Diablo III is Running on Consoles at Blizzard


Could Blizzard’s newest dungeon crawler be a hit in your living room?

If you’re still holding out hope that Diablo III will eventually appear on home consoles, Blizzard’s recent chat with Polygon should be music to your ears. According to Blizzard’s Chief Creative Officer, Rob Pardo, the developer has fully playable versions of Diablo III running on unspecified consoles.

Unfortunately, the company isn’t ready to make a console version of Diablo III an official product quite yet. Right now it seems Blizzard is more focused on patching and adding on to the existing experience for PC and Mac than expanding to a console audience.

“We’ve got builds up and running on it,” Pardo explains. “We’re hoping to get it far enough along where we can make it an official project, but we’re not quite ready to release stuff about it, but it’s looking pretty cool.”

If Diablo III does end up on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, or perhaps even an as-of-yet unannounced console, it wouldn’t be the first time the series hit the living room; The original Diablo title made its way to the first PlayStation system in 1998, roughly two years after its debut on PC.
