Diablo III will not allow modding

Following Blizzard’s decision to make Diablo III online-only and to include a real-world currency auction house, it has revealed – hardly surprisingly – that the game will not allow thirdparty mods. “For a variety of gameplay and security reasons, we will not be supporting bots or mods in Diablo III, and they’ll be expressly prohibited by our terms of use for the game,” says Blizzard’s FAQ. At the top of the variety of reasons are surely the concerns that mods could disrupt online play and the game’s economy.
