As 2012 rolls in, many gamers are rejoicing that they might make it to a year that Diablo III
actually releases. Blizzard's
action-RPG will certainly be a hit on the PC, although console fans may have more hope today that Diablo III
could reach the shores of their platform.
According to a job posting on Gamasutra
, Blizzard is hiring a "Senior Software Engineer Console Network" to work on the Diablo team. It's a full-time position that will be in charge of designing and working on network systems for a console title. One of the requirements for the job is that the person have worked on a major Xbox 360 or PS3 title and have a good amount of experience with PSN and Xbox Live.
While this is not the first indication that Blizzard is working on a console version of Diablo III
, it certainly lends credence to the notion that the company is actively working on it. The studio previously said that the title "is probably coming to consoles."
