Diablo III’s auction house is now officially closed

Posted on March 18, 2014 AT 05:08am

Diablo III‘s auction house officially closed its doors today, and is set to disappear completely on June 24.

At the moment players can still access the auction house in-game, but can no longer bid-on, buyout, or list new auctions on either the gold or real-money auction houses. All active auctions will expire as normal with items either being delivered to the highest bidder at the time of the shutdown or returned to the seller.

“The Auction House is shutting down. You must claim your items from the Completed tab by 6/24. Existing auctions will complete based on the time remaining,” Blizzard wrote.

“Players will be able to claim gold and items from the Completed tab in both the gold and real-money auction houses until June 24, 2014. Items and gold not claimed by this date will be consumed by Treasure Goblins, never to be seen again. Successful transactions involving Balance and/or PayPal will be processed normally and all usual fees will apply.”

The game’s first expansion, Reaper of Souls, is set to release next week.
