Closing up shop: Diablo III's Auction House is officially offline

0

Moving on

Diablo III's Auction House has seen its last new listing. As of today, the controversial marketplace exists only as a place for players to finish up their current auctions before the tab disappears altogether.

Players have until June 24 -- more than three months -- to claim any gold or items. After that deadline, they vanish into the ether forever and can't be obtained. At that point, all traces of the Auction House will be permanently gone.

Blizzard decision to do away with the Auction House comes as a result of the developers feeling as if it was counterproductive to the feeling that they were trying to instill with Diablo. "It became increasingly clear that despite the benefits of the Auction House system and the fact that many players around the world use it, it ultimately undermines Diablo's core gameplay: kill monsters to get cool loot," Blizzard's John Hight commented.
