Blizzard announced a while back that Diablo III would launch some time in quarter two of 2012, which means it will launch some time between April and June of this year.
Now it would appear that we may have a possible launch date, the 17th of April, of course this launch date has yet to be confirmed by Blizzard, but according to a recent report some major European retailers have been told to ensure they have shelf space ready for a new release on the 17th of April.
Blizzard game director Jay Wilson recently confirmed on Twitter when asked by a fan that the launch announcement was imminent scoring it 9 out of 10, where 10 means imminent.
Of course we will have to wait for some sort of official announcement to get the release date confirmed, but we suspect the release of Diablo III will be earlier in quarter two rather than later.
