Activision Blizzard, the parent holding company of Blizzard Entertainment give some info about the Diablo III beta in its first quarterly earnings call in May 2011, so many folks were hoping for more definitive information about the actual release date in the earnings call for this second quarter.[1] The heightened expectation was increased by the official announcement of the start of public Beta testing recently.[2] Unfortunately, Mike Morhaime could give no dates and only vague assurances that the company was attempting to make a 2011 release date, but could give no promises.[3] Assuming Blizzard is trying to keep up its string of quality releases of major titles, not committing to a date is not unusual, but for the many players who have been waiting long years for the release, the lack of guidance is disappointing.
