As part of last night’s PlayStation 4-centric press conference, one of the numerous game announcements came from veteran developer Blizzard, who has made public their plans to bring last year’s hit PC exclusive Diablo III to both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
Blizzard co-founder Frank Pearce offered a few tidbits of information on a PlayStation Blog post, saying that the developer was happy to return to console development as they had their roots in it back in the day (The Lost Vikings, anyone?).
Every upgrade the PC version has already received will be part of the basic package for the console versions of the game, and the interface, controls, and camera will all be revamped to better suit the controller-based experience as opposed to a mouse and keyboard. No specific release date for either version was announced, but Pearce did add that the game will be shown at PAX East next month in Boston.
Diablo III was a big hit on the PC, and with any luck, Blizzard will be able to replicate that success on Sony’s home consoles.
We will keep you updated on more news regarding these revamps as it hits.
