Blizzard Closing Diablo III Auction Houses
September 18, 2013
Diablo III was the fastest selling pc game, and it seems people burned out on it pretty quickly too. Blizzard is finally admitting part of what was ruining a game where the whole point is collecting loot is that said loot was too easily purchased in the auction houses. And so as of March 18th both the gold and real money auction houses will be shut down. It’ll be interesting to see if this change can help bring the franchise back to dominance when Reaper of Souls launches.
