We have heard in the past that Blizzard were “experimenting” with Diablo 3 on consoles and Bashiok’s last post on 10 January still stated they we re “exploring” the console idea.

    “Yup” wasn’t meant to be an announcement. We’re still exploring a console version, but more importantly working on the PC/Mac version.

    Another job posting has come up with this week and this time for a Senior Software Engineer, Console — Graphics Specialist where the position requires “developing rendering subsystems on multiple console platforms and ensuring the best representation of the game’s artistic vision”.

    We can then assume that the console version is unlikely to be an ‘exclusive’ release on either the PS3 or 360 and that development could now be ramping up as the PC version is almost complete.
