Blizzard CEO and founder Mike Morhaime has posted a long letter to Diablo III players in the Blizzard forums, in which he discusses the game’s rocky launch, the team’s dedication to fixing problems, and areas in which he feels the game has succeeded as well as failed. The message hints at upcoming changes for 1.0.4 which will promote build diversity and bring rarely-used buffs to the forefront, as well as new and improved Legendary items that are “more interesting, more powerful, and more epic in ways you probably won’t be expecting”.
Those of you who nodded in agreement when Blizzard’s Bashiok admitted that the game did not have enough end-game content may be interested to hear Mike’s final thoughts. “We’re also working on a gameplay system that will provide players who have max-level, high-powered characters new goals to strive for as an alternative to the ‘item hunt’. We’re not ready to get into specifics just yet, but I can say that we’re actively taking your feedback into account as we plan out the future of the game.”
