Diablo 3 for Xbox One Spotted at Online Retailers
As of right now, the only next-gen console getting Diablo 3 is supposed to be the PlayStation 4. However, one online retailer might have given away Blizzard’s plans to bring the popular PC title to the Xbox One.
According to IGN, Best Buy Canada as well as FutureShop listed the Xbox One version Diablo 3 on its website for a short time. It was taken down shortly after being discovered. Fortunately, the site snapped a screengrab of the item online. There’s no real date given, and Best Buy had offered a 12/31/2014 placeholder for when the game is supposed to arrive.
The PlayStation 4 will be getting Diablo 3 on March 25, the same day the Reaper of Souls expansion is slated to arrive. Blizzard hasn’t officially announced an Xbox One version, but Diablo 3 is already available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, so there’s no reason to suspect an Xbox One version won’t be coming eventually.
“One of our goals is to bring Diablo 3 to as many players as possible, but we don’t have any other platform announcements to share at this time,” a Blizzard spokesperson told IGN when asked about the Xbox One iteration.
Typically, when a retailer lists a game for sale and the developer doesn’t flat out deny the supposed game’s existence, there’s a good chance there’s some truth to the rumor. Until Blizzard or Microsoft make an official declaration however, it looks like the PS4 will be the only place to play Diablo 3 on next-gen.
