Blizzard Looking for Console Help [RUMOR]

By Jonathan Barnes, 8 years ago
Everyone's favorite PC darling, Blizzard Entertainment, recently posted that they are looking to fill a few positions in their ongoing development of Diablo III. This, in and of itself, is not newsworthy here... that is until you look at the positions they're looking to fill:

Lead Designer, Console
Lead Programmer, Console
Senior Producer, Console

These positions are also listed as "particularly critical positions".

The rumor that Diablo III is coming to consoles has been circulating for a long, LONG time and has been put to death and resurrected many times. This is just the latest in the breadcrumb trail.

It should be noted, however, that in a statement on Blizzard's Community page the developer said:

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.

In short, don't start celebrating now, but there is still a possible light at the end of the tunnel.
