Vigilant Xbox users spotted that the beta page for Diablo 2 Resurrected on the Microsoft website and Xbox Marketplace posted a Diablo 2 Resurrected beta test start date.
The date appeared on Microsoft’s site for short while before being pulled but it stated that the Diablo 2 Resurrected beta would appear on 17 August. Before you go looking at your calendars, that’s a Tuesday and not a weekend.
A couple of days ago Blizzard’s CM Adam Fletcher posted:
There’s been some grumbling within the community about the tests taking place over weekends and perhaps they are having a rethink on the timing of the first closed beta test.
If they were to run over two weekends, likely dates would be 21st and 28th. This would give the team plenty of time to iron out any issues prior to the full launch on 23 September.
No doubt we’ll hear more about the Diablo 2 Resurrected beta test next week but this leak on Microsoft may indicate a change of plan with at least one test taking place during the week.
For all the Diablo 2 Resurrected info head to our Diablo 2 section where we have just added a whole load of new sections today ahead of the launch.
Thanks to avunaos in the forums for the tip.
