Diablo 3 Coming To Consoles? Not So Fast, Blizzard Clarifies

Diablo 3 Will Have A Beta

The Internet has been abuzz lately regarding a rumor that Diablo 3 is coming to consoles. In a Twitter conversation between Diablo fan TaNGoIX and Blizzard community manager Micah "Bashiok", TaNGoIX asked Bashiok to, "confirm or deny Diablo 3 coming to consoles," and Bashiok simply replied, "Yup. Josh Mosqueira is lead designer for the Diablo console project.”

This is where a lot of the confusion started. Could this have been a confirmation that Diablo 3 is in fact coming to consoles or was Bashiok just stating that there is in fact a Diablo console project?

We've known for quite a while now that it's possible Blizzard is working on a Diablo console port, having posted many openings for positions on the project. But as of right now, a Blizzard spokesperson has confirmed that what Bashiok said was misleading, and that Diablo 3 has in fact, not been confirmed for a console release.

Here's what Blizzard had to say:

"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."

It doesn't get anymore official than that. This quote does lead us to believe that a D3 console port is definitely in the works and is most likely happening in the future, but for right now the PC/Mac version is getting first priority.

Now we just need to hear about a confirmed release date for the action RPG and we'll all be happy.
