jul 25th, 2009 at 1:43 am

    Everything of value that you can find while playing D3 game will be instantly buyable from the D3 in game store. The chance to find these items in the game then.. will be reduced to almost 0.

    So you can spend all frickin week trying to find a rune or small charm or you can whip out your visa and get 5 in 2 minutes….
    Blizzard has been exploiting this lazyness since d2 first came out.
    It might become more evident in d3 but for sure as hell it wont change.

    THE FIRST WORDS EVER SPOKEN ON D3 SERVER WILL BE….

    GET YOUR D3 ITEMS FROM http://WWW.ILLEGALD3ITEMSHOPONLINE.COM

    AND SO WILL BEGIN THE DAILY SPAM AND ADVERTS

    The battles between blizzard and chinese korean slave drivers who apparenelyt force kids to play the game to get items to sell to us lazy bastards…

    ;)

  109. 109 Injambese Jul 26th, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    blizzard will make a nice bonus check on the resale of D2 games to quell the boners for a time, since your original D2 is missing a disc or picked up a scratch or crack over the past ten years..

    i haven’t anticipated a game this much in a long time :) should be smashing!

  110. 110 Macaher Jul 27th, 2009 at 11:51 am

    Well Mat…… I do not really know what shitty computers you can afford… but let me tell you, you ignorant, poor bastard… not only are computers on their climax as the leading gaming platforms (at least for the really sophisticated games, not shitloads like Halo and kiddie arcade kindergarten charades), they are as well the very instrument companies use to create every single game that is released (for both consoles and computer platforms), you imbecile.

    Let me put it this way to you, you fuck: You pick right now the best, fastest, most powerful console there is in the market right now, and test its performance next to the most powerful computer (one with the highest gfx card, greatest ram capacity, best processor). Guess what; your “cool” console ends up looking like a god damned Attari. =)

    Turn on brain before gearing up your mouth, nerdfuck.

  121. 121 Jimmythefish Aug 22nd, 2009 at 4:59 am

    New monk class added, which makes 4, diablo 2 came out with only 5 classes, so could be near release date.

  122. 122 gangsta Aug 23rd, 2009 at 3:35 am

    OMG i hate you blizzard u are sacks, hurry up and release the game, fix shit later in the game patches ive been feindin this game forever and i dont want to play any other mmorpg coz it shouild be ready soon. It would be funny if they released it and we were all so angry that it took so long and nobody bought the game and we all took a pisses on our computers and broke them ^^. This of coarse would never happen coz we will all buy it, but it would be funny if it did ^^

  123. 123 cam14 Aug 24th, 2009 at 11:29 am

    there are five classes the archivist, barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, and my favorit the MONK!! so it should be relesed around christmas early 2010

  124. 124 ME Aug 24th, 2009 at 4:41 pm

    GIVE ME GAME! I WANT GAME! GIMME GIMME GIMME!

  125. 125 Adrian Aug 24th, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    Where is the Necromancer? :(

  126. 126 Reppi Aug 27th, 2009 at 6:35 am

    I do not believe this game will be released this year, since sc 2 is now going to beta soon. Ask your self the question noone is competeting with them, so if they some how did release d3 they would only hurt there selfs. reguardless if they did make some killer sales buy releaseing two games at once. They are going to take a hit from WOW as well. just my own thoughts if sc 2 comes out before xmas or near xmas. you might want to plan on seeing D3 in the summer of 2010 or Jan. 2011, which is going to suck but I know the wait is going to be worth the wait.

  127. 127 knowsalot Aug 30th, 2009 at 5:49 am

    BY THE WAY

    there will be 5 classes includin wizard, barbarian, witch doctor and monk. But Archivist is not going to be a class, that was an april fools day joke by the blizzard entertainment team, so people wanting necro’s and pladen’s …………… KEEP ON HOPING!

  128. 128 knowsalot Aug 30th, 2009 at 5:51 am

    p.s.-i personally want a shapeshifting class and ………………………….

    KIRBY LOVE!!!!THEY WILL BREED THEN RULE!!!!

    (>*_*)> <(*_*<)

  129. 129 knowsalot Aug 30th, 2009 at 5:53 am

    OG GAWD NO!!!!!
    DONT WHIP IT OUT!

    ITS KIRBY LOVE FOR GOODNESS SAKE, eeewww that is just wrong

    !!!!CRAP!!!!
    you got it in my eye you cumbucket!

  130. 130 Jimmythefish Aug 30th, 2009 at 6:55 am

    I can see it being closer to summer 2010, The new class will prob be a healer, the archivist was a April fools, the sad thing is they wasted time developing stuff for that class for April fools, when they could of been finishing the game off, so we could finally play it.

  131. 131 dustin Aug 30th, 2009 at 3:36 pm

    d3 will be coming out in only a few days and ppl are saying its going to be p2p well their wrong d3 has always been free too pay and well stay free for d3 i get d3 e mails stright from blizzard corp so if any of you got any questions about d3 feel free to e mail me at dustin_warkus69@hotmail.com and if you like can send you some d3 e mails that they have send me since 2007 yes i know i keep them i love diablo

  132. 132 Joker_blazed_420 Sep 1st, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    I think you guys need to rush the release of diablo 3 WE ARE TIRED OF WAITING!!! haha

  133. 133 Shaine Robert Sep 3rd, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    This game is coming out march,11,2011 SO FRIGGIN MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  134. 134 Gugge Sep 4th, 2009 at 5:11 am

    i cant wait to 2011… i think ill find another game. how long time can it take to make a game? it have been up for release for like 4 years… thats just too long time

  135. 135 ********* Sep 6th, 2009 at 12:18 am

    I dont think they will release the game now not for another 1 year i think…. Besides they want the best inputs in their game but there are new RPGs and MMORPGs coming out which might have the same features of this gameby the time its released.
    If they have to release then it has to happen in a couple of weeks, cos i play MMORPGs and i have played alot, if u guys are interested you can try the Jade Dynasty which was released recently….
    Its an awsome game where u can fly and there are different kinds of mounts,pets and more its almost like WoW but better than it as i got bored of WoW…

    And this is for BLIZZARD :

    Hey guys if u guys keep us waiting for more time we might end up playing different games than D3, so release it sooner…

  136. 136 LoL Sep 7th, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    You guys are so hilarious. GIVE ME NOW!!!

    Get your head out of your butts. Blizz has always had a “when it’s done, it’s done” policy. This won’t come out until 2011 for sure. Who really cares? I mean, there are a lot of good games out there to pass the time until it comes. Wasn’t this game just announced this or last year? There have been rumors for many, but it was just announced. At least you know that when it is done, it will be good. Hopefully they nail down the health/mana system. The pot chugging was a little annoying :P

  137. 137 Dennis Sep 8th, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    A new rumor in a Danish newspaper says that it will be out today!

  138. 138 Kristian Sep 9th, 2009 at 1:22 am

    I just preordered Diablo 3… so blizzard have sent out info to retailers!!

  139. 139 Kristian Sep 9th, 2009 at 1:25 am

    This is the biggest danish game retailer, so somethings up!
    I just got the e-mail today that Diablo 3 is available for pre order.
    I was starting to believe that it wouldn’t be released before sometime 2010..

  140. 140 We got it! Sep 10th, 2009 at 5:12 am

    I can’t believe it! It really came out guys! After all our waiting I finally got my hands onthe game yesterday (9/9/09) and I stayed up all night playing it, it was so great and I have all the songs stuck in my head! I mean at first your gonna be like, how can this thing really have good multiplayer but when you get into it, it works out so much better then you would think!!! I just can’t believe they kept with their actual release date with something this big!! It’s like all the hype was actually true for once and to the makers of the game I have to say KUDOS! I could play this game for hours and hours at a time and those of you who use cheats GROW UP! you don’t even need them to have fun!! I’m so hyped I can’t believe I stoped playing to come to school, I keep humming those songs in my head over and over. I just cant wait till I get to go home and play it again. Were talking about the beatles rock band game right? Oh yeah the graphics are way too awesome by the way! ;)

  141. 141 cam14 Sep 11th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    shut the fuck up “we got it” you bitch its comeing out in early 2010

  142. 142 Marhsall Sep 21st, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    Sup every one, as I can see I’m not the first trying to post on this, but y’all guys will have to understand something Diablo 3 release date is going to be delayed as much as blizzard can. This is call make money. Blizz is a company, a company make money and they make money by selling games. It is what they did by selling 3 game between 97 and 2000. but something new called wow happen with a monthly payment and now they will keep looking for big cash cow.

  143. 143 Gugge Sep 23rd, 2009 at 9:28 am

    its ok that they is make a many money as they can by selling 1 per. year, but they just have to stop making all the relese dates…

  144. 144 Anon Sep 23rd, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    listen up fkrs,for those whos asking if its gonna be like wow p2p…the answer is ‘NO’. it wont be. b’cuz if they gonna do that to diablo they might aswell do it on starcraft,i know that blizz is nothin but a greedy sob of a company but i think they get enough money from idiots playing WOW lolz…and for those asking for the release date heres is the answer [DECEMBER 31 2009] yeah sucks only 4character that’is b’cuz like i said blizzard is greedy 2010 they gonna realease the expantion for added character mark your calendar fellas and happy diablo3 day lolz cant wait pwning ur azzz in new bnet :P oh yeah almost forgot you guys might be wondering how did i know the release date check the site such as gamestop.com or gamecrazy.com see thier upcomming games…..the beta is cmin in a month or so……..peace

  145. 145 SmackAttackFanOfD3 Sep 24th, 2009 at 8:45 am

    Hi I just notice that ASDA are advertising a release date for Diablo 3 as 27 November 2009…. you can preorder on their website :

    http://www.asda-entertainment.co.uk/games/platforms/pc/diablo-3/10042969.html

    I must say it cheaper to preorder from game.co.uk, but they dont give a release date… I ordered from game.co.uk figuring they are most likely to get the stock in first..

    Interesting though… surely a company as big as ASDA would not just pluck a release date out of thin air? They must have put in an order with Blizzard I would assume??

  153. 153 pangetda Nov 6th, 2009 at 1:56 am

    weeeee. as any diablo game is, it has good gameplay ^_^

  154. 154 c1rcus Nov 8th, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    diablo 3, or star craft 2, will come out 2015. aka never…

    Blizzard is making too much money on WOW. ALTHOUGH the money will go to the same company, D3 and SC2 are not month to month purchases.

    Its a love-hate relationship. Once once WOW numbers start to go down will they release SC2 and D3.

  155. 155 Towel Man Nov 10th, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    The reason why its taking so long is so obvious youve got to be a retard to not see it..
    They want to scramble as much money they can out of it, thus taking years of slow developing and plenty of fan fueled advertising while still keeping up the main thing that blizzard has and the most successful game of all time.. WoW…
    And dont tell me it aint successful, be honest and whoever has played this either hated it and put it down straight away or loved it and couldnt put it down. No joke cant put it down, like a drug it eats away even when you dont want to play you blow off everything too play it…

    Fuck the release date
    Just go play some other games while you wait, theres plenty of epic games out there…
    Diablo series
    Unreal series (just for the mods and online play)
    C&C series
    Borderlands
    TF2 & other Source related games

    I urge you to pick up one of these games

  156. 156 bibo Nov 14th, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    will be release on 2012?
    The world ends on December 21, 2012
    wtf blizzard??

  157. 157 Shendo Nov 30th, 2009 at 11:50 am

    first off WOW is the worst game ever
    second off you can listen o the guy that talked about WOW, play a different game it will make you not worry so much about htis games release date.

  158. 158 Xander69 Dec 8th, 2009 at 5:52 am

    I will say D3 Started Dev in 2005, 2010 is 5 years?

    Owell I would recommend blizzard not announce games so far ahead of release you are getting the ripple effect by dick teasing your fans, frankly if I don’t see d3 or star craft 2 before April of 2009 I will have lost interest completely.

    Chances are good after April of next year most will wait till its bargain bin.

    The longer this gets dragged on I come to two conclusions

    #1 the announcement of both titles was a PR stunt to create buzz for blizzard
    #2 The announcement of both titles so long before their release was very stupid move on blizzards part.

    In ending with all this dev time I expect something way better than dragon age origins.

  159. 159 xxpoffer Dec 9th, 2009 at 1:07 pm

    god i cant wait til diablo 3 comes out dose anywon know when that might be?

  160. 160 GRE Dec 23rd, 2009 at 5:46 am

    im not worried even a bit when D3 gets among us, blizzard know what they are doing and when the game will actually be available and they wont release till “they” are ready.

    all i will say is this….D2 was ok but got boring always having to restart after disposing of DIABLO. I havent been near the game in maybe 4 or 5 years and it will have to be a lot better 3rd time around to sustain my continual interest

    I am sure BLIzZARD are very aware there is lots competion out there if the game becomes boring like last time

  161. 161 waldo Jan 4th, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    If anyone’s having a doubt that this games going to be amazingly sick your retarded.

    They may have announced it much too early but who gives a shit. Marketing is a game and I think if Blizzard wants to tell us the game is coming out earlier than their supposed to all the power to them.

    Also on the fact that they have been working on it since 2005 either says two things: they are adding a lot of extra content or their was a problem when Blizzard North was closed.

    As for a release, I’m guessing either Q3 or Q4 of 2010 so don’t get your panties in a bunch and in the mean time I’m getting excited for a good game.

  162. 162 Mikael Jan 7th, 2010 at 12:44 am

    The release may have been delayed because of the people leaving Blizzard? Like Runic who made “torchlight”.

    They made the game very fast and it’s a mix of D1/D2 with the graphic quality of D3…

  163. 163 yo Jan 7th, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    blizz dont give a f#$*, they want to milk wow till its over then scrap diablo 3, i dont know how you can work on a game for 10 years and have 3 classes to show us, i wonder how much content they have just thrown away because its been 10 years and was based for computers using windows 98

  164. 164 pmm Jan 12th, 2010 at 5:15 am

    probable date of release 18 april 2010

  165. 165 FucKee tHe CirCus KloWn Mar 13th, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Im sure the game will be released, but as for anything beyond great content, dont be so sure this game was worth 10 years of waiting, not that I think any video game is, but think of it as good marketing, anything to keep you talking about blizzard, anything to keep you in the scope of theyre media, well its working rite now isnt it??? I feel sorry for some of you, I put my copies of D2 away like 5 years ago, and until tonight had completely forgotten about this game altogether. Dont get me wrong, this was an excellent game (D2), especially by means of storyline and character class and skill structure. Sure it could have used a few improvements like maybe selecting a point in the storyline to start at at will, or improving online play (adding new elements).

  166. 166 daultyn Mar 18th, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    bro u have too have diablo3 out today or i will come out of this screen lol!

  167. 167 baal Mar 21st, 2010 at 9:39 am

  169. 169 Fox Mar 24th, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    15? Were you even born when Diablo 1 was released? Your parents played it.

  170. 170 SCARR Mar 25th, 2010 at 2:48 am

    Just hopped on for a rant really… I am getting constant emails from scamming chink twats trying to steal my accounts. I hope all slanty eyed yellow skinned rice munching chinese twats get cancer and die.
    We dont need you… well apart from your kids making stuff for our nice stores 24/7 in sweat shops.
    A nuclear warhead or two should do it! what happened to the good ol days where we would bomb the fuck out of them and ask questions later?

    I wasnt racist until this morning but something snapped in me after the 1,000,000th email.
    I now hate Niggers, Paki’s, Japs and Chinks. the list is growing!

    I love Hitlers ideals! I want my country back!
    By the way, I am from the UK but I am sure you will understand due to the fact you have been so overwhelmed by niggers that you actually voted one into power and hes fucking things up big style!

  171. 171 AdiabloFan!!!! Mar 30th, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    I wish they release a demo before October… I’ve been waiting for this game for i don’t know how much time but i know it is more than 4 years….

  172. 172 darkskys Apr 6th, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    the reason blizzard wont bring it out any time soon cause there afraid there going to loose to many wow fans. well so wht if it better game then let the people chose dont keep it to ur self

  173. 173 diablo 3 release date Apr 10th, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    Oh come on where is the release date!

  174. 174 klik Apr 13th, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    its sad, diablo is pretty much the only reason anyone remembers the name blizzard other than a few fat guys who dream of space age bullshit that play starshit err i mean starcraft anyway.

    diablo made blizzard. nobody gave a good frosty fuck about warcraft 3 after a couple months. starcraft was full of maphack rusher goons from asia and i have never met anyone who actually like either game.

    they put diablo 3 on the backburner to make another world of shitcraft expansion. honestly what kind of fuckin idiot pays for wow for more than 3 months. after 3 months you have done it all and should by now figure out its a shit game filled with assholes, the pvp aspect is nothing more than a race to see who can either use a magic shield of various types repeatedly or get behind the other player to stun,backstab…..then the fact that your own faction seems to hate you more than the other side…and people actually pay for this? holy mother of god. even the original everquest was better than that shit. original development started for diablo 3 in i think 2003. or maybe it was 02. either way, isnt it about time they release a game that dont suck a cock the size of the average human leg

  175. 175 rofl Apr 21st, 2010 at 12:06 am

    When the heck will it be released in the Philippines? What did Baal steal it (lol) or did a Gargantuan Beast wreck the PC they saved it on? lol joking (obviously) but really when released in the philippines?

  176. 176 No more. Apr 22nd, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Fuck this man. We DO NOT Need another World of Warcraft expansion.
    We want diablo 3, Not some level cap increase in that pathetic, time consuming game.

    ‘Nuff said. Give me my game.

  177. 177 pre-order Apr 23rd, 2010 at 3:13 am

    well you can Pre-order Diablo 3 at gamestop now apparently because I did it for release date 12/31/2010 i think or sometime in december i don’t remember the exact date but they said december 2010 for sure. I can’t really gurantee that date though they could push it back so hopefully it will happen around Christmas time which would be nice but if its not ready by then they won’t release it because they won’t stop working on it until its the way they want it to be and I wouldn’t want them to stop until they are satisfied with it, but anyway just a heads up for anyone who wants to stop in at a gamestop and ask about it.

  178. 178 Jacob Fowler Apr 25th, 2010 at 6:15 am

    i heard that diablo 3 was coming out on 09-09-09 but they didnt put it out there, i heard that they might put out 10/10/10 also. either then or early next year not no longer. im still talkin to people trying to find out. you should hear back from me soon

    @D2(diablo2Lod)

  179. 179 Michael Apr 29th, 2010 at 3:38 am

    Blizzard… screw you lol. They take forever to bring shit out (speaking about patches for past games and shit like that), but i must admit, you have not dissapointed me EVER. Everyone, i beleive that when they do release it, it will be worth the wait. have fun playing diablo 2 for now =D i just got back into it in prep for when they finally do give us a relase date…

    ps: of course when they do give us the realease date im going to play diablo 1 and 2 like f*king craaazy. have fun =D

  180. 180 Russ May 18th, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    Intelligently thinking, I would say that based on Blizzards way of releasing games, we should expect Diablo III announced release date to be somewhere between May and November of 2011 or very late 2010. Why do I say this? Because it’s about as close as my brain can calculate based on their usual behavior on this and they already stated that it’ll be out after StarCraft II, which will be released on July 7th, 2010. The date of which I had typed this all out just now is May 18th, 2010. So I honestly think my predictions are as close as you’re gonna get, so what I said should be taken into account.

  181. 181 Sedge May 27th, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    hahaha Worst post ever.

    FAIL.

  182. 182 timothy mayberry May 28th, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    ive heard the release date for d3 is early 2011 about march or april but the expansion pack will be released in early 2012…

  183. 183 daryl May 31st, 2010 at 7:16 pm

  188. 188 qari Aug 5th, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    I cant wait to waste my life in this game

  189. 189 Rohan1 Aug 16th, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    I love all the Diablo games and cant wait as well, but I do hope it’s not like D2 now and have spammers and bots and stuff. like, its cool how u can just get a little somethin to help you out in D2, but I myself have only once bought a small charm and didnt really need to, I’ve just never been on an item website b4 and on my first time, spent a whole .25 cent. Lol. but yea, anyways, forget buying ANY items and just play it like it should be played, through and through like Diablo 1. I’ve honestly just started playing my diablo 1 and in 10 days, beat it with 2 characters. Im bored with my 2 godly accounts on D2, (though i still go on every now and then) and love to remember how playing Diablo 1 was like….. a game that u actually have a chance at dying and simple gameplay. long remember diablo games!!! (better than any other)

  190. 190 Rohan1 Aug 16th, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Oh, and it is hard to make everyone happy, like how you want to make the company good money but at the same time make the gamers happy… i would try to balance it out too, I mean, think about it, how good can a game maker be without some money to be spent on making the games? but you also have to stay true to fans. I think you guys are doing your best and I’d rather have D3 than nothin…Good Job guys! and thanks for entertaining us. ( I’ve only ever played Diablo games, never wow or “starcrap”, as they say, lol.)

    “Time To Die” -for all my D players out there ;]

  191. 191 faze comice Sep 27th, 2010 at 7:58 am

  192. 192 harvel Oct 4th, 2010 at 11:05 am

    They will release it Mars-21 2011 but it will be delayed so probably like june

  193. 193 harvel Oct 4th, 2010 at 11:06 am

    and the new class as Jay planned on is something near paladin / priest but they also planning on something like the druid

  194. 194 ii Nov 23rd, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    hehhehehehe
    i got the demo man!

  195. 195 ii Nov 23rd, 2010 at 6:44 pm

  196. 196 disscrunal Jan 4th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    thay have been saying that diblo 3 wil be comming out cince 2008 i wish that thay stop bullshiting us and just put it out

  197. 197 insaneclown Jan 10th, 2011 at 11:28 am

    warcraft sucks daiblo is alot better mother fuckers. can’t wait till it comes out.

  198. 198 Diablo Feb 12th, 2011 at 4:32 am

    Diablo coming out for Christmas 2011 y’all!

  199. 199 Xerlane Feb 25th, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    They haven’t been saying the game will come out since 2008…

    I believe what actually has been happening is the development of the game since then. I know there were early version of Diablo 3 some years before that but those were all gone and they restarted the whole idea.

    Amazing games take many years to develop and that’s what Blizzard does and they always deliver, unlike many other game companies that releases some bullshit game once every year or more often.

    Guess what, those stupid games last for a few months, and for me it’s often only a few days or weeks of playtime.

    Talk about a joke in comparison, show some patience my fellow Diablo nerds and we shall all be rewarded in hopefully this or the upcoming year :)

  200. 200 Dominik Mar 16th, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    It will vbe most certainly coming out at the end of 2011.
    Some people speculating about Blizzard not being able to fulfill this date, so it may be 2012.
    I’m really looking forward to it!!!

  201. 201 Garry G Villanueva Apr 10th, 2011 at 3:37 am

    Guys I been waiting Diablo 3 to be release so please let me know when it will be..

  202. 202 grace Apr 13th, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    me (and my dad) will be soo happy when this game comes out!!! i just love watching my dad play this game!!! awesomenessy!!

  203. 203 Jimmu Tenno May 11th, 2011 at 10:51 am

    I’ve finished Diablo II twice when I was in High school, and by the time I found out about this next game 3 years ago and I thought it was coming out soon. My Dad was still alive back then.

    I got busy with school so I was thinking by summer of 2010 (junior year) I could play the Game.

    Now, my father’s dead, it’s been a month after graduation, I even have a girlfriend now, and I have nothing else to do so I wanted to play again.

    I got to watch several videos of the game and I was so excited to know where to buy one, just to find out it hasn’t been released yet!?

    how longer would it take Blizzard? I’ll be busy again soon!!! damn..
    :-(

  204. 204 Mlakisto Jun 10th, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    I think Diablo 3 is just a BIG FAT LIE, a HOAKS, it doesn’t exist and might never. The people who made Diablo 1 & 2 are dead and the new guys can’t come up with anything. All the clips we see on the net were made by the real Diablo creators. But now they are dead and that’s all we are left with, just clips of what was supposed to be Diablo 3. It really looks like it was gonna be great, better than the first two.

  205. 205 Mif Dec 4th, 2011 at 10:16 am

    Hy there ….. Maybe you don’t understand I want Diablo III now .. They said it will be release at the begining of 2011 then at the end of the year 2011 now 2012…hey I am tired to wait so long …you don’t realy understand I’m a psyho, crazy.. with this game …I have many years of D2 Lod,I’v played all the the official and non official versions…I just love this RPG game, just release it once again….

  206. 206 - Jan 4th, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    OK, to the creator of diablo 3, YOU SON OF A BITCH, U ANNOUNCED IT SO EARLY SHOWING OFF UR STUPID GAME,IF ITS REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALY GOOOOD THEN I WON`T BITCH UP, WHAT? I DO NOT KNOW HOW HARD IS IT DO DO A GAME???? EXCUSE ME BRATHA, I`M ONE OF THOSE GUYS WHO DID MODERN WARFARE 3 2011, U KEEP FAKE PROMISE, BUT UR GAME IS NOT ALL GOOD ANYWAY, CAN U BEAT ALL THE CURRENT GAMES OF 2010~2011 LIKE BATTLEFIELD, SKYRIM ETC ETC, PLEASE, DON`T SHOW OFF UR STUPID GAME LIKE THIS, ITS NOT ALL THAT GREAT, UNLESS DOING QUESTS CAN TAKE U UNTIL FEW MONTHS TO DO. SINCERELY FROM AN EX-FAN OF DIABLO WHO IS PISSED OUT, DUE TO UR OBNOXIOUS ATTITUDE, I DOUBT THAT UR GAME IS NO BETTER THAN SKYRIM
