Say Goodbye to Diablo III’s Auction House on Tuesday
After two years of controversy (and pain), the real-money auction house in Diablo III will be gone forever in two days.
It was closed back in March due to a number of bugs and exploits that had plagued it since its inclusion in the original PC release, but it was never completely removed. Anyone who still has items in the auction house must remove them by June 24 or kiss them bye bye.
At the Game Developer’s Conference in 2013, Diablo III’s director, Jay Wilson, said the auction house “really hurt the game.” Blizzard’s co-founder and president Mike Morhaime agreed, as did the entirety of Blizzard internally and many, many Diablo III players.
