    We’ve been covering Activision/Blizzard’s quarterly financial report conference calls for the past few years, and occasionally learning something interesting. There were high hopes for a Beta start date during the last one in early August, but we just got the “3rd quarter” window again.

    It hasn’t been anywhere near three months since that last one, but they’ve got another extra-long one scheduled for next week.

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATVI – News) today announced that members of senior management, including Robert Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, Inc., will be giving a corporate presentation at its analyst day event on Thursday, September 1, 2011 from approximately 9:15am Pacific Time to 1:00pm Pacific Time.

    The presentation will be broadcast over the Internet. To access the webcast, please log on to http://www.activisionblizzard.com.

    Life is way too short to listen to 3.5 hours of Activision financial disclosures and DiabloWikiBobby Kotick pep talks — the 45m versions we get during the quarterly conference calls are hard enough to sit through — but I suppose it’s at least theoretically possible that we might get some news about the DiabloWikiDiablo III beta during this presentation. Anyone can listen in via the live stream, once you register an account on the Activision investor’s site, so we’ll find out soon enough.
