Blizzard often send out email surveys to find out what gamers think of their games and the service they are currently providing. A survey being sent out just now is asking “How Interested would you be in playing a second Diablo 3 Expansion.” Various devs have stated on quite a few occasions there will be more than 1 expansion to Diablo 3, so it’s not new news to you guys.
It struck me as quite a strange question. Why would you ask the question if you didn’t want to see what the consensus is and if you want to see what the consensus is does that suggest it might have some bearing? What if the results came back as 19% not interested, 28% unsure; how would a developer (not just Blizzard) respond to that? Especially if it’s already under development.
The Blizzard Product Slate leaked back in 2010 had the first expansion due for release in the middle of 2013 and a second at the end of 2014. Considering they were off by about a year with Reaper of Souls we can push that second expansion back a year; so middle to end of 2015. That seems reasonable.
As this survey wouldn’t go out to all Diablo 3 players, we can hold our own poll here and now. If you were asked the same question with the exact same options what would you say?
Thanks fmulder for digging this up and putting it in the community forum.
