Diablo 3 : Auction House 'Really Hurt the Game' Says Wilson

Posted Mar 29, 2013 by Suzie Ford

Shacknews is reporting that former Diablo 3 game director Jay Wilson has admitted that both the real money and gold auction houses ultimately hurt the game and weren't the best solution for what the team was trying to do. Wilson made the comments during a Diablo 3 post mortem talk during GDC.

He acknowledged that shutting down the auction houses was not as simple as it sounded, saying they did not know how many people actually enjoyed using them, and the company did not want to shut down a feature where players would be unhappy if it went away. He said Blizzard is working on a solution, but didn't elaborate.

What about you? Have you used one or the other of the auction houses? Let us know!
