Is Diablo 3 coming February 1st?
Best Buy thinks so…
The last official word we got from Blizzard about the release date of Diablo 3 was “early 2012″, without specifying a day or a month. However, we now have reason to believe that release date will be Febraury 2012. A Minnesota branch of Best Buy recently put up a banner for the game, which gave a February 1st release date, and a picture of the banner was tweeted by a Canadian Twitter. The tweet seems to have been taken down, but Joystiq acquired the picture.
To add fuel to the fire, Best Buy’s webstore also states the release date for Diablo 3 as February 1st. Furthermore, UK retailer Gameplay has the game’s release date as being February 3rd. So, this sounds pretty legit.
