Blizzard Entertainment had pegged Diablo III for early 2012, but as fans had started to suspect, the studio might not actually hit that timeframe.
Turns out that's true, based on news during the company's fiscal call today. Blizzard's Michael Morhaime said that the company is now targeting an April-June release window for the game. It will be accompanied by at least one other game--likely Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm or World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.
In other news, Activision Blizzard confirmed that a new installment in the Call of Duty franchise will be released in 2012. The company also said that it is working on Elite 2.0, with details coming in the next few months.
BTW Here's a video showing Diablo 3 with a darker color scheme. It works as a direct3d post processing filter, making the game look sharper, have less saturation, add a slight bit of a (silver) sepia tone, slightly lowered exposure, slightly raised gamma.
