Hoping to play Diablo III before the end of the year? Sorry, the game has slipped to 2012. According to Blizzard CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime, the Diablo team met this week and decided that it couldn't have the game ready for December. As one might expect, Blizzard wants to ensure that the title meets expectations, which are understandably high given the success of previous chapters in the franchise.
The developer is apologetic for the delay, and it's also offering a reprieve for those taking part in the Diableard challenge, which asked fans to grow epic facial hair until the game's release. First, gamers started invading sport bars to watch StarCraft matches on so-called Barcraft nights. Now, they're growing the gaming equivalent of playoff beards. What's next?
