Bashiok will no doubt be on the frontline after this evening’s Q2 news, and he hit the boards quickly with:
Update: Yes, sounds like he is. Now play nice everyone!
…We’ve only ever said “early 2012”. And we just decided we’d need until Q2 this week. Seems like the conference call was as good a place as any to announce that.
Following the last patch it was inevitable another update from Jay (or someone) would be coming due to the lack of info on skills and Runes in Jay’s last update so at least we have something to look forward to in the interim.
In the meantime, as you’d expect, the news has not been received with open arms although the forums (view thread) seem a little calmer than the comments in the news items below this one but on the other hand the Facebook page is um, very angry to say the least – they tend not to hold back on Facebook I find.
