Speculation is rife as we draw closer to BlizzCon 2021 this weekend, and the rumours are many, especially around the “What’s Next” panel for Diablo. One particular possible hint that a beta might be incoming, as recent sightings of changes on the Alpha/Beta access help screens have been noticed.

Reported by BlizzPlanet, they shared screenshots of the beta access page, which have recently updated. This comes as quite a coincidence as BlizzCon is kicking off this weekend. Could Blizzard be ready to announce details of a beta for Diablo 4? The pages updated include Diablo IV, Diablo: Immortal and World of Warcraft.

While we already know Diablo 4 won’t be launching anytime soon, not this year at least according to the recent Activision Blizzard earning’s call earlier this month, which confirmed a launch would not be this year. An announcement of a beta, which doesn’t even happen soon, a release window perhaps could be on the horizon.

The pages unfortunately don’t give any more clues about how close we might be to a beta testing program, but it does show us it’s on their mind. By checking the Google cache is shows the pages have been updated as recently as February 15th.

Supposed leaks of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade coming to classic, Diablo II Resurrected, Diablo: Immortal release date, mobile announces possible Warcraft Pet Battle game, Overwatch 2 details plus new class. There is also speculation of a new area reveal for Diablo IV.
