Rumor: Diablo 3 Going Multi-Platform?

Speaking at a DICE conference today, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said that the company is at least considering bringing Diablo 3 to consoles.   Blizzard is definitively a PC developer, almost never designing games for console gaming – the last time was the original Diablo, which was ported to PS1.  In spite of their history, it seems that they’re reconsidering; “I think you could make an argument that a game like Diablo might play very well on a console,” said Morhaime, “It’s something that we’re actually doing an investigation into to see if that could make sense.”  That said, Morhaime said that there were many “issues” with making a console version of the game, mainly involving DLC and the effective use of patches.

Final verdict:  While it’s a nice thought, don’t hold your breath.
