Diablo III Beta Almost Here; No NDA Required
Expect a ton of Diablo III beta photos and footage very soon. According to a Blizzard spokesperson who told VG247, Blizzard is "very close to starting the closed public beta test for Diablo III…You might start seeing some new reports about the beta client as we’ve begun limited external testing with employees and their families, and there is no non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for that. We look forward to sharing more info about the beta test in the near future. Stay tuned.”
That's not even the best part. In addition to the beta arriving soon, Blizzard is encouraging beta testers to share and talk about the game. Talk about a confidence. Is Blizzard so sure of their product that they aren't worried about fans reactions to potential bugs or problems?
As for the official launch of the game...well, Blizzard isn't committing to an exact release date.
"[W]e are still working hard to ship the game before the end of the year," said Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime last month. "However, we are not ready to commit to a release date at this time."
We can't have everything, but I'm sure all the beta information will keep me satisfied.
