Now, we speculated that Diablo 3 is perfect for consoles and especially the Playstation 3 back in 2006. It’s only 5 years later that we can report with some certitude that indeed there are plans for a console version.
First piece of evidence is pretty obvious: Blizzard is advertising aggressively a few job opening for a Playstation 3 specialist.
Second piece is the reassuring statement from Blizzard that any console version of Diablo 3 will NOT delay the PC/Mac version.
“We’re exploring a Diablo-related concept for consoles and are currently looking to fill a few senior console-related positions on the Diablo III team,” said Blizzard’s spokesperson.
“Please note that this is not an announcement of a console title. We are first and foremost developing Diablo III for Windows and Mac PCs and don’t intend to allow any possibility of a console interpretation to delay or affect the release of the game.”
Update: Blizzard has just confirmed Diablo 3 is coming out for Playstation 3 (and Playstation 4 when it comes out).
