Diablofans found a video by Jay Wilson, posted Jan 19, addressing Korean Diablo III fans. The highlight of the video is when Jay Wilson put extra emphasis in this line: "The Release Date is nearing".
A few days ago, the Diablo III Senior Game Producer reported he no longer works at Blizzard or on Diablo III -- prompting us to think the game is pretty much finished.
Activision Blizzard will hold the 2011 Q4 Results Conference Call on February 9th, where Blizzplanet speculates Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime might announce the approximate release date of Diablo III to Activision Blizzard (ATVI) shareholders.
