Diablo 3 To Release in 2011?

Company President and Co-founder of Blizzard, Mike Morhaime has said that Blizzard will be pushing for a 2011 release of Diablo 3. This was stated in Activision Blizzard's Quarter 2 Conference Call last night.

However Morhaime did also say that Blizzard is not committing to a release date, amidst many other interesting things around the company.

"There are a lot of moving parts in putting out a complex release like Diablo 3," he says. "We talked about the new auction house technology which hasn't been fully tested. We're not yet in Beta, and really it's just going to come down to when the game is ready for prime time."

The Diablo 3 beta is scheduled to kick off during Blizzard’s third quarter, ending on September the 30th of 2011. Read more about Diablo 3’s Auction House features here and check out some recently released gameplay here.

Thankfully, Diablo 3 is in the last stages of development and as soon as the game launches into external beta testing this quarter, Blizzard should be able to put the finishing touches onto the game.

Do Gaming speculates that Blizzard might announce the external beta testing stage at Gamescom in Germany this month with a possible September release date and then the final game’s announcement at BlizzCon in October for a possible release of December or January. So all in all, not long to go now folks.
