Diablo 3 beta expected this summer

During the recent Activision-Blizzard conference call on May 9th, Mike Morhaime confirmed Diablo 3 is on track for a summer beta. He also outlined the preliminary schedule. Alpha testing has already started (internal to Blizzard employees only) on the Monday before the conference call, May 2nd, but they are looking to start the external beta test between the months of July and September. No word yet on how many testers they are planning to invite. Stay tuned to your favorite fansites as Blizzard is sure to be sending beta keys out in a few months, and your best chance of getting one is winning a fansite contest.

These are exciting times for Diablo fans everywhere! The game is finally getting close to release. I’ll definitely be picking this game up on day 1, but hopefully I can get in the beta. I will start a new character update series if I do.
