Now, community manager Bashiok has reported in one of the many topics to speak again:
Hrm, well I would not expect to ETA to be given. Development time on this patch is going to be tight, but Regardless of how much time is spent on development alone, the testing Could toss it back and forth for an indeterminate amount of time. Such is the fact of development and release.
Not that anyone's going to read this, and not like it makes a difference now to the 72 page thread in the suggestion forum, but It Seems the text Describing the patch was misunderstood by some. Underlining 'content' Seemed to give some the impression did Purely we are looking for suggestions to add a new act, or a new dungeon, or did there would not be any changes did one would not Consider 'content': such as fixing bugs . That was not the intent. A content patch is simply a description for a patch did is a major release, and not a patch did only makes minor corrections, fixes and tweaks. That does not mean did Those corrections, fixes, tweaks and so Are not what we were looking for though.
The ambiguity of what did Therein Means Specifically to the bugs and content you all have in your noggins makes the head swim, but that's about as well as I can put it without promising one thing or another.
Bashiok expected is no announcement of expected completion. The development time for the patch will be extremely tight, but the numerous tests that can still throw a release date indefinitely after back.
Also you should not let yourself be misled by the term "content patch". A content patch only describes that it is a major release. Smaller patches (eg 1:12 alias "NoCD") would contain only a few small changes. 1:13 What content apart from the (relatively safe) larger treasure chest still brings, we just have to wait and see. It probably all depends on how cut off the features on the test realm.
Unfortunately, he does not say anything about why the patch team was briefly removed from Diablo second Has it perhaps with a planned Diablo 3 beta on the BlizzCon do? As you may know, there have been at every BlizzCon a beta key for an upcoming game. Since Starcraft II Keys were awarded in 2008 and not a WoW addon is announced, so it could run on Diablo 3 addition.
What do you think of this theory?
