While Gamescom 2011 is coming to a close, some more information has recently surfaced that will delight fans of the Diablo series who do not own a gaming PC. Speaking with Eurogamer, lead designer of Diablo 3 Josh Mosqueira has confimred that the title will make its way on to consoles.

“Today, we’re trying to build the best console team at Blizzard. We’re looking for programmers, designers, artists who think their dream job would be to bring Diablo to the console. Trust me, it is a dream job.”

The rumors of this happening had begun last November, when Blizzard annonced that it was looking for a “Diablo related concept for consoles” in a job posting. There is still no release date confirmed on the title, but beta testing for the PC version is set to begin in September.

Daniel Horowitz is currently a Writing/Film student at Sarah Lawrence College, where he previously worked as a film technician and teacher assistant despite having little technical knowledge. He is currently abroad studying play-writing at Oxford University in the UK. Daniel likes to think of himself as a weird combination of Captain America and Hunter S Thompson minus the extensive drug use. As a result, he can often be found lifting things, fighting for justice, and being a crazy outlaw journalist on the edge who doesn't play by the rules. When he’s not writing about, reviewing, or playing games, music, and occasionally writing well-paying profiles of businessman, Daniel thinks about what exactly he'll end u doing with his life post-graduation. Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
