Diablo III Team Deathmatch Development Ends

by

Blizzard have announced that they are to end development on a Team Deathmatch mode for Diablo III.

Speaking via the official Diablo 3 Blog, Game director Jay Wilson stated:

“Our original intent with PvP for Diablo III was to provide more formal support for the dueling community that existed in Diablo II, We wanted to give players some kind of structure that would not only make it easier for you to duel with one another, but also allow you to have duels that were team-based. This is how our Team Deathmatch mode emerged, and it’s been instrumental in making a lot of improvements to Diablo 3”

“But in continuing to develop this mode, playtest it, and put it in front of other developers within the company, we’ve found that it falls short of our expectations for a high-quality Blizzard experience. We’ve brought a lot of people in to try out Team Deathmatch and, while some found it entertaining, most of our testers didn’t feel like it was something they’d want to do beyond a few hours. Without more varied objectives, or very lucrative rewards, few saw our current iteration as something they’d want spend a lot of time in.”

They have however revealed that they plan to bring in Dueling in the upcoming patch 1.0.7. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
