Default 2011 Release Date for Diablo III is Blizzard's “Goal,” But Delay Possible to “Get It Right”

Diablo III's been in development since 1864, but the end is nearly in sight. Or is it? Blizzard's been hinting at a 2011 release date for a while now, but if we've learned anything from the PC powerhouse's track record, it's that the company's evil lair probably has two buttons: a giant red neon-emblazoned one that says “DELAY” and one of those indented things you have to press with a pencil point that says “release, I guess... if you feel like it.”

While speaking with Kotaku on the Interactive Arts and Science Awards red carpet, Blizzard's Rob Pardo was asked whether or not its slice of hack 'n' slash heaven would finally fight its way out of development **** this year. He replied:

"We really, really hope so. That's our goal. Our goal is to get there. But you know, at the end of the day, we are going to get it right. That's more important.”

"We're going to promise, we're going to get it out there when it's awesome. And, we're crossing our fingers, maybe it will be this year."

And if not? Well, you'll always be there for us, right, Torchlight II? Right?
