Blizzard Seeking People To Work On "Console Diablo III"
Why are we searching for evidence for a game that should've been out a good seven or eight years ago?
Ah well, such is the nature of the ongoing saga that is Diablo. We know Diablo III is in the works but we certainly don't have a release date, and we're still not certain it will arrive for consoles.
However, as to the latter topic, there has been various pieces of evidence over the past year to indicate that PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners will get the long-anticipated title. The latest info comes from a few new job listings: recently, Blizzard - via Gamasutra - posted a want ad for a Senior Producer to work on "Console Diablo III," and now, it has happened again. This time, they're looking for a Lead Designer to work on "(Console) Diablo III." Blizzard asks that applicants have "at least one AAA console title" to their credit and to disturb us a bit, they ask for "experience with shipping or porting multi-platform games." ...now why'd they have to say that?
We're just a little leery of ports, that's all. To date, Blizzard has not confirmed Diablo III for any platform besides the PC but maybe there's ample evidence to convince us of its inevitable arrival on the PS3 and 360.
