Jay Wilson’s long-anticipated Diablo 3 discussion at GDC went off today (Wyatt’s is tomorrow). There’s no video or transcript yet, but Gamespot has a short piece covering what Jay said about the player population.
Diablo III logs around one million unique players per day, former game director Jay Wilson revealed today during a Game Developers Conference panel titled Shout At The Devil: The Making of Diablo III. Wilson also noted that over 3 million unique gamers play Diablo III every month.
Yes, but this means 9m people don’t play Diablo 3 every month, and judging by the comments threads on Battle.net, about 8m of them stop by to make sure everyone knows it.
