nope. thats like saying a windows sysadmin can be unix sysadmin
a oracle dba admin can be a sybase/mariadb dba admin.
sure some people have multiple skills, but most certainly not the same facility/expertise
everyone has their niche expertise.
the fact when hiring, you hire people for their expertise. a console programmer is very much different from a pc programmer.
The problem with what you're saying is that this isn't engineering we're talking about, this is software and gaming hardware and networking.. there are so many people out there in need of work who could in some way shape or form be helping out the PC end of things and aren't. Whether they're working for Diablo console team or another business or just haven't been hired yet at all and are still in the pool of unemployed.. it doesn't really matter. What matters is that it appears that Blizzard's Diablo team has abandoned Diablo 3 PC and aren't hiring enough folks to put enough effort into Diablo 3 PC.
After having a horrible horrible launch followed by mediocre patching over a year, I'd say whether they're working on a huge patch or expansion or not.. they need to do some interim patch or vastly better communication.. events..or all of those... something, anything, to keep us awake and interested and convinced that there *is* a corner and that exciting things are on the other side. Right now, we're just not convinced.. some of us like me might be *hopeful*.. but even diehards like me are not convinced.. we don't expect anything great from this team as things currently stand. And no, I'm not talking for everyone, just critical but hopeful fans like me.
And before you call me entitled and say it isn't Blizzard's job to entertain us... well.. in fact.. it *is*.. that's the business that they're in folks. And, currently, they're failing millions of their customers and potential customers in that respect.
If I were a stockholder and I knew this... I'd be pissed.. sure in the short term.. they're doing **great!**.. but in the long term.. Blizzard has been shooting itself in the foot here. Regardless of whether or not it is the same team as Diablo 1 or 2 or not.. Blizzard owes it both to their stockholders and their fans to keep the quality of their product and their maintenance up way higher than they have been. That's it. They need to work better, faster. Not waaay faster.. just .. well any speed at all.
