Diablo 3 on PS4 in 2014

Diablo 3 will convert "click, click, click" to "mash, mash, mash" on current-gen consoles on September 3, but the PS4 won't let the evil in for another year.

"The Diablo 3 team has actually just received the new console generation development kits, so the translation to those platforms is yet to be done. They really like the features on the PS4 controller and want to try and do something cool with the trackpad and share button," noted DiabloFans, following an interview with the game's developers. "Diablo 3 will not be a launch date title for the next generation consoles. It will come in 2014."

Blizzard isn't looking to make a straight port of the game from PC to console platforms – something the studio expressed in detail during E3.

Update: Blizzard reached out to say that any references to the next generation of consoles in the source article were referring only to the PlayStation 4. The source article has also been altered. We've updated the article accordingly and removed mention of Xbox One.
