Blizzard hasn’t thought much about consoles games for almost two decades now — except for that one time we don’t like to talk about — and now that all seems to be changing. In recent adverts on Blizzard’s homepage, they’ve put out a call for console developers to work on none other than Diablo III.
The move shouldn’t be considered an announcement of a console-bound Diablo though, the studio warns. They explain: “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.”
Should everything go well and Blizzard decides to release the game for systems other than PC and Mac, it will be handled separately. The studio doesn’t “intend to allow any possibility of a console interpretation to delay or affect the release of the game.”
