The rumors have been flying on the release date of Diablo III, with it all aiming towards April. The date has still yet to be announced but the April release window is looking almost dead on since Blizzard is putting PvP on hold.

Stores like Best Buy have Diablo 3 posted for a February 1st release date, while others have the game posted for February 3rd. Everyone has still been kept in the dark on what the exact date that Blizzard is deciding to drop Diablo 3 on us, but I'm sure which ever day it is in 2012, Deckard Kain will ask you to stay a while and listen
