Diablo 3 Could Be Released on Consoles

Diablo 3 might be released on consoles in the near future. A fan asked Blizzard community manager Micah “Bashiok” on Twitter to “confirm or deny Diablo 3 coming to consoles.” Bashiok replied vaguely, "Yup. Josh Mosqueira is lead designer for the Diablo console project.”

While this didn’t exactly answer the fan’s question, this statement led many to believe that Diablo 3 would be released on consoles. A response by Blizzard neither confirmed nor denied the rumor: "Bashiok’s 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."

This does imply that a console version of Diablo 3 is in the works, but it won’t be released alongside the PC version.
