Vote: The Biggest Current Issues with Diablo 3?
Checking the blue tracker today and a reply from Lylirra caught my eye. I thought it would make a good topic for a vote, so I read over the first ten pages, tabulating how often specific complaints came up. Of course more replies treated the “single biggest issue” part like old people treat the “ten […]
Diablo 3 Seasons: Endings, Beginnings, and Scheduling
Almost everyone on my friends list and in the IncGamers HC West clan is playing Seasons now, so conversation has been focused on that reality. How long will Season One last? Are Seasons going to run a consistent amount of time? How much warning will we get before one ends and the next one begins? […]

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
