The Mayans were wrong about the world ending in December 2012. Now that Blizzard’s given the Word of God that Diablo 3 is launching May 15th, I expect the economies of various countries to come to a grinding halt as people take leave, quit jobs, forget school, stop fighting, ignore the homeless, etc., all to jump on servers to take down whatever monstrosities are coming out of Hell this time. Except if you’re Russian, in which case you only get to return to Tristam on June 7th. Sorry to you guys.
More information here. Oh and, you can pre-purchase the game now.
