Diablo III in development for Xbox One

But Blizzard won't confirm whether it'll see release.

Diablo III

An Xbox One version of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition is in development alongside the previously announced PlayStation 4 version, Blizzard confirms. But the developer won’t officially announced whether it’ll be released or not.

“I don’t know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can’t really comment on what that contract looks like,” Diablo III lead producer Alex Mayberry told VideoGamer.

“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.

According to Mayberry, “it makes more sense” to develop for both consoles, even though a release on Xbox One has yet to be determined.

“We have that pipeline worked out,” he continued. “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.”

Last week, Blizzard announced the PlayStation 4 version of Diablo III would be playable for the first time at PAX East next month.
