Diablo 3 Being Developed For Both PS4 and Xbox One

Post by S7 Sticky on Mon Mar 24, 2014 3:49 pm

Blizzard is developing the PS4 and Xbox One versions of†Diablo III†in tandem, though the PlayStation version is the only one officially confirmed as having a release date.
Speaking to IGN, the game's lead producer Alex Mayberry explained that the company was developing a version for Microsoft's Xbox One, though stopped short of officially confirming the game would be coming to the console.

"I canít confirm it at this point, as I donít have a release date, at all for that," Mayberry said. "The way we develop, itís as if there will be an Xbox One version, but until itís announced thereís nothing official."

Following this, he went on to reveal how far along the PS4 version is in terms of development, suggesting we'd see it sooner rather than later, and what the team at Blizzard focus on when creating the next-gen console version of the demonic loot-a-thon.
"It's being worked on," he said. "I donít have any release dates to announce, but itís not far behind. They kind of have to wait for the PC side to wrap before they can completely finish, but theyíve been in parallel development with us the whole time. As we developed on the PS, they pulled it into the console version and then they make it work. So theyíre still in the process of wrapping up that side of things, as theyíve had to wait for us to finish up. It wonít be long, but I canít give an exact date as we still need to go through certifications.
"Our goal when developing on the console side is to not just port the game over. We want it to feel crafted for that console. Certainly the user interface will be completely retooled for the console side of things, but their also looking at a number of features thatíd be different from the PC side. I canít go into details though."

Listings a couple of months ago†suggested an Xbox One version of Diablo III†was on the way, though the developer refused to confirm anything. Last year, Blizzard confirmed that Reaper of Souls will†run at 1080p at 60fps on PlayStation 4,†detailed the version's exclusive features, and confirmed characters from the PS3 version will transfer over.

Not sure if I'll get this since I don't know if any of the others on PS4 will get it. †And seriously, who wants to loot by themselves?
