We’ve heard several rumors in the past that Blizzard was looking to develop Diablo 3 for consoles, but now Blizzard has nearly confirmed that they’re working on Diablo for consoles.
Diablo 3 Lead Designer Josh Mosqueira had this to say:
“very, very serious about bringing some undefined (Diablo) “experience” to platforms beyond the PC and Mac.”
“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 bring Diablo to the console.”
It’s worth noting Blizzard always takes their sweet ass time on their games, so I wouldn’t expect the nearly confirmed Diablo 3 for consoles to hit anytime near the PC/Mac’s release.
