So when does the Diablo III Beta end?

  • #1
    So I was just wondering when the Diablo III Beta will end. I'm seeing more news for this game everyday and more contest to get into the beta, but nothing about when the beta will end. So anybody have an idea of when?

    And when the beta does end, will this be a joyful day, or a day of great sadness?

    I read there would be some kind of demo.
    Maybe the beta will end soon before the release.
    We'll know the release date before that I guess...

    They usually shut down a Beta just prior to release. So, my guess is that if we were to get a release date this week (doubt it, but anything is possible) the Beta should still be open for the next 5-7 weeks. After that there would be no Beta for a week or two, and then release.

    Releasing the game is good. Thus ending the Beta is good. I'm sure some will feel frustrated, because they don't have access to the Beta and have to wait a week or two for release.

    I pray they give us a release date this week, but I doubt it too.

    I think it will end somewhere very near to the release date, like 2-3 weeks before, what do you think ?
    As I remember, it has been like that with blizzard beta's in the past.

    For me it will be a good day, because it means the game will be out very soon when it ends, if i am right about the 2-3 weeks that is :)

    Heard somewhere that the beta will run right up to release time, or very close to it.

    I think when they do announce the release date the rampant and desperate attempts to get beta keys will subside as people will see an end in sight.

    I'm still hoping for a key though, it's just not the same watching it through others' eyes.

    I could have sworn that this was mentioned somewhere. Someone, possibly Bashiok? commented on the fact that Beta would end, and release would occur 2-3 weeks after that.

    So the end of beta is a gooooood thing.

    An even better thing would be a release date. Let's do this thing, am I right? Can I get an Amen?!?

    I think the Beta will end in about a mouth or 2. And with that being said it might end with patch 16.

    That would be nice if they did run the beta that long. I want a key too. I've seen so many videos, I know the beta inside and out lol

    First of all, none of you have any information about the beta ending. There is no information in that field yet. But If you compare the other Blizzard games, the beta have ended 1 or 2 weeks before release. I do also believe that the beta ended one month before Cataclysm got released.

    So you can calculate that there is a chance for the beta to end 1 month maximum, before the game get's released.

    Yes thank you so much.

    Bashiok, who is I believe who I was quoting, had given the estimate of 2-3 weeks based on other Bliz games/betas.

    The estimate is exactly that, an estimate. No one knows when the beta will end, obviously, or the OP probably wouldn't have asked the question.

    Thanks again for the insight. Very helpful.
