Blizzard community manager Micah “Bashiok” Whipple calls the February 1 release date “speculation” by Best Buy, not an official date. “Retailers will not know a date until its officially announced through a press release,” Bashiok writes on Twitter, adding “We can’t really keep every individual retail shop from making up a date.”

NEWS FLASH!!! Best Buy may have leaked the release date of Diablo 3 as seen in the photo above. According to Joystiq, they have contacted a best buy representative/employee and have confirmed the said release date and poster as true but Blizzard stays mum about the said matter. What’s worse is that UK retailer Gameplay is listing the game for a February 3rd release.
This is a huge surprise to us PC gamers indeed if the said release date would be proven true. Stick around for further news about the said announcement.
