Gamescom: Blizzard is "Serious" About Diablo III on Console

Blizzard hasn't quite announced Diablo III for consoles yet, but Xbox 360 and PS3 owners still ought to feel pretty good about their chances.

During a Gamesccom press conference, lead designer Josh Mosqueira said that the company is "very, very serious about bringing the Diablo III experience to console."

"Today, we're trying to build the best console team at Blizzard. We're looking for programmers, designers, artists who think their dream job would be to bring Diablo to the console. Trust me, it is a dream job," he said.

"All I can say is it's going to be awesome. Stay tuned."

Blizzard is known for being primarily a PC developer, but a console port wouldn't be unprecedented for the company. The original Diablo got a port to the PlayStation back in 1998. The only question is whether Blizzard will follow in Valve's footsteps and bring Battle.net functionality to the PS3.

As for the PC version, it's still without an official release date.
