Posted on January 4, 2012, CJ Miozzi South Korea May Be Holding Back Diablo 3′s Release
A spokesman for the ratings board said:
Committee members are conflicted about what to do with Diablo 3 because of Blizzard’s information on the game’s “auction house” feature.
Blizzard publicly committed to a simultaneous global, region-free launch for the first time in company history. In light of the Korean board’s hesitation, a spokeswoman for Blizzard affirmed that the company is still committed to a global release for Diablo 3.
With the first quarter of 2012 still the target launch period for the title, Blizzard has as rapidly closing three month window to meet their shareholders’ expectations.
Could the Korean ratings board be partially responsible for the delay in an announced launch date for Diablo 3?
