Online stores have began the speculation on possible release dates for Blizzard
Entertainment's sequel to the popular Diablo. EB World has set a date of November
2nd, while Software Etc./Babbages is saying late December. The latter date is
probably the more accurate of the two, however a representative of Blizzard
stated that a specific target date has not been set yet.
Update: Blizzard's Vice President, Max Schaefer launched an attack against
EBWorld and Software Etc./Babbages, insinuating that the two companies made up
the release dates, in order to avoid work. Mr. Schaefer stated, "The source of
the date is Babbages and Software Etc. Even if we did release dates, they would
not be the first ones to get them. The regularly make up such information -
probably to avoid having to answer questions about dates."
A company spokesperson later added that Diablo 2 is still expected to be launched
before the end of the year.
