With Diablo 3 coming out on the 15th you would think other publishers would be avoiding releasing any titles around the same time. Let’s face it, the Diablo 3 audience is massive and it’s Blizzard’s first release for quite some time. The only other title of note that’s going head to head with Diablo 3 on the 15th is Max Payne 3, which will appeal to a different audience. However, Nordic games were so concerned about releasing their expansion for SpellForce 2, called SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny, they have delayed its release until June. In a statement from Nordic Games’ Philipp Brock, they made it pretty clear releasing at the same time would be a bad idea.
