Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition in development for Xbox One but release not guaranteed

Blizzard is currently developing Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for both PS4 AND Xbox One.

However, a release for the game on Microsoft’s console has not yet been agreed upon.

"I don’t know where we are with Microsoft right now so I can’t really comment on what that contract looks like," Diablo 3 lead producer Alex Mayberry told Videogamer.

"We have that pipeline worked out. We’ve already done it with the 360 and PS3, so that team knows how to develop at the same time for both of those platforms. That’s just what we do. And then Blizzard and Microsoft can work out whatever they work out.

"The point is we are developing for Xbox [One] and PS4 simultaneously. We hit those major platforms and then our goal as a development team is to make them run."

The developer also said that the release date for the game on PS4 should not be too long after its PC arrival on Friday (March 25th), adding: "It’s not far off… [The console team] work in parallel development with us so they’re not far behind".
