Heart Of The Swarm In First Half Of 2013, D3 Expansion Plans
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Activision Blizzard recently announced the results of its third fiscal quarter. During the post-earnings conference call the company revealed that StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is scheduled for release in the first half of 2013, and officially confirmed plans for a Diablo III expansion.

Beta testing for Heart of the Swarm is well underway and the development team has been collecting great feedback from the community. Just last week, we made a major content update to the beta in order to test some important community features, which have been well-received by players. These features are designed to improve the social aspect, as well as the overall user experience for StarCraft players. We’re working hard towards a first-half 2013 launch for Heart of the Swarm.

Stephen Ju (Crédit Suisse AG, Research Division): The prior iterations of Diablo II expansion pack released about 1 year after the game itself came out. So wondering if you have anything you share in terms of whether or not you have a similar plan for Diablo III to keep your users engaged?

Morhaime: We do have a plan. An expansion planned for Diablo. I don’t have any timeline to talk about. I think that the most important thing for us always comes down to the quality of the expansion and the gameplay, and so that will be a big factor in terms of driving our schedule.
