Diablo III Release Date Rumor is Sketchy, but Soon

Sunday, January 8th, 2012 by

There is a rumor that Best Buy has an endcap for a promotional display of Diablo III with a listed release date of “Feburary” 1 in the U.S. via this picture sent from a supposed Best Buy employee to Joystiq.

I am as ready for this game to come out as anyone, but I never believe the release date unless it comes directly from Blizzard. Besides, there are some sketchy curiosities about this image:

  • The actual release date listed is hidden by light glare
  • There is light glare in two places on the display (possible, but unusual)
  • The countdown timer doesn’t seem to make any sense whatsoever
  • The month of February is incorrectly spelled as “Feburary”
  • According to the employee, the release is February 1st, which is not a Tuesday

So, if this were an episode of Mythbusters, I would plausibly call this one BUSTED.
