Blizzard, makers of Diablo III, have posted a job listing for a “Senior Producer For Consoles” for the Diablo III team. CEO Mike Morhaime stirred the console pot at DICE last week stating that Blizzard was actively investigating a console version of Diablo 3.
“I think you could make an argument that a game like Diablo might play very well on a console . It’s something that we’re actually doing an investigation into to see if that could make sense.”
– Mike Morhaime CEO Blizzard Entertainment
With TorchLight hitting Xbox 360 in the coming weeks, it seems the folks at Blizzard are finally convinced that Diablo will work on a console. Torchlight is often compared to Diablo and was developed by former Diablo team members. I hope the Torchlight folks at least get an ‘at-a-boy pat on the back for paving the way with their proof of concept. If TorchLight is successful on the console platform(s) – there will be little doubt that Diablo III will follow.
