Blizzard has announced the closure of the Diablo 3 auction houses as of 18 March.
“All active auctions will expire as normal following the shutdown of the gold and real-money auction houses,” said Blizzard. “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. 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.”
Blizzard originally announced the closure of the auction house in September 2013.
