European websites are
reporting that Activision has hinted strongly at an April release for
Diablo 3. CVG says that Amazon Italy listed the title as releasing
on April 17 (at time of writing, no date's attached to the game), and
Italian MMO hub MMORPGItalia reports that stores are readying shelf
space for the title following a tipoff from Activision/Blizzard.
While Blizzard's Jay Wilson said he “could not debunk or confirm” the April 17 rumor, the
company's expected to make an announcement regarding the title at
this week's CeBIT expo in Germany. Asked to rank the likelihood of
the company dropping a release date at CeBIT, with 1 being no word
and 10 being a flat-out confirmation, Wilson simply told fans, “9.”
And if that's still a little vague for you, we've still got Diablo 3 beta keys to give away...
