What Blizzard game would you most like to see on consoles?
I’ve been thinking about how Diablo 2: Resurrected will be on practically every console, and how that’s pretty awesome, but it also has me feeling greedy. I really want to see Diablo Immortal ported to consoles, like, a lot — I get that it exists primarily as a mobile title, but I don’t do a lot of mobile gaming and I generally prefer a console controller to a mobile screen touch interface, in great part to my being visually disabled. I generally enjoy consoles a lot more for that very reason — even when I play PC I tend to use a console controller if at all possible.
And that idea has me wondering — would I enjoy World of Warcraft on console? Heck, would it even be possible to port that game to a console, considering the sheer amount of abilities and talents that WoW characters have? Games like Diablo and Overwatch work on console because they’re stripped down in terms of options compared to games like WoW, which has so many options and abilities to choose from that a keyboard seems almost a necessity for the game. I’m aware that some players find Overwatch on console lacking because it doesn’t have a good keyboard interface there, but the game is still a lot less option-heavy than WoW.
I also often wonder if Warcraft 3: Reforged would have fared better with a console launch, compared to its fate on PC.
But now it’s time to ask y’all — what games that Blizzard has would you want to see on console? Should the original Diablo get a console port? What about StarCraft 2, which just entered legacy status — would that game have been better served on consoles than it was on PC? Are you with me on the Diablo Immortal for consoles bandwagon, or are you satisfied with it on phones and tablets? What game do you think would find a new lease on life with a console port?
