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.
