In a recent interview with Polygon (thanks VG247), Blizzard executive Rob Pardo has confirmed that their action-RPG Diablo 3 is still being explored on consoles, with "builds up and running on it", however nothing set in stone has been revealed yet. In the interview, Rob reveals that while they are hoping it can be made into an official project, it isn't quite there yet, though it's apparently "looking pretty cool".
While Blizzard Entertainment has been toying at the release of Diablo 3 on consoles, there has only ever been one game in the franchise that has seen the light of console days, the infamous Diablo on PlayStation which was published by EA in 1998.
Lead Designer of Diablo 3 Jay Wilson also stated in the Polygon interview that Blizzard are still exploring console options and continuing to "expand and add onto the game."
The whole team is essentially working on the next big Diablo thing," Wilson told Polygon during an interview this weekend. "A lot of that stuff will show up next year at some point."Hopefully if a console version of Diablo 3 ever makes the light of day, it will be just as feature rich as the PC version is. For now though, it's simply a Blizzard trademark Soon.
