New Treasure Goblins on the PTR
We’ve talked about the four types of new Treasure Goblins since three of them were debuted at Blizzcon last month, and shown some screens now and then, but I’ve seen all of them numerous times during PTR play the last week or two, so here’s a compilation.

Diablo 3 Still Selling “Very well” – Expansion Planned

Posted 8 Nov 2012 by

Blizzard Product Slate

In Activision/Blizzard’s latest Q3 investor financial call there was little in the way of new Diablo 3 information but DiabloWikiBobby Kotick stated that “investing in key talent in our top franchises is worth the wait”, following great sales of over 10 million for Diablo 3 which they reported in the last conference call back in August.  There was no update to those sales figures in this latest call so I would hazard a guess it hasn’t got close enough to the 11m mark just yet, perhaps by the next call.

DiabloWikiMike Morhaime added that Diablo 3 had  continued to sell “very well” riding the momentum of the launch back in May (3.5m in the first day!) and that the new changes to the game have been “received well by the community”.

In a final note, Mike confirmed an DiabloWikiExpansion pack will be developed but they have no timeline available for release as the “quality” will determine the release schedule.   Long time visitors will remember the product schedule slide supposedly leaked from Blizzard China back in December 2010.  That showed the first expansion releasing in the 2nd quarter of next year but even the most optimistic of you won’t be placing bets on that I hope.

At this stage we can only speculate what it will consist of but a new Act would no doubt feature, but we have PvP/1.1 to look forward to first.

World of Warcraft continues to hold its own with over 10 subscribers, up from 9.1 last quarter no doubt boosted by the release of Mists of Pandaria
