Blizzard has been revealed to be in active talks with Microsoft regarding the successor to the Xbox 360 – this comes from company executive Rob Pardo.
Pardo said this during the Luminaries Lunch at the GDC. Other lunch attendees – Will Wright, Warren Spector and David Perry, all big names – said they were yet to be approached about the next-gen console.
This is interesting, because it should be noted that Blizzard hasn’t released a console game since 2000 and that its titles sell like hot cakes on PC. But with games like Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2, as well as an unannounced MMO, the company may be looking to bring in a wider audience.
