Diablo 3 auction house delayed


The auction house in Diablo 3 won't debut on May 22 as planned. Blizzard's community manager Micah "Bashiok" Whipple posted on the Blizzard forums saying the recent server woes have forced the studio's hand. We'll hear later when the new auction house launch date is.

If you were trying to log into Diablo 3 yesterday, you may have been unable to – the same errors experienced on launch day seemed to have resurfaced in North America and Europe. Whipple called out the achievement-earning bug – which either didn't unlock achievements for players or didn't carry earned achievements over multiple logins – as the culprit, and said Blizzard is working on a fix, though servers are all go right now. "We greatly appreciate everyone's support, and we want to sincerely apologize for the difficulties many of you encountered on day one," he concluded.
