A little while back, Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition was announced exclusively for the PlayStation 4, with no word of an Xbox One release of the game being a possibility. Now, some interesting news has popped up straight from Blizzard.
In an interview with VideoGamer, Diablo 3 lead producer Alex Mayberry revealed that Diablo 3 is actually up and running on the Xbox One as well, even if it may never see the light of day.
I don’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 went further to say that “it makes more sense” to develop for both systems at once rather than just one and then the other later if it happens. The game was also originally only announced for PlayStation 3 before getting a simultaneous launch on the Xbox 360 as well, so it will be interesting to see what happens here with the potential Xbox One version.
