Diablo III Real-Money Auction House Gets New Launch Date

Posted on May 31, 2012 AT 06:31am

Diablo III’s Real-Money Auction House has been given a new tentative release date after being delayed twice already.

An in-game notification currently being displayed claims the RMAH will go live June 12. It was originally expected to launch May 22 – shortly after the game released – and was then pushed back to May 29, before getting delayed again, with no new launch date offered.

Several server issues and even a spate of character hacks have given Blizzard plenty to contend with since the game launched. The team simply can’t release the RMAH until they get all of the major bugs and exploits removed from the game. The last thing they want is people stealing items and exploiting the game to get good gear that they can then sell for real-money. If everything isn’t sorted by June 12 then expect it to get delayed again.

Do you really want the RMAH or are you happy with just a gold one?
