Diablo 3 in development for Xbox One, but Blizzard not sure if it will ever launch
Blizzard confirms it's working on a version of the game for Microsoft's new system, but won't say if it will ever be released.
Lead producer Alex Mayberry said it "makes more sense" to develop the game for Xbox One and PS4 simultaneously, but he would not confirm if Diablo III is actually going to be released on Microsoft's new console.
"I don't know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can't really comment on what that contract looks like," Mayberry said. "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."
Mayberry said because Blizzard created the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Diablo III simultaneously, the studio has demonstrated it knows how to work on two platforms at once.
"That's just what we do. And then Blizzard and Microsoft can work out whatever they work out," he said, referencing the contract between the two companies.
