It has been a rumor for a very long time that Diablo 3 would be coming to consoles and it was never outright denied by Blizzard. The search as to whether there is truth behind this rumor has been a long one, but apparently, all we had to do was ask. That is what one Twitter user did to find out the truth.
A twitter follower of Blizzard Community Manager Micah Whiple asked whether or not Blizz planned on releasing Diablo 3 on consoles. Much to everyone’s absolute shock, Whiple simply gave the fan a “Yup,” and went on to confirm that Josh Mosqueira was filling the role of lead designer for the “Diablo console project.”
You can check Whiple’s entire tweet below.
“Yup. Josh Mosqueira is lead designer for the Diablo console project”
However, a simple Twitter exchange is far from an official press release, but let’s be honest, this is a pretty safe bet that the game will be hitting consoles later this year. Which consoles will it hit, on the other hand, is completely unknown. One would assume the Xbox 360 and PS3, though the Wii U is always a possibility as well.
It’s still unknown just exactly when Blizzard will be releasing Diablo 3 in any format, and after the rumored February release date was immediately shot down, we couldn’t possibly fathom a guess. However, it’s still allegedly on track to fulfill the needs of the masses early this year, so we’ll keep you updated with any word on an official release date.
