Someone in Germany might have gotten a small hint before the rest of the world.
On the site Redcoon, a PS3 version of Diablo III is shown, and considering the fact that the well known IP has been PC only for years, this could ruffle a few feathers. No one’s saying that this is actually real, especially since Blizzard never announced the fact that they were releasing a game for a console, though some have to wonder if this could be the start of something. Back in 2010, Blizzard had a job listing as “Senior Producer – Console”, and followed up with this to say:
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.
A year later, lead designer Josh Mosqueira announced that Blizzard was “very, very serious about bringing the Diablo 3 experience to the console”. Here we are, a month and change after the release, E3 this week, and a listing for a Diablo III for PS3. Who wants to start taking bets?
