After numerous Blizzard-officials have expressed their interest in expanding Diablo III to consoles, an official announcement regarding this possibility has been released on the Diablo III community website. The messages states that the studio is currently looking for new employees to fill some “senior console-related positions.” Though the game is being developed to be played with a mouse and keyboard, but Blizzard has stated that “with proper care[,] the gameplay could suit the console platform.”
The announcement specifically adds that this should not be regarded as an announcement of a future Diablo III-console adaptation, but that Blizzard is merely exploring options to create one. The current development of the game is solely focused on the PC and Mac platforms, and this version will not be delayed by a possible console adaptation.
A release date for the highly anticipated action/adventure has not yet been confirmed.
