Blizzard Entertainment announced today that a beta for its upcoming title Diablo III will be available sometime during the third quarter of this year.

The game is looking great,” said Blizzard head Michael Morhaime during Activision's financial results conference call. “A third quarter target would have beta testing for Diablo III launching sometime between July and September of 2011."

Currently, Blizzard Entertainment has not commented on a release date for this heavily anticipated title, but it would not rule out the possibility of a 2011 release. Director Jay Wilson recently told the New York Times that they were definitely in the “homestretch.” However, Blizzard also commented that it was planning on releasing two titles for 2012. Logical guesses are the second part of the Starcraft II trilogy, a new World of Warcraft expansion, or Diablo III.

Either way, fans can soon get some play time in for one of the most anticipated sequels on the PC since, well, Starcraft II.
