Diablo III is currently in development for the Xbox One, along with the already confirmed PlayStation 4 version, Blizzard told Videogamer, but doesn’t yet know if it will actually release.
Diablo III lead producer Alex Mayberry said it “makes more sense” to be developing simultaneously for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 , but doesn’t “know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can’t really comment on what that contract looks like.”
“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 feels because Blizzard created the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Diablo III concurrently, they are able to with the next-gen platforms.
“We have that pipeline worked out,” Mayberry commented. “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.”
Diablo III’s Reaper of Souls expansion launches tomorrow, March 25.
