Blizzard Entertainment says the next gen console architecture makes it easier to patch things on the fly than before.
Lest you think Blizzard Entertainment will release Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition on the Xbox One and PS4 only to forget about it shortly thereafter, production director John Hight stated on Xbox Wire that the former would receive updates very quickly after their release on PC.
Microsoft further added that the Xbox One was “powerful enough to handle large-form patches and can update games in the background.”
Meanwhile, Hight stated on the PlayStation Blog that, “The next-gen console architecture makes it much easier for us to offer ongoing patch support for the PS4 version of the Ultimate Evil Edition. This means that as we continue to patch the game on PC, we’ll now be able to roll out related patch content, as appropriate, on PS4 as well. It’ll take some additional time beyond the PC patch roll out, but we’ll get them to you as quickly as possible.”
Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition will release on Xbox One and PS4 on August 19th.
