Diablo 3 external testing expected Q3 2011

In Activision's quarterly financial conference call today, Blizzard boss Michael Morhaime revealed that internal testing for Diablo III began last week, and that external testing is expected to begin in the third fiscal quarter of 2011.

We still don't have a release date for the anticipated dungeon-crawler, and they said that no new unannounced Blizzard games are expected in 2011. That means that new Starcraft and Diablo titles will be released when they're ready, even if that means they don't come out until 2012.
