    Activision Blizzard investor call reveals it's now targeting Q2, that means after april to around july.

    GG :nutkick:

    I had a great 6th sense last few days, i totally didn't knew about it but i was just expecting it there will be another delay that's because this is how blizzard makes great games. How can this be better when this news comes in a great snowy morning, even if it's bad news it's still feels good.

    I am especially happy just because now i see how many people will be pissed off by this and that is ... somehow ... (no offense) ... enjoyable :p

    Im used to waiting just as i lost my mind over Rage patch and mod tools almost but i will not make the same mistake taking Carmacks words 100% on time ("relatively soon" == +5 months) ... will 99%.

    I don't mind it as I know it will come out exceptionally awesome just like Starcraft 2 did.

    It happens when you decide to make massive overhauls to the game a month or so before the expected release.

    That and having the lead designer become the lead resigner.

    How is it delayed again? Bashiok said early 2012 in blue posts, and no concrete date has ever been given.

    I have never played Diablo. I mean never. So i don't particularly care if it's delayed.

    Who cares? The OP is as childish as they come to get happy over the fact that some might get angry at the delay. What is more childish is that he is under the impression the TPU community will be moved enough. This game has been delayed so many times no one even cares anymore. Just like serious sam. Months ago I decided to stop checking news feeds and that diablo 3 will get here when it shows up in steam no earlier. Honestly I think this thread has much less of an impact than you anticipated because people just dont care enough anymore.

    Blizzard is due to have a game fall flat on its face.. and D3 is starting to look like its gonna be the one. The rash design changes this late in development, constant delays, key members leaving the team. All screams of a mess of a game.

    IS there further reading about this somewhere? I don't follow game news so I'm kinda out of the loop, but it sounds bad.

    And I think the game will sell well either way btw. :p But yeah, I don't think they have ever made a bad game to be honest.

    Wow, I never expected this kind of childish behavior on TPU of all places. I don't see how Solaris was ranting at all, if anything he was stating that the game has been delayed multiple times and this news does not come as a shock.

    Also, have you even played Diablo 3? I'm in the closed beta and can tell you its easily the best of the 3. The quality of the game is astounding and I see nothing wrong with changing the game around, even this late. If it works, it works. So please, both of you, go troll somewhere else.

    I was looking forward to D3, but being always-on internet was a deal killer for me due to my poor connection.

    Lets rush a unfinished game, if they delay I am sure they have rash reasons to do so

    I got the beta recently. It is quite enjoyable. And as much as I want the full game right now, I can try and be patient to make sure they do it right.

    Im unsure if it's better than diablo 2 or not. I like the level design a lot better, not just a bunch of square areas. Lots of neat abilities. The thing Im unsure of is what the difference will be between my wizard and your wizard. You learn all the skills as you level. You just change which ones you have equipped, and what passives you have equipped. After level 30 you start unlocking runes which add traits to abilities. But not sure if that will make it different enough. Back in diablo 2 you could specialize in blizzard or frozen orb or meteor or lightning. Now it kinda seems like cast whatever u want. But as we max at level 13 on the beta, I can't say for sure.
