After a 12 year wait since the last full instalment in the series, PC gamers across the globe are now clicking their mice into submission with Diablo III, the hack-and-slash dungeon crawler for Blizzard. For nearly as long have been rumours of a console version to complement the desktop edition, but now the fate of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions looks uncertain.
Speaking to Gamasutra, the game’s director Jay Wilson said “we’re not sure yet whether we think it will work, and whether we think we have the resources to do it.”
Right now, it all seems to be hanging on the quality of the staff Blizzard manage to employ for the project. “The better people we hire, the better chance we have to actually make it,” explained Wilson.
However, with things still seemingly at the early development stages (as suggested by the need for more staff), it’ll be some time until we see Diablo III on consoles, if at all.
