Rumortoid: Diablo III release date and specs leaked?

You want it. I want it. God, anyone with a brain should want it, because Diablo III is going to be the hottest thing for PC gamers to hit in some time, and I can’t wait to mindlessly kill things again in true Diablo style. We’ve all been wondering when we might get our hands on it, and Kaputik had rumored news on it this morning: not just dates, but specs as well! This information was from “associates working on a Diablo 3 game design”, so it’s hard to say if it’s reliable … but I’d guess it likely has some truth to it.

According to this source, a September 11th release has been set for the online multiplayer beta trial version, while the game itself will be released on December 24th — Christmas Eve! Hey mom, I’m not coming home this year for Christmas, just so you know. Sorry!

You can find the specs after the jump, which aren’t quite as extreme as I was originally fearing. I know my poor little laptop won’t run the game, but if these rumors hold any truth, I’ll have plenty of time to build something that will before December. As soon as we hear official word from Blizzard confirming these dates, we’ll be sure to keep you informed. Excited yet?
