Diablo III

Look, consoles, it’s not you. It’s Blizzard.

Well, ok, it’s also kinda you.

Speaking during today’s Diablo III and World of Warcraft press conference at BlizzCon, Diablo III game director Jay Wilson and World of Warcraft production director J Allen Brack talked about Blizzard’s relationship – or lack thereof – with consoles. The long and short of it?

“We’d happily put a game on console if it played well on console,” Brack explained.

The two went on to explain that Blizzard isn’t just a PC company; it’s a gaming company. If the company’s patented Ultra Brain stormed up an idea that’d play well on consoles, Blizzard would bring it over in heartbeat.

That slight seismic disturbance you just felt? That was everyone in the entire world screaming “DIABLO III” in unison. Unfortunately, Jay and J (who really need a morning radio show) reiterated that there are no current plans to bring Diablo III to consoles. Bummer.
