Diablo III dev on why Blizzard wanted to bring the game to Switch
Blizzard will finally return to Nintendo consoles when Diablo III Eternal Collection makes its debut later this year. But how did the project start in any case? GameSpot posed that question to senior producer Pete Stilwell, and learned about why there was interest in bringing Diablo III to Switch.
Stilwell told the site:
“We were essentially sitting around and talking about projects that would be amazing and additive to what the company has, and maybe even trailblaze some new things. The Switch was a thing we were all playing, and something we were all interested in. We thought of it as something sweet to bring [Diablo III] onto, and then we started experimenting with the Switch and then got to talking with Nintendo–where we believed that it would be feasible and fun to play on. We wanted to guarantee that it would be smooth and responsive, to ensure that it was everything that you wanted it to be for an [action RPG].”
