Diablo III

An Xbox One version of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition is in development alongside the previously announced PlayStation 4 version, Blizzard confirms. But the developer won’t officially announced whether it’ll be released or not.

“I don’t know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can’t really comment on what that contract looks like,” Diablo III lead producer Alex Mayberry told VideoGamer.

“The point is we are developing for Xbox [One] and PS4 simultaneously. We hit those major platforms and then our goal as a development team is to make them run.

According to Mayberry, “it makes more sense” to develop for both consoles, even though a release on Xbox One has yet to be determined.

“We have that pipeline worked out,” he continued. “We’ve already done it with the 360 and PS3, so that team knows how to develop at the same time for both of those platforms. That’s just what we do. And then Blizzard and Microsoft can work out whatever they work out.”

Last week, Blizzard announced the PlayStation 4 version of Diablo III would be playable for the first time at PAX East next month.

    That’s pretty cool, sort of expected, but still cool.

  • Tac-Mex

    So, they are doing a game and they are not sure if it will be released

    What a waste of resources

      It’s Blizzard. They can get away with it.

    • Zarathos No Daimaōh

      Doubt it’s that useless anyway. Released or not , it at least give them some inside knowledge on the XB1 for future titles

  • Budgiecat

    What is the deal with this game?? Why the hell should I care if its coming out for the umptieth time. I really don’t get it…the game does not look impressive at all…

      Diablo 3 looks fun actually :D

      But you should try Grim Dawn. Now that’s one of the darkest dungeon crawler games i’ve ever seen :)

        It’s fun till you have to kite for your life. I stopped in Act 4 Inferno. It wasn’t fun once my gf quit.

  • Elvick

    I don’t get why they’d be making it when they aren’t even sure if it’ll come out.

  • Izzeltrioum

    Developing for X1 was useless enough.

    Anyone can confirm Diablo 3 it’s an actual, DEMANDED port from dudebros?
