Blizzard announces first Diablo III patches and delays the real-money auction house
Diablo III’s first week hasn’t been an easy one. With an overwhelming number of server issues, rumored battle.net account hacking, and the slow start of the game’s real-money auction house, this launch isn’t going too well on Blizzard’s side — though Diablo did sell 3.5 million copies on its first day.
Blizzard community manager Nethaera revealed several upcoming patches through a post on the Diablo III forums. The first patches will address client issues and apply more fixes to the ever-present bugs in the game. Blizzard has already rolled out numerous hotfixes, or small patches, to help balance out character stats and overall game performance, but this patch will focus on general game stability and larger errors.
Unfortunately, players who lost achievements due to bugs will still have to wait for a fix as Blizzard looks for the best way to address the issue. Stability comes before achievements, folks.
