An Italian website seems to get some insider info from Activision about Diablo III release date 17 april, the whole media write about it and yet it need confirmation. The date could fit as Blizzard’s release date is rocked solid proven 6-8 weeks before the announcement which is expected in next week. However Blizzard might change the date now. I love this media stunt, how easily media buys it including us
Here is the statement from the Italian website here:
Activision has revealed Italy to several large retailers Italian release date, some yet to be confirmed at the world average by Blizzard but rather than trust, Diablo III. This would be the April 17, and prices are now set at € 54.90 for the standard edition and € 89.90 for the Collector.
Since the source is the Italian branch of the same publisher, I would say that after Easter to all the fans who are eagerly awaiting the release of the game will be more than positive. The rest of the dungeon crawler par excellence is almost ready for some time, and the latest statements have been conducted to art to increase even more hype.
