Rumors: Diablo III Release Date and System Requirements

Website Kaputik has supposedly obtained release date and system requirement info from an insider working on Diablo III. As with all Internet rumors this is to be taken with a grain of salt. (Diablo III, PC)

I highly, highly, highly doubt that Diablo 3 will be released in 2009. Late 2010 at the soonest.

I'm kind of expecting it early- to mid-2010, with a Starcraft release each holiday.

But anyway, Blizzard never sets release dates very far in advance, and while I'm sure they have rough internal timelines I'd bet they don't even have dates set internally. I don't think there's any date that could leak that would be correct because Blizz simply hasn't set one.

OMG i wish!
I don't know about this tho...

I read someplace they want to do 1 big Flagship game a year... Starcraft 2 ... then diablo 3 ... then wow expansion.
on the other hand... Starcraft is 3 games... Diablo will get a hand full of expansions... sooner its out sooner expansions come...

Also there In the works of a new MMO n i wouldn't be surprised if they did a War craft 4 someday.

Plus with the growth of the company it wouldn't surprise me if we got multiple games a year.

With the Activision Merger i wouldn't be shocked to see Blizzard games go to consoles... Blizzard stated that they would be fine going to consoles if... the Console players will be playing with the PC players.

Why plastation hasn't got WoW yet is beyond me but... Mabey well get D3

I figure, if you can run WoW, you can run Diablo III. Obviously a higher-end PC will look better but Blizzard is good about getting the game to run and look good on lower-end PCs.

low requirments
I mean for a game releasing in 2009 or 2010 it should be at least 2.3 Ghzs required along with a good video card

This could be the worst rumor ever.

Edit: I'm pretty sure Starcraft 2 will come out this year. But no way Diablo 3 will.

I love the full game release date - Dec 24th. A freakin Thursday. Hilarious!

*raises a glass* Here is to hoping. But I'm not going to hold my breath, December is a long time to go without that whole breathing thing =/

I wish diablo 3 would be released on the ps3
Just add mouse and keyboard support.
Cheeseknight28  +   2453d ago
It wouldn't necessarily be "mouse and keyboard support," but rather "mouse and keyboard required." It sounds optional the way you phrase it, but maybe that's just me.

They can't realistically expect everyone who buys the game to go out and buy a USB keyboard and mouse (Assuming the person has none to spare), and there is simply no way this game can be worked with a regular PS3 controller.

On another note, just about any PC made in the last 6 years can run D3 and SC2, judging from the screenshots. The games look great, but they don't look like they need a beast of a computer to run.

If Diablo 3 was released on consoles we'd see only a fraction of the patches of the PC version. :/

Livin' in a dream
A dream I wish we all could be having. Starcraft 2 Episode 1 will for sure come out before Diablo 3, but then again, Bliz could surprise us.

They should hire more developers, and make the game for the consoles as well. It would be cool.. But still i will be able to run this game on my PC :D :D.

There is no point of buying a high end PC now, technology is moving forward all the time and we will see better and better hardware.

I dont really see the point in making those super fast processor when rarely any games uses the full power of those expensive processors and graphic cards..

If those are the PC specs, I might actually cry from happiness. My laptop would be able to run it on fairly decent settings!
Jonathan17strife  +   2454d ago
I sure hope it come out this year! I can't wait for it, looks so fun. But, I've heard late '09 to late '10 or I really don't know what to believe...
