Blizzard CEO To Speak on Diablo III Beta Today!
Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime has announced that he will be dropping new info about the upcoming Diablo 3 beta at the latest Blizzard earnings call, happening tonight. Blizzplanet notes that Morhaime promised incoming Diablo 3 beta news last month, saying “development continues to go well, and we’re very excited about the game … I’m looking forward to sharing some more news about the game and our upcoming beta on the next call.”
In 2009, Morhaime announced the start of the StarCraft 2 beta at a Blizzard earnings call, and the beta started just days later. Fingers crossed that something similar will happen this evening. The call is scheduled for 1:30pm PDT.
Edit: Information Received – Nothing New but Nothing Changed
Although nothing really new was told at the meeting, it seems almost certain now that Diablo III will be released in full version at the end of 2011! It also seems the beta testing period will be lasting for about 6 months before the game enters into full release mode.
Put those two bits of data together and you get the idea that the beta release is just over the horizon. We anxiously await E3 and Blizzcon to see what new information might pop up and end this mystery date debate.
