Diablo 3 headed to next-gen consoles in 2014, devs say (Update)

The console version of Diablo 3 is headed to next-gen systems in 2014, not as next-gen launch titles alongside their 2013 current-gen counterparts as some speculated, according to an interview with a trio of developers by DiabloFans.

According to the summary of an interview with game director Josh Mosqueira and designers Travis Day and Wyatt Cheng, Diablo 3's next-gen version will arrive in 2014, which will allow the developers to tailor the games to the systems, rather than just port the current-gen versions. Diablo 3's first console versions will arrive on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Sept. 4, 2013 and be playable at San Diego Comic-Con this week.

Polygon went hands-on with the PS3 version of Diablo 3 during E3 2013, where the developers said they'd already begun testing the game on a PS4 development kit. Be sure to check out our impressions and the story of the changes that the developers made to tailor the game to controllers and consoles.

Update: The interview mentioned has since been updated with a note stating all comments about next-gen systems referred to PlayStation 4 and not Xbox One.
