During a conference call for Activision Blizzard’s fourth quarter earnings, Thomas Tippl, company CFO, has revealed that Diablo III will not make its expected early first quarter release date. Diablo III will instead be released in the second quarter of the year – though, no specific date has been given.
The mega-publisher has also revealed that there is a chance that they will release two games this year. Currently, Blizzard is hard at work on StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Blizzard DOTA, an expansion of World of Warcraft and an unnamed next-gen MMO.
Keep in mind that this is Blizzard, and the developer is notoriously known for releasing games when they think it’s done and not a day sooner. Nevertheless,this is just a possibility but I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.
