Blizzard Entertainment has delayed its expansion pack for the action-role-playing game Diablo III until next year, GamesBeat has learned.
If this comes as that big a shock, you haven't been paying attention for very long.
...Had they even announced the expansion pack yet?
Nope. They delayed the non-existent.
Interesting. I wonder how the players feel about this.
I don't feel anything much, I still play D3 once a week or so and still enjoy it, maybe they're delaying it so they can have simultaneous release across all platforms including the new consoles. If PS4 is getting Diablo III as well as The Elder Scrolls Online I'll probably get both when I buy the console...which given the state of my finances will most likely be next year anyway.
'The delay is a big deal because expansion packs can generate a lot of revenue for the company' Unless you're Blizzard, and you know that your customers appreciate quality and are willing to pay for games that are released when they are actually ready.
LOL! Which is the EXACT OPPOSITE of the unfinished state that Diablo was released in.
Yeah, this is the first I'm hearing about a Diablo III expansion. Blizzard's motto is "it's done when it's done," anyway, so ... are we really surprised?
I think I made it to like level 25 before I dropped the game as a monk. I got tired of getting gear for a class that wasn't mine.
