Diablo 3 for consoles is “theoretically possible”
Blizzard told fans at last weekend’s Worldwide Invitational event that it was working on Diablo III for PC and Mac exclusively, and had no plans for a console game at the moment. The decision was said to be motivated simply by PC being the most appropriate platform for the game.
However, asked if Blizzard could make a Diablo game for consoles, Pardo said, “I think it’s theoretically possible. It would have some control changes that I think you’d have to make… But it’s probably, of our major franchises, the one that’s most console friendly, for sure.”
Pardo – formerly lead designer on World of Warcraft, now occupying a design role with oversight of all Blizzard’s titles – quickly focused on the practical and design problems of a console version.
