Diablo III Comes Early 2012Posted 8:27 am on Friday, September 23rd, 2011 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
As Blizzard extends the beta for the action role-playing game Diablo III, it has announced that the game will be released in early 2012. The beta was released recently on September 20th to fans lucky enough to get the invite. We were able to get a chance to play the beta, and although it didn’t give us anything mind-blowing, it was able to give us the good ol’ Diablo charm.
“With every game we make, the temptation is always very strong to launch as soon as possible. However, we didn’t put so many years of work into Diablo III to release a game that was almost ready,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “The beta test is going very well, and we look forward to making the most of the extra time we’re taking to deliver an experience that lives up to our vision for the game and the expectations of our players. Next year is going to be an incredibly busy one for Blizzard, and we hope an incredibly fun one for Blizzard gamers.”
Now that the beta has been extended, you can still try to get the chance to play the closed beta by checking out the account management on your Battle.net account.
