The Diablo community is eagerly awaiting the start date for the Diablo 3 Beta and although we have no exact date for the Beta to begin, we have some indication from Blizzard that the beta will get underway in Q3 (ending September 2011).
During Gamescom on 16 August, during numerous interviews with the development team, they stressed that they were still very much “aiming” for a Q3 beta.

The date was also confirmed as September release on 18 August.
While we have no exact date, the counter will be updated with the latest start date based in information released by Blizzard. So for now it’s set to the oldest date.
