Diablo III beta is coming, hopefully will go public

Diablo fans waiting for the third game in the beloved action-RPG series might have something to whet their appetites soon. That’s because Blizzard’s lead designer Jay Wilson announced at BlizzCon that there will be a beta for Diablo III.

Although the news as of now is that the beta will be closed to all but Blizzard insiders, it is not uncommon for closed betas to eventually be open for public enjoyment. If that happens, fans will be able to try out Diablo III prior to its potential mid/late 2011 release.

So yes, odds are that if you are reading this, then the real news will be when the beta is available to everyone. At least this is a step in that direction.
