Diablo 3 has still not been released yet. The third installment of this series has kept fans on the edge of their seats, waiting not so patiently for the launch date. However some news has emerged from the Blizzard camp…

Blizzard is apparently looking for someone to fill the position of a Lead Designer, Lead Programmer and Senior Producer for an unspecified console. Could this mean that Diablo 3 will be making it’s way to the PS3 or the Xbox360? That would be really awesome in my opinion and provide a huge revenue stream for them. Here is some of the copy from the job listing:

We’re exploring a Diablo-related concept for consoles and are currently looking to fill a few senior console-related positions on the Diablo III team. As we’ve said in the past, with proper care the gameplay could suit the console platform, and we’re interested in seeing what talent out there might be interested in such a project. If you’re passionate about all things Diablo and have the requisite skill and experience, then head over to our jobs site to check out the positions and apply.

Please note that this is not an announcement of a console title. We are first and foremost developing Diablo III for Windows and Mac PCs and don’t intend to allow any possibility of a console interpretation to delay or affect the release of the game.

Last month Mike Morhaime, President of Blizzard, suggested recently in an interview that Diablo 3 might make an appearance on console gaming systems.

“Every game we have the discussion about which platforms make the most sense. As Diablo 3 takes shape, I think we’ll do an evaluation. I think there is a pretty good argument to be made that that type of game might work very well on consoles. There might be some technical limitations though that we might need to get past.”

So it seems that there may be some truth behind this. My only concern is that it they release it exclusively on one console platform… which would be disastrous if isn’t the one that you own! There’s currently still no solid release date for the PC/Mac version of Diablo 3. In the mean time check out our awesome Diablo 3 concept art here.
