Blizzard is hiring PS3 developers to work on Diablo 3, fuelling speculation of a console port.
Blizzard is recruiting developers with experience working on the PlayStation 3 to the Diablo 3 team, fuelling speculation of a PlayStation 3 version of the upcoming RPG.
The new advert appeared on Blizzard's official website
and called for a senior software engineer to work alongside the Diablo 3 development team.
'This position is responsible for overseeing PlayStation 3 (PS3) architecture design as well as other PS3-specific game code development to maximise platform performance,
' reads the advert.
Further responsibilities would include designing, creating and running various game systems on the PlayStation 3 platform, the ad continues.
Blizzard has steadfastly refused to confirm a PlayStation 3 version of Diablo 3, but has previously commented to Eurogamer
that rumours of a console project may related to a 'Diablo-related concept
', if not Diablo 3 itself.
Diablo 3 still has no official release dates on any platform, but Blizzard is set to begin beta testing in Q3 and is said to hope for a 2011 release.
