Diablo III “in the home stretch”

Diablo III may see a 2011 release date after all, if comments from Blizzard to the NY Times are any indication. Game director Jay Wilson spoke to the publication, and when asked about the long-anticipated sequel, remarked that, “We’re definitely in the home stretch. We’re crunching. This is when the magic happens.”

Blizzard has yet to confirm a release date for the title because they did not want to “disappoint” their fans if that date was not reached, or if quality was sacrificed in order to meet the deadline.
