Diablo 3 will have a beta

Written by David Stellmack

Will be a closed beta to start with
During the BlizzCon event this past weekend, Blizzard confirmed that Diablo 3 will have a beta for sure before the title is released. The beta will be a “closed beta” to start with and may be opened for a wider open beta at some point.

Blizzard did not give away any additional information on the beta or when the company expected the game to be released. From the whispers we are hearing, the best guess is that the initial beta will be available to friends and family of Blizzard to start with, and then perhaps eventually an invite to a wider open beta later as the title inches closer to actual release.

"initial beta will be available to friends and family of Blizzard to start with"

WTF??? I'm sure this was another stupid decision from Bob Kotick.

Release the beta to people that really understand games...us!

Actually Blizzard has always had their first initial beta sent out to friends/family!

Perhaps it makes sense, as there are less leaks, if any?

Diablo 2 was the first online RPG game that got me so many sleepless nights. I'm sure this one will be too. Aside form GW2

Finally, I can't wait for this game. It's been way too long.

Most of the time I skip beta because I'll be spending all those time just to start over again.

Friends of people who work in Game Development: 99.9% Hardcore gamers.

Why is it gamers seems to think us game developers don't love gaming?

Do you also think movie directors hate movies?

Because you don't compare developers to directors.

A developer compared correctly to someone who works on set would be the one getting all the props, doing the make up, wardrobe etc... a lot of people ( and I should say mainly kids, who have never worked or have never worked at a software company ) have the impressions that DEVELOPERS create games from start to finish. Not at all, anymore, and not for the big game companies. Small indy companies are excluded.

You have marketing which will send over your customer requirements, and ideas. It's up to project managers and others to create ideas and give developers work. A developer writes code, simply put.
