Diablo III will be released in the “near future”, game director Jay Wilson has said.
Responding to queries over recent delays of the action role-playing game, the Blizzard Entertainment man said fans would know “as soon as I know”.
Speaking on Blizzard’s forums, he said: “The latest full build we’ve been testing here in the office is in great shape. We get a lot of sympathy from the other teams because of the long hours of crunch our design team is putting in, but the secret is that playing through the game as we do final tuning, bug fixes, and optimizations is a real joy.
“We think you’re going to love Diablo III when it’s released, and speaking of release plans, you can seriously expect a launch-date announcement from us in the near future. See, I didn’t say ‘soon’, so I’m not taunting you. You’ll know as soon as I know for sure the exact date.”
The game is currently scheduled for release during Activision Blizzard’s April-June 2012 quarter.
