Diablo III is coming. No, really. It is. Activision swears it is. …at some point.
Okay, we can be more optimistic than that. Activision Blizzard has released an earnings update , in which they confirmed that the long-awaited RPG does not have a launch date; the game is currently not on the release calendar for 2011.
But Blizzard president and co-founder Mike Morhaime tried to encourage the skeptics by saying the team still intends to ship the game before the year is out. They can't commit to a date but at the very least, some players will be able to test out the beta. Said Morhaime:
"Diablo 3 is still on track to go into external beta testing later this quarter. We are very much looking forward to getting the beta into the hands of our players and collecting their feedback for the final phase of development."
Morhaime says this beta phase will be very important for such a "complex release," and the bottom line is that the game will arrive when it's "ready for prime-time." Well, it can't be that far off. Right? Right?!
