Shortly after its launch in 2012 Diablo 3's auction houses was recognized as one the games biggest flaws, constantly criticized and mocked by the public. However, removing it wasn't an easy task and it wasn't because of technical difficulties. The reason for its sluggish removal for D2R Items was due in part to it was an envisioned feature of the game , which was printed on all of its retail boxes, and there were some legal issues about cutting it.
"The reason we couldn't eliminate it the moment we noticed it was a problem was legally we didn't think we could because advertising was on packaging," explained Wilson. "So we actually had to wait a while to figure out all the legal issues before we finally said 'OK, we think it's worthwhile to try it and if we do end up getting an action, but it's not that bad.'"
Incredibly, when it was done, Wilson states that the auction house didn't bring Blizzard all that much money In fact, should it have made more than 10 or 15 million dollars he'd be "surprised." And , while that might sound like an enormous amount it wasn't, that former Diablo 3 designer countered that World of Warcraft makes that kind of cash every few hours or more or less. A different dev who was on the panel joked that, just like the rest of us the game will "always blame lawyers." This is why people hated it and it didn't generate much profits. This was a total waste of energy for everyone concerned!
Diablo Immortal will introduce changes to make it easier to buy diablo 2 resurrected items players who are behind in their Server's Paragon stage to get caught up. the developer Blizzard has announced.
