Blizzard contemplates on bringing Diablo III to PS3, XBOX, and/or Wii-U in the future
Blizzard has in the pastshown interest about having Diablo III or a Diablo-related concept on gaming consoles when they were asked about such an idea. Well lately, it seems they are thinking more seriously about the concept more and more.
Recently at Blizzard's press conference at Germany's Gamescom,Josh Mosqueira, Diablo III lead designer, stated that he is"very, very serious" about bringing some undefined "experience" to platforms beyond PC gaming. That interpreted means he and his team at Blizzard are likely on trying to bring the experience to consoles.
"Today, we're trying to build the best console team at Blizzard...we're looking for programmers, designers and artists who think their dream job would be to bringDiablo to the console."
While Mosquiera didn't state it was for the Xbox 360, the PS3, or the upcoming Wii-U console, he did say that we should be excited for such an idea and "stay tuned" for any upcoming news. Come to think about it, Blizzcon is coming up soon. One could guess that "stay tuned" means "wait until Blizzcon for our announcement".
Knowing how Blizzard operates with windows of time between product announcements and shipments while maintaining their current games, there is no given or educated guess on when (or if) Diablo can be played on console system. One can hope that one of these days we can be playing Necromancer a high-definition cow level on Xbox Live.
