During Sony’s PS4 reveal conference, Blizzard was a surprise appearance as Chris Metzen took to the stage to announce that Diablo III will be heading to PS4 and PS3. No release date was given.

Metzen explained that Blizzard and Sony had entered into a strategic partnership on the deal. Metzen also reminded the crowd that the developer, typically associated with the PC platform, actually cut its teeth on consoles.

Metzen said that the game has been “painstakingly optimised” for the consoles, with attention paid to the control scheme, and features such as 4-player co-op in split-screen mode.

In the coming months the game will be debuted with videos and playable demos. PAX East was mentioned as an expo to look forward to in this regard.
