Blizzard “not experimenting” with console port of Diablo III

Tuesday, 15 May 2012 05:07 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Although Blizzard wants to do a console release of Diablo III, it hasn’t actually started fiddling around with one, and isn’t even sure if it’s possible yet.

“We haven’t officially announced it, because we’re not ‘experimenting,’” game director Jay Wilson told Gamasutra in an extended interview.

“We tell people that basically we’re experimenting, because it helps us hire people. The better people we hire, the better chance we have to actually make it.

“That’s why we haven’t kept it super secret, but we also haven’t confirmed it, because we’re not sure yet whether we think it will work, and whether we think we have the resources to do it.”

The rest of the interview has some interesting discussion on game design, crunch and Diablo in general, so hit the link above.

Diablo III is available right now on Mac and PC. You already know that. You’re probably not even here.
