Diablo III now set to release in early 2012

Looking forward to Diablo III this year? Have you always been so optimistic? Following the release of the game's beta, Blizzard has decided the long-craved roleplaying game won't be ready in 2011, and has confirmed an "early 2012" date.

Note that Blizzard has never officially slated the game for 2011, it was simply hoping to release this year. It's not so much a delay as a case of Blizzard giving up on a very admirable goal. 

Blizzard hopes this won't damage its previously "sterling record of always hitting its release targets," and while fans will be disappointed, it's good to know that time's being taken to make things better. I will always rather have a game that's developed properly as opposed to a rushed product.

...And it begins
It's probably for the best
The original and Reaper of Souls across all platforms
Diablo finally sacks the Middle Kingdom
It's not like you were using it anyway
+100 percent buff
I mean, what else is there to say?
A higher Legendary drop rate
$60 on new consoles, $40 on old
They successfully transformed my opinion of the game
