Blizzard has announced that the real-money auction house in Diablo 3, where players will be able to trade real cash for in-game items, will not be added to the game any time soon.

Previously Blizzard planned to implement the real-money auction house by the end of the month, but in a recent forum post they said that they "need a bit more time to iron out the existing general stability and gameplay issues before that feature goes live. While we don't have a new launch date to share just yet, we’ll have more information soon."

We're sure you can find somewhere else to waste spend your money (or get rich selling loot, if that was your plan) for the time being. Maybe become a pirate. Let us know what you decide in the comments or on Twitter.
