Blizzard to Korea: Diablo III "Is Nearing"

This trailer created by Blizzard for Korean gamers from a few days ago features Jay Wilson offering an optimistic outlook on when to expect Diablo III, their action/RPG sequel, saying "the release date is nearing." This was posted the same day they announced plans to change how many of the game's systems work, and the day before the game's senior producer left the company, so it's not clear how these different factors play into each other, if they do at all. Here's a fuller quote for context: "2012 will be a great year because the Diablo series will finally make its long-awaited return. We are currently working hard to deliver Diablo III and ensure it lives up to your expectations. We plan to deliver nothing less than an epic gaming experience. The release date is nearing, and we eagerly await your return as the heroes of sanctuary." Thanks Blizzplanet.

Something tells me that Jay Wilson made that announcement before they decided to rework major, major portions of their game. Knowing Blizzard, they'll want to test all these further streamlinings before releasing, so I wouldn't expect it for at least another six months.

Actually, knowing Blizzard, they probably made these changes months ago and just didn't tell anyone until now. They may be closer to release than we think.

That's possible, though people in the beta would have noticed, you'd think?

I've been in every Blizzard beta since WC3, and my experience has been that even their beta patches are weeks, sometimes up to a month, behind the developer build. Almost every beta they've had has gone through a major overhaul right before release, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they made those changes some time ago and just got around to patching them into the beta now.
