"Following the in-house alpha test, the beta test is the phase in which the game is opened up to a select number of invited players outside Blizzard for testing and feedback purposes. The beta test is expected to conclude shortly before the game's full release."

The intention of this line is to explain the sequence of events for this unfamiliar with the term beta. I find it hard to think of a sequence that does not fit that stated. The beta must end with or prior to the release of the game, and I can't imagine it ending such a long time before release that "shortly" is not a reasonable prediction. Betas for World of Warcraft, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm all conclude immediately before or a short period before release. I therefore think the "is expected to" is a perfectly reasonable position to expound. -- Taohinton (talk) 23:00, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
