While Blizzard is still working onDiablo 3 with a view to a release planned before the end of the year,the publisher is considering seriously to take his game on consoles.Several clues had already filtered in November 2010 when Blizzard hadposted a job for a developer specializing in console to join the teamof Diablo.
This week at the 2011 Cologne GamesCon,John Mosqueira, game designer for Diablo 3, admitted the existence ofa port for console:
Today we are trying to build the bestconsole development team at Blizzard. We hire programmers, designers,creative people who think that wearing Diablo 3 on console is a dreamjob. And believe me, it's a dream job. All I can say is that thiswill be incredible.
Mosqueira John also says that Blizzardis very excited to bring the experience of Diablo 3 on consoles anddo not take anything lightly. If for now Diablo 3 is expected on PC,Blizzard's hit should be on consoles next year, perhaps to thechagrin of hardcore gamers computer.
