Diablo III Release Date Tipped in the U.K.
U.K. games retailer GamePlay lists Diablo III being released on February 3, 2012, shipping in plenty of time for Valentine's Day, assuming your significant other would prefer a PC game to a box of candy hearts. Granted, we wouldn't want to bet the farm on a website listing, but there's also at least one Best Buy shop in the U.S. advertising midnight availability of Diablo III on February 1, 2012, a couple days ahead of the U.K. launch. A picture of the ad was posted to Twitter and later pulled, but not before Joystiq confirmed with the Minnesota location that it was real.
"A store employee politely assured Joystiq of the endcap's existence and noted the February 1 launch date, which will conicede with a midnight opening (at least at her location)," Joystiq said.
On top of it all, Best Buy's online listing shows the same release date. Go ahead and mark your calendars, one hell of a good time awaits.
