Diablo 3 Beta News Coming Today

Diablo fans, start blocking off your summer months — the Diablo III closed beta may be right around the corner.

Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime will reveal details of the Diablo III beta on Monday, May 9th at 1:30 pm Pacific Time (4:30 pm Eastern Time) during the Activision Blizzard First Quarter 2011 Financial Results conference call.

On February 9th, during the Q4 2010 Results conference call, Mike Morhaime said:

As for Diablo III, development continues to go well, and we’re very excited about the game. (…) I’m looking forward to sharing some more news about the game and our upcoming beta on the next call.

And that next call is today, in just a few hours.

For those who don’t get what all the excitement is about, it was during the Activision Blizzard Q4 2009 conference held on February 9, 2010 that Mike Morhaime revealed an approximate timeframe for the launch of StarCraft II beta — which began on February 17th.

Eight days from announcement to beta.

Will some of us be playing Diablo III on May 17th?
