[UPDATE] Blizzard has amended its original state. The company now says Diablo III on PS4 will support Remote Play.
The original story is below.
Diablo III on PlayStation 4--the Ultimate Evil Edition--does not support Remote Play, at least not right now, senior level designer Matthew Berger told GameSpot at BlizzCon last night.
"Not really. Not for the moment," Berger said.
Part of the reason why comes down to the PlayStation Vita's screen being too small to effectively allow players to view the action and manage their inventories, Berger said.
"The Vita is an amazing piece of kit, but the screen is still smaller," he said. "And when you look at--and also it has its own aspect ratio--and when you look at Diablo III, there's a lot happening on-screen already. You get surrounded by your enemies, lots of effects flying off in every direction. The inventory can be pretty complicated to navigate sometimes when you have lots of items."
Berger did tease, however, that Remote Play support for the PS4 version of Diablo III is something Blizzard continues to think about.
"So it would be a little bit more of stretch. It's kind of percolating in the back of our mind, but we don't really have any plans right now," he said.
Remote Play allows certain console games to be played on the PS Vita. Nintendo offers similar functionality for the Wii U, allowing users to play some games completely off-screen via the GamePad.
Diablo III for PS4 will launch in 2014. Check back later for more from BlizzCon on the next-generation version of Blizzard's dungeon crawler that has sold over 14 million copies.
