Diablo 3 Beta Release Announced

During Activision’s Q1 investor conference call earlier today, Mike Morhaime, the co-founder of Blizzard, announced that a Diablo 3 external beta would be released in the third quarter of 2011. So, if everything goes to plan, we could be playing Diablo 3 as early as July of this year!

There were almost no details revealed about the external beta itself. Considering Blizzard’s past beta releases (most notably Starcraft 2) and the large amount of online functionality Diablo 3 is said to deliver, they’re going to need plenty of testers.
