The lack of offline play was a huge disappointment to many Diablo fans when it was revealed — but now a new interview from Blizzard with Gametrailers seems to hint at the existence of an offline-mode in the PlayStation 4 version of the game.
John Hight, a production director at Blizzard, says in the interview (around the 8:35 mark) that “We think the thing that was really cool, that Chris talked about, is that we’re going to allow for local co-op as well as online co-op.”
“So you can have four people on the same screen, no split-screen, and we just zoom the camera out, or if you’re offline…”
At this point he is cut off by the host but, as WoW Insider point out, the heavy implication in this unfinished sentence is that Diablo III will support offline gameplay as an option.
