Diablo 3 Release Date Announcment in 3 days

Diablo 3 Release Date Announcement in 3 days?

Posted by Murdoc - March 3, 2012 - News - 2 Comments

Jay Wilson answered a question today on Twitter about how close we are from knowing the Diablo 3 release date.

on a scale of 1 to 10, (1=not even close, 10=imminent,) how close are we to that all important #D3 announcement? :)
Jay Wilson: 9

I have a strong feeling that we will know the release date of Diablo 3 in 3 days. Why? In 3 days, Blizzard will be attending an event in Hannover, Germany, where people will be able to play the Diablo 3 beta and win all sort of prizes. By judging from the quote, a 9 tells me that CeBIT (the event is called that) is where the big announcement will be taking place.

What does everyone think of my speculation? Am I way off track or could this be it?!

    If we take into consideration the fact that the development on Diablo III began in 2001, and if March 2012 is the “9″ from the beginning of the development, we can find the value of “1″ by dividing the amount of time it took until March 2012.

    We assume that the development began mid-year which we assume to be June.
    (It is assumed that there is no reason to think that above assumption is incorrect)

    1 year = 12 months

    Approx. time past since the beginning of development = 130 months

    130 / “9″ = 14.44444…. *which keeps going*;

    so what we have here is a “Blizzard Time Unit (Wi)” = “1 Wi” = 14.44… months

    It is measured in “Wilson”s, named after the famous game director.

    What that basically means is that Diablo III will be “about to be released” precisely at May 2013, which is 10 BTU after the beginning of development. We still do not know how long a “Blizzard Imminent” takes. Based on data about “Soon”, our analyzers think that it may take up to a year. That and add or take five years, there you have the release date.

    I hope that this post has cleared things up a bit for all the readers.

    Thank you very much.

    ^ Lol

    I bet Jay Wilson just saw this and decided to release it just a little outside your prediction window. July 2018.
