Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition May Not Receive Post-Launch Patch

By   /   Jul 5, 2014

The forces of Diablo are nigh, with the console version of Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition close at hand. However, Blizzard isn’t sure on updating the game after its launch.

Speaking on the official Diablo 3 forums, community manager Grimiku stated:

We’re still working out all the details regarding if and how Ultimate Evil Edition will be supported post-launch (e.g. will we patch the game after it ships? if yes, should we only patch to fix bugs and address critical game issues, or should we patch in new content as well? at what frequency should we patch?), so we don’t have an answer for you right now.

However, it’s not like the game will ship without any update. Grimiku has confirmed that the game will launch with Patch v.2.0.5 which addresses a plethora of bug, class balancing, and better rewards in Adventure Mode.

But following that, there is no confirmation on future patches:

As we move closer to ship and finalize our post-launch patching plans, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. Great question, though!

For the sake of argument, let us consider that Blizzard won’t launch any patches after the game’s release; it would mean that the players buying the game for $59.99 on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will miss out on a large quantity of content and bug-fixes.

Personally, I believe that Blizzard should have a clear take on this, and shouldn’t keep fans befuddled about the whole situation.

The biggest highlight of Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition is the inclusion of Reaper of Souls expansion pack which adds a fifth act in the game along with increased difficulty options, a new class called Crusader, Adventure Mode, and better loot.

Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition is slated to launch across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Playstation in August, 2014.
