If you're wondering when you'll be able to play Diablo III on consoles, well…it's a little complicated. Pay attention.
It'll come to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 3 of this year. However, it won't hit next-generation consoles until 2014, as per recent Blizzard info . The odd part is that the game has been confirmed for the PS4 but not the Xbox One.
Game director Josh Mosqueira and designers Travis Day and Wyatt Cheng said that releasing Diablo III for the PS4 in 2014 gives the team time to "create unique features." We already know they're planning to take advantage of the Dual Shock 4, as the touhpad will be used to manage the inventory. What else might they add…? If you're wondering, the title in question launched for the PC in May 2012 and went on to sell over 12 million copies as of December 31. That ain't too shabby, and we imagine many more will buy it on consoles.
Then again, maybe a lot of people are thinking Diablo can really only be enjoyed on PC. That may not be true, but we gotta see the final product before passing judgment.
