Diablo 3 Patch Coming This Week Says Blizzard

If you an avid gamer you have probably heard of the game Diablo 3 (or otherwise known as Diablo III).  Just released a few weeks ago, some are already calling it the best selling game ever.  However, with such popularity also comes lots of issues.  Upon release, some users had issues logging into Battle.net to play Diablo 3.  Battle.net is the game server environment created by Blizzard to run their popular games such as Warcraft, Starcraft, and now Diablo 3.  According to Blizzard themselves, a patch will be released this week that should address issues such as latency on the client end and also other bug fixes within the game.

Since the game’s launch, Blizzard has already applied a number of hotfixes that address gameplay issues as well as making tweaks to improve service stability.  Service stability was the biggest concern.  On launch day, users noted many issues with servers going down randomly.  Some users never seemed to have any issues with it but obviously a large portion of Blizzard’s customers did.  If you browse through the support forum on Blizzard’s Battle.net website you’ll see many threads expressing concern over not being able to log in and play the game.

On May 15th, Diablo 3 was launched setting a new record for PC games sold within 24 hours with over 3.5 million copies.  Within a week the total had grown to over 6.3 million copies.  Diablo III is the third installment to their very popular Diablo franchise.  It’s a dark fantasy/horror themes RPG (role playing game).  It just like World of Warcraft and Starcraft games released by Blizzard has become extremely popular due to it’s multi-player option that allows people from all over the world to play together.  Battle.net is Blizzard’s online network community they provide to allow players to play their games such as Diablo 3 online.
