"We've been monitoring the game 24/7 and have applied several optimizations to help our systems better weather the global rush," the statement read.

"In order to make sure everything is continuing to run as it should, we've decided to move out our target launch for the real-money auction house beyond our original estimated date of May 22. We'll post further updates on that in the near future."

The statement also acknowledged that some players were experiencing problems with the game's achievement system. Blizzard said they are currently investigating the issue.
