Diablo 3 Release Date Pushed Back

During tonight’s Activision Blizzard financial call, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime revealed that Diablo 3 will now be released in Q2. Blizzard had stated that “early 2012″ was the release window but this new rough date takes it beyond what I would consider “early”.

We have implemented changes which will greatly improve the game experience and final release will live up to the highest expectations. We expect launch to be a big opportunity for Blizzard. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Blizzard CM Bashiok was quick to get on the community boards adding:

It’ll be fine. We’ll have some info real soon on skills and runes, a new patch, and we’ll be cookin’ on the road to Releaseville.

Can’t we just enjoy each others company?
