Diablo III dated for May 15

Blizzard has announced that the ridiculously anticipated Diablo III finally has a set-in-stone release date of May 15, 2012. That, dear friends, is the day you can get your clammy and desperate hands on the hack n’ slash loot fest of your dreams.

Diablo III will be available at retailers in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. It’ll also be available to Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil, but digitally only via Battle.net.

Further localized versions of the game will be on sale a little later — June 7, to be exact. That’s when it’ll come in Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, European Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Korean, and Traditional Chinese. It’ll also hit Russia digitally at that time.

So there you go!
