To be honest I don’t think that’s accurate.
Putting this island forest together came quickly and fiercely, as our artists and designers were so eager to breathe reality into this zone that ideation and conception were completed more organically than traditionally.
It says in the reveal that Greyhollow Island was built rather fast. Unless you’re adding up nearly any single WoW expansion, Despite its initial struggled, Diablo 3 has become the company’s highestselling game ever. Seriously. Even if Lord of the Destruction continued being only one expansion for Diablo 2, given how well Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls have sold, it must be insane for Blizzard not to be actively crafting a second expansion for the game. With that said, kanai’s Cube and seasonal characters, as they’ve done.
So, that does not solve the mystery of what exactly Blizzard is doing best in order to do here with Greyhollow Island. Rather than spelled out in cutscenes or having giant enemies warp in and explain their evil plans to you, Though Greyhollow Island is part of Adventure Mode. Blizzard still has story elements in it that will have to be discovered by the player as they go.
There doesn’t is being a specific reason for Greyhollow Island to exist, unlike Kanai’s Cube.
It’s 10th of all time ahead of the likes of Grand Theft Auto, with 30M units sold.
It still blows my mind that between multiple SKUs for the base game and Reaper of Souls, they all add up to have made Diablo 3 amongst the highest selling games of all time. Part of it is thanks to the tireless work of Blizzard’s team, who over the past few years, has taken a game that was a mess at launch and patched and expanded it into honestly, one of my favorite games ever. Blizzard is likely to be working their tails off to keep players engaged with Diablo 3, a game which no longer even has a reliable stream of microtransactions the way it once did with the Auction House. What this does indicate to me is that a true expansion is coming in the next year or two, and Blizzard wants players to stay hyped about the game until so, if anything. Is unusual for a game without an enduring revenue generation system, they simply seek for people to… play, that seems straightforward enough. Rather than simply injected into the game as free content, It’s a completely new environment with completely new monsters, and feels like something that must be part of a future paid expansion.
There’s a major new patch coming in the type of 0 which has just been previewed this weekend.
