Well we knew it was going to happen but at least now it is official. Blizzard has finally announced that Diablo 3 has been delayed until first quarter of 2012. I don’t blame them either. I’d rather the game be the best they can make it to be versus being a buggy release and have to release a ton of patches… right Dead Island?
With every game we make, the temptation is always very strong to launch as soon as possible. However, we didn’t put so many years of work into Diablo III to release a game that was almost ready,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “The beta test is going very well, and we look forward to making the most of the extra time we’re taking to deliver an experience that lives up to our vision for the game and the expectations of our players. Next year is going to be an incredibly busy one for Blizzard, and we hope an incredibly fun one for Blizzard gamers.
