Diablo 3 auction houses shut down next week

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls

This is your final chance to take advantage of the auction houses in Diablo 3 before Blizzard Entertainment shuts them down for good.

As previously announced in September last year, Blizzard is closing both the gold and real-money houses for all regions.

"Once the shutdown is complete, items will either be delivered to the current highest bidder or returned to the seller, appearing in each player's Completed tab," an FAQ reads. "Unclaimed gold will also appear in the Completed tab. Players will be able to claim gold and items and from this tab until June 24, 2014.

"Items and gold not claimed by this date will be consumed by Treasure Goblins, never to be seen again."

Back in March at GDC 2013, former Diablo 3 game director Jay Wilson admitted that the auction houses "really hurt the game."

"I think we would turn it off if we could," he said.
