Diablo III out mid/late 2011, analyst reckons

In a research note sent out today, Lazard Capital’s Colin Sebastian estimates the release date for long-awaited action RPG Diablo III to land in the mid/late 2011 range.

The analyst expects the announcement to take place at BlizzCon later this week, which is where Blizzard plans to deliver ‘the biggest’ Diablo news; “I can say that this BlizzCon, in terms of Diablo news, will be the biggest one that we’ve ever had,” game director Jay Wilson promised some months ago.

BlizzCon kicks off this Friday.
