Blizzard recently launched a series of new jobs, including; Lead Designer; Console, Lead Programmer; Console and Senior Producer; Console,
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. If you’re passionate about all things Diablo and have the requisite skill and experience, then head over to our jobs site to check out the positions and apply.
Please note that this is not an announcement of a console title. We are first and foremost developing Diablo III for Windows and Mac PCs and don’t intend to allow any possibility of a console interpretation to delay or affect the release of the game.
Whilst Diablo was originally ported to PS1 back in 98, this seems like a weird progression.
Blizzard also claim that this will not slow down the PC version, so you can keep your pants on guys.
