Default Diablo 3 PVP dropped.

When a release date is nearing and a crucial game feature is falling behind, what is a studio to do? If you're Blizzard and you're looking at the fate of one of the biggest titles of the year, you yank the offending feature from the game so as to not delay the entire product.

Blizzard announced today that Diablo III's PvP is not living up to the studio's standards and that it will be removing it for now in order to keep the game on track for launch. So why not just hold back the game until it's completely ready? In the words of the studio, "We ultimately felt that delaying the whole game purely for PvP would just be punishing to everyone who's waiting to enjoy the campaign and core solo/co-op content, all of which is just about complete."

Diablo III's PvP functionality will be restored at an unspecified later date with multiple Arena maps, achievements, personal progression, and a matchmaking system.
Any guesses on how much this DLC will cost us? You know their not going to provide it for free... They will make some bull**** excuse like they did with Starcraft, "oh we just had some much content that we had to make it a separate product!" This is thanks to all those who bought that 1/3 game called Starcraft 2.

Starcraft 2 on it's own is awesome. Not sure who really bought that game for SP anyways.

Personally I think it's inevitable. Sooner or later games will have 2 separate pieces to pay for (if not more) - SP and MP and I wouldn't be surprised to find that one won't work without the other. It's their way of saying "Look over here, we're not raising the price of a game, we're giving you 2 games!!!".

Capitalism requires perpetual, unending growth no matter how improbable, impractical or impossible that is. If you made 300 trillion in profit this year, 299 trillion in profit next year is unacceptable. They have a shrinking market and it couldn't possibly be the quality of the games (see 'if they made castle wolfenstein today' video) ... it's someone else's fault and therefore they have to come up with gimmicks.

The sad part is I know a few people in the industry and while the Gaming Software companies are looking to make more and more and more they clearly don't feel the need to have any of that trickle down to the people that actually put the work into making the games.

Didn't Starcraft 2 have just as much content, if not more, then all 3 campaigns combined of the first one? At least that is what I keep on hearing. So it would not be fair to call it 1/3 of the game, when it has just as much if not more then the first game.

Not even close. Starcraft campaign is maybe 2 or 3 times longer from what I remember.

I can't see them charging for it later. They promised features in WoW that were patched in later for free. They have added a lot of free content for WoW in between expansions.

SC2 was awesome what are you talking about? I mean, come on, they have a right to charge for an expansion pack.

Blizz does not do DLC. They do microtransactions and will also be pulling in money from the real money auction house. They do expansion packs but PVP is not an expansion pack. It will continue to be beta tested and released as a patch update when it is ready.

Clearly you havn't spent enough time playing wow.

No PVP is a big enough strike against them - no PVP and STILL no solid release date, completely shoddy of them.

Lol, as if anyone else is doing any better pvp? I can't blame them for wanting to get it right the first time... if that's shoddy then bring on the shoddy games!
