Diablo 3 beta this summer!

How is it that Blizzard manages to build up unreal amounts of hype for it's games so consistently? Seriously, they have this down cold (they even managed to get me to buy StarCraft 2!). Well, here we are - the next step for the Diablo 3 hype train - A summer beta has been announced!

"The game is looking great," Morhaime said during the conference call, "and we're currently aiming at a third quarter launch for external beta testing." A third quarter target would have beta testing for Diablo III launching sometime between July and September of 2011.

However... there is still no sign of a release date...

What Morhaime didn't offer was any sign of an official release date. "I want to be clear that we do not have an official release date or window yet," he said, explaining that Blizzard would not compromise quality to hit a release window. A slide accompanying the conference call did mention the company was "driving hard" to get the game released this year.

"Good things come to those who wait" seems appropriate here. I hope you all remembered to opt-in for the Blizzard beta program...
