Blizzard has delayed the long anticipated sequel in the Diablo series until early 2012. Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime posted the following on his blog: commonly use the term 'soon' when referring to Blizzard releases, because we know that no matter how hard we're working to reach a target, we're not going to compromise and launch a game before it's ready," he wrote. "For Diablo III, we were aiming to launch by the end of 2011."
"While this news might not be a complete surprise, I know that many of you were hopeful that Diablo III would ship this year. We were too. However, this week we pulled together people from all of the teams involved with the game to decide whether we felt it would be ready before the end of December, and we grudgingly came to the conclusion that it would not. Ultimately, we feel that to deliver an awesome Diablo sequel that lives up to our expectations and yours as well, we should take a little more time and add further polish to a few different elements of the game."
