Blizzard: Diablo III Is Not Necessarily a PlayStation Exclusive

Posted by Sammy Barker

Studio looking outside of Sony's systems

Diablo III was announced for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 during last month’s PlayStation Meeting press conference. It made its public debut at PAX East yesterday on Sony’s current flagship console. However, despite all of that, it looks like the title may not actually be exclusive to Sony’s systems.

"We don't have any announcements to make at this time,” senior producer Julia Humphreys said regarding other platforms in an interview with the Penny Arcade Report. "But we’re not necessarily a Sony exclusive.”

Blizzard executive Chris Metzen explained that the studio had entered a “strategic partnership” with Sony last month, which perhaps indicates that the title will include exclusive content on both the PS3 and PS4. For now, the developer’s keeping schtum. Don’t be surprised if the dungeon crawler ends up on the Xbox 360 and Wii U further down the line, though.

Is "schtum" a real word or a typo? Looks like something TBD would take you to task for.

Has there been a single game announcement yet for KinectBox or whatever the Xbox720 will be called? Must be hard for publishers making games on systems that haven't been announced yet. Unless I'm right and the KinectBox really will be game free? They lost Bungie, what else they got?

Xbox will have few system exclusives a they have no studios, they'll pay developers for six month contracts cause they suck as anything else

They were kind of talking at Sony's event like the only consoles it would appear would be PS3 and 4 but I guess it makes sense to put it on others as well.
