GameSpot Reporting Diablo 3 Release in 2008

GameSpot's Most Popular games list is reporting that Diablo 3 's release date is set at December 31 2008.

I'm 100% sure that this is just a temporary placeholder.

I bet that it's going to be changed to 'TBA' very soon.

It just basiclly means that they could release the game today if possible between now and December 31st.

Yeah, has to be. I think it's illegal to drop that many fantastic games in one year. =P

Blizzard keeps it's "initial projected" release dates about as often as a drunk keeps 20 dollars in an ABC store.

True, however they only do that because they don't release broken games, if the games not ready they won't ship it.

Sorry, but you can parous their database and see plenty of incorrect release dates. This is just a guess on their part.

There's no way it comes out this year. Starcraft II and Wrath of the Litch King have to come out first. I doubt Blizzard would release two brand new games and one expansion back for its big IP's. A year to a year and a half is optimistic in my opinion.

It won't be out this year, it's got another year of developement, as has already been stated.
