Diablo III on Xbox One, PS4 Won’t Get Cross-Play, Seasons

Diablo III may finally have seen its release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, bringing all the dungeon-crawling and looting fun to the next-gen, but Blizzard has announced that on these newer systems, a few things just aren’t going to be possible.  Specifically being that of interactive play between gamers on the Xbox One and PS4, nor the ability for gamers on either system to get access to Seasons.

Lead designer Kevin Martens explained why this was the case, saying that such developments would “definitely not possible at this point with this game.”  He also went on to explain that, “We didn’t built it that way so the two ecosystems are closed. I’m trying to give you the most definitive, least PR answer there is, and that is no, we can’t do that. What the Xbox and PlayStation networks do is different than what Battle.net does.”

Those specific differences are enough to prevent the two systems from participating in Seasons – which include updates like allowing from the creation of a new character from the ground up.  “Seasons requires always online, and that’s one of the major differences in the ecosystems there. For seasonal conquests and things to be what they are, everyone has to be playing on the same leveled field. That’s a great example for something that doesn’t work for consoles.”

Newest information about the second Season for the game can be found here.
