Diablo III Console Bound?
Seems like Blizzard wants to once again bring their games to a console near you. When the game was first announced back in 2008 the only systems we knew it was coming out for was the PC and the Mac. Talk quickly started flying about a console version, but up until now there was nothing solid. Now that a job posting appeared on the company’s website stating their are seeking a “Lead Designer, Console” to work on Diablo III everything got a little bit more interesting.
This is the latest trailer that came out of Blizzcon 2010 introducing a new character called “Demon Hunter”.
Blizzard has issued a statement explaining the posting to its fans, stating:
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.
