Diablo III back to unconfirmed for consoles

Unrejoice. The day we hoped would never come is here, just a day after we’d had the good news.

That is to say that Blizzard has debunked previous confirmation of Diablo III heading to consoles. Yesterday community manager Micah Whipple said that the game was indeed heading to consoles on Twitter, but this was apparently a misleading statement.

The company has released a statement to IndustryGamers, reading: “Bashiok’s [Whipple’s Twitter handle] response on Twitter was intended as a confirmation that we’re actively exploring the possibility of developing a console version of Diablo III, as we’ve mentioned in the past. This is not a confirmation that Diablo III is coming to any console platform. Our focus right now is on finishing the PC/Mac version of Diablo III and making sure it’s a worthwhile successor to the Diablo series.”

Yeah, but, it is still coming, right?

Why do you play with our hearts like this, Blizzard?
