In an update on Blizzard’s community site, it looks like they are investigating the possibility of a ‘Diablo concept’ for the DiabloWikiconsole market. A new Diablo game for consoles is the one question that is asked tiome and time again and Blizzard always shy away from the idea. However, perhaps they are now thinking it may well work and with the support of Activision now in the picture.

    We’re exploring a Diablo-related concept for consoles and are currently looking to fill a few senior console-related positions on the Diablo III team. As we’ve said in the past, with proper care the gameplay could suit the console platform, and we’re interested in seeing what talent out there might be interested in such a project. If you’re passionate about all things Diablo and have the requisite skill and experience, then head over to our jobs site to check out the positions and apply.

    Please note that this is not an announcement of a console title. We are first and foremost developing Diablo III for Windows and Mac PCs and don’t intend to allow any possibility of a console interpretation to delay or affect the release of the game.

    Blizzard added the following job positions today:

    Lead Designer, Console – Diablo III
    Lead Programmer, Console – Diablo III
    Senior Producer, Console – Diablo III

    Note that we called this one two weeks ago, after reading several non-denial console comments in Blizzcon interviews.
