We’ll be hosting our usual live chat during the August 3rd Activision/Blizzard Q2 conference call. (Register and you can stream the audio live.) These calls are fairly tedious for gaming fans, focused as they are on the financial details US corporations are legally-obligated to reveal, but since Blizzard often announces product releases and other key dates (such as beta start dates), they’re worth paying attention to.

    I don’t have any inside info on this (Bliz said nothing about the beta start ding last week’s media event), but I do expect that during this call they will announce a date, or at least a window when they’ll be starting the DiabloWikiDiablo III Beta test. And it’ll be soon, like within the next couple of weeks.


    Click through for the chat window; it will go live at 1pm, half an hour before the 1:30pm PDT, August 3, 2011 conference call. Activision/Blizzard Q2 Financial Conference Call can be seen here.

    Type your comment into the box. All reader comments are seen by the moderators. Clever comments are promoted so everyone can read them. We had 3800 people in the last chat, so it’s not feasible for everything everyone says to show up, or the text would scroll as quickly as if you were holding down your arrow button.

    Mike Morhaime usually speaks last, about 40m into these events. If there’s any Diablo 3 Beta news, it will likely come then.
