Blizzard all in on Diablo 3 for consoles

Written by David Stellmack



A first for the PC centric company


Blizzard is all in on Diablo 3 for consoles, according to recent reports coming from the developer. A console version of a Blizzard title is a first for the PC centric developer and Blizzard has never invested in console development to the degree that they have committed to for Diablo 3, according to Jay Wilson, Diablo 3 Game Director at Blizzard.

While Blizzard has not been afraid to talk about the console version of Diablo 3 (which is believed to be in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3), currently the developer has yet to officially confirm the announcement of the console version or when it might be released. This is apparently due to the fact that the studio is still in exploring mode and that they don’t want a Diablo 3 port from the PC version.

Still, many are skeptical that Blizzard will release a console version of Diablo 3. Wilson seems to understand that people are skeptical and perhaps they should be, given that Blizzard has never developed a console title before. The developer has expectations that they want to deliver a title that looks and feels like it was developed for consoles from the ground up, which could prove to be a tall order.
