Diablo III Tells Auction House to Go to Hell


Diablo III’s auction house is being sent to the bowels of hell, suffering the same fate as the Virtual Boy and any hopes you still have for the Last Guardian.

In the video message below, Blizzard Entertainment announced Wednesday that it will be shuttering the digital auction houses for Diablo III, citing the need to make getting epic items feel like an accomplishment and that “the auction houses made that experience way too convenient and really short-circuited that core reward loop.”

Blizzard will be ending both the real-money and gold auction houses March 18, 2014, so you have the next six months to try to figure out what an auction house is before it goes away.
