Could the Diablo series make a return to consoles? A handful of new jobs seeking fresh Blizzard talent with console experience sure makes it look that way.
The studio that normally sticks to PC and Mac may be making a console version of Diablo III, according to new job listings spotted by Gamasutra. Blizzard is seeking a Lead Producer, Lead Designer and Lead Programmer for a console version of its popular hack and slash RPG series, openings described as "particularly critical position[s] ". Each is listed under the Diablo III section of the job openings page.
"Blizzard Entertainment is seeking an experienced engineer to lead console development on the Diablo team, reads one listing. "The ideal candidate has both strong leadership skills and an impressive technical console background."
Blizzard has primarily stuck to PC based development for its recent projects, but has had some console experience, including StarCraft 64, Blackthorne and The Lost Vikings. The original Diablo was released for the PlayStation in 1998.
