And I notice a lot of people are conveniently ignoring Itagaki himself saying "Dudes, chill the fuck out. Why are you guys so quick to trust some no-name website?"
To be fair, he didn't seem to fully understand the rumor (ie: nothing was absolutely saying Devil's Third wasn't coming to NA), primarily due to the fact that English isn't his first language or one that he seems to be terribly proficient in. Unseen64 isn't no-name either, and Unseen64 Tamaki has proven to be a relatively reliable source of insider information (from my understanding, at least). Even then, the Unseen64 report was right. NoA did drop Devil's Third, and the speculation that a different publisher may pick it up ended up being accurate.
To add on to that, the word of a hopeful dev for a game that is clearly on the road to being critcally panned isn't exactly golden, especially when they don't give further details when things seem to clearly be going downhill. Otherwise, for reasons I stated a few posts up, it still seems like Devil's Third coming to NA isn't a certainty. I predict that we won't hear more about the NA release of the game until a week or two after the European launch where we will either hear a release date, or we'll hear that the game is cancelled for North America, entirely dependent on how the game performs in Europe primarily and Japan secondarily.
