2 million attracted to Diablo III beta

Blizzard has dished out another number about its Diablo III beta that took place some weeks back. Next to having over 300,000 simultaneous players, the total beta participant count is now said to have crossed the 2 million mark.

Blizzard president Michael Morhaime threw out the number during Activision’s recent earnings call.

“We recently conducted an open beta stress test for Diablo III, where anyone could download and try out the game. The response we got was huge, with more than two million people worldwide participating in the open beta.”

Diablo III will launch next week, with having already warned of possible log-in delays due to expected heavy demand.
