Epic action-RPG Diablo III will not be released in February
. Rumors persist that the game is finished, but Blizzard will not launch it unless the game's real-money auction house, where players may buy their way up the loot ladder, can go live on day 1. The problem: it's been ruled illegal gambling in South Korea
, the home of Blizzard's hardest-core audience.
I've been waiting for Diablo 3
for ten years. However, Diablo 3 will now encourage players to buy and sell items for real money
, which means I won't be waiting for it any more. [RPS]
