Diablo III Possibly Coming to Consoles
Posted on Tuesday, November 16 @ 18:09:16 Eastern by Daniel BischoffRemember Starcraft 64? No one has seen a Blizzard title on a console since. That might be changing.
A little digging at the Blizzard jobs page has uncovered console-centric job positions open for applicants under Diablo III development. With the right qualifications, you could be the Senior Producer, Lead Designer, or Lead Programmer of whatever console product Blizzard is looking to branch the Diablo brand out on.
Seems like there's a very real possibility for Diablo III on your Xbox 360, but until an official announcement, Blizzard has updated the Diablo III community page with the following statement:
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. As we’ve said in the past, with proper care the gameplay could suit the console platform, and we’re interested in seeing what talent out there might be interested in such a project. If you’re passionate about all things Diablo and have the requisite skill and experience, then head over to our jobs site to check out the positions and apply.
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.
I can appreciate their desire to keep this under wraps... I mean, have you seen people at Blizzcon? The rabid hunger people have for all things Blizzard is really astounding. Still, Big Papa Activision is probably pushing for more Blizzard content on consoles after Starcraft II's less than expected performance. The market has shifted. Online communities are just as big on the home television as they are on the PC or Mac now.
