Diablo 3′s release date of 15 May is edging ever closer, and while the game’s launch will be the culmination of impossibly high anticiaption levels from fans, sales will reflect the hype according to numerous games industry analysts.

Wedbush Securities’ Michael Pachter thinks Diablo 3, which is available to pre-buy on Battle.net, and can be pre-ordered elsewhere from 10 April will have a particularly strong launch.

“I’m sure Diablo 3 will sell very well, probably 2 – 3 million the first month and 5 million or more overall,” he told NowGamer.

Eric Handler at MKM Partners thinks likewise, suggesting 5 million units shipped during Diablo 3′s “first quarter of release,” or by August.

Cowen & Company company analyst Doug Creutz was the first to suggest the 5 million figure last week, but it seems like an increasingly realistic figure for Blizzard’s action RPG, and will mark an impressive single-format launch if the developer/publisher can pull it off.
