Blizzard is known for releasing games when “they’re done”, so it’s no surprise that it’s been reported that Diablo 3 won’t be arriving this quarter. According to its 4th quarter and calendar year earnings, “The company’s first quarter 2012 outlook does not incorporate a new release from Blizzard Entertainment, but its calendar year 2012 outlook anticipates two releases from Blizzard Entertainment”. This means that the earliest we’ll be seeing the game will probably be in Q2 2012 but seeing how this is Blizzard, we’re not holding our breath.
Other interesting facts from the financial report is that World of Warcraft has lost another 100,000 subscribers, leaving 10.2 million active subscribers still playing the game. Speculation points towards Star Wars: The Old Republic as the cause of subscriber loss though it could also be the fact that some people might have already gotten bored of the game. Perhaps Mists of Panderia will be the expansion to bring some of those players back into the game?
